Evan Milby & Alanna Erickson

Age: His: 23/Hers: 21
Occupation: His: Touring musician/Hers: Photographer
Together Since: 2010

What was most memorable about your proposal?
ALANNA: It was at Laundry’s, where we had our first date. He had a music box made that played “Going to the Chapel”, all of my family and friends were there. EVAN: I had the ring in the music box, wrapped up.

Why do you want to have a Block Party Wedding?
EVAN: Thinking back, God’s always opened a lot of doors for us. Trusting God sets us up to be rewarded. This is one of those blessings that God could give us. It would also be a financial blessing. I’m lucky to have someone who’s loving enough to let me follow my dreams. And how cool would it be to have it outside? 
I love the history of Downtown Pensacola and the look of it. Plus, we’re not shy at all.

If you don’t win, where and when do you plan on tying the knot?
ALANNA: We don’t know for sure where, we know that we would probably have to wait until next May. We really want to be married now.

What does a typical “date night” look like for you?
EVAN: It depends, we love to go grab dinner and then coffee/dessert. We like taking a couple blankets and my guitar out to the beach and spending some time together by the ocean.

Important reception question—Wobble, Cupid Shuffle, Electric Slide, Harlem Shake (or all of the above)?
EVAN: I would go with Electric Slide, only because I’m not the best dancer in the world.
ALANNA: I would do the Harlem Shake because it’s just so stupid. It would be fun.
