Everyone loves a good love story, especially around Valentine’s Day. Everyone dreams of finding that special someone, and whether you’re already married or still looking for “the one”, love is always in the air at Easton. From first dates to engagements and weddings, here are just a few of our favorite Easton love stories. 

“Felicia and I met for the first time at Bar Louie on the very first day we found each other on a dating app. We have been together for nine months and plan on going back to Bar Louie for our one-year anniversary. I even have the receipt from that day and hope the bartender still works there.” – Peter F.

“It will be one year on February 12 this year. My boyfriend and I met each other at Rusty Bucket. I was pleasantly surprised and thus began my stories about my Cena face.” – Eileen B.

“On New Year’s Eve 2004, my boyfriend of two years proposed to me on a bench outside of Brio. He had hoped the Christmas tree was still up, but that year it was taken down early. It was still very romantic and 14 years later we still call a particular bench by the fountain, our bench. Easton has a special place in my heart as I am a small town girl who moved to the big city after I married my husband. Every weekend while we were dating, I would ask to come to Easton. To this day, we now take our three boys and love Easton just as much.” – Abby H.

“We got engaged in April and celebrated with dinner at Cooper’s Hawk afterwards! The staff even greeted us with complimentary champagne and a dessert that spelled “congrats” to celebrate!”- Kari F.

“I got engaged on Christmas Eve at Easton after a carriage ride thru the Towne. It was chilly, so we got hot chocolate at the little place in front of Tiffany’s. When I turned around, that’s when he asked. It was so perfect!” – Tiffanie M.

“My husband and I had our first date at Easton AMC in September 1999. We saw the movie For Love of the Game. We have now been married for over 12 years. Good memory. We have a lot of Easton memories!” – Kathleen S.

“My first date was dinner and a movie at Easton with my husband. We ate at California Pizza Kitchen and saw 50 First Dates at AMC. Later on, we got engaged outside the fountain after a carriage ride and have been married for 10 years. Love Easton! So many memories for us!” – Kim S.

“She said “yes” at the fountain!!! We are from Ecuador, and I came to the U.S. with the idea of listening to that “Yes, I will,” and Easton was the most wonderful place to do it!” –Ernesto Z.

“I met my wife online. We decided to meet for the first time at the Starbucks at Easton, in fact 9 years ago to the day. Now we have been married over five years and still continue to go to the same Starbucks where we met! Happy nine years together Julie!” – Dustin B.

“My husband and I went on our first date at Easton almost nine years ago this September. We had dinner at the Max and Erma’s, and went to AMC for the movie My Best Friend’s Girl. We’ve been together ever since and married for three years now!” – Emily R.

“We decided to meet at Flip Side on our first date. He had never been so I suggested he try it (what guy doesn’t love burgers). I was almost an hour late, but he waited! When we went inside there was a 30-minute wait, so we decided to walk around Easton and get to know each other. Our table was ready soon after, and we ate some good burgers and my favorite—the truffle fries! Afterwards, we walked around the mall and went to See’s Candies for truffles and chocolate coins (I mentioned to him they were my favorite when I was a kid). The date was going well, so we decided to see a movie at AMC Easton. Birdman was playing, so we got tickets for the cinema suites so we could order a few drinks. We watched the movie and you could tell the chemistry was undeniable. Hours had flown by, and we kissed goodbye. Today is our two-year anniversary!” – Guadalupe D.
