Our Story

Thinking back to the summer of 2012 after graduating from Notre Dame Prep, ready and eager to start college in the seems like just yesterday that best friends turned soulmates. What crazy 18-year old's decide to start a long-distance relationship right before beginning college at Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas, TX and Georgia Tech (GT) in Atlanta, GA? Most are eager to meet all new people and leave their high school days (and relationships) behind. But not Tyler and Megan...even though some were skeptical. Shortly after Tyler rushed Sig Ep in the fall, two of his fraternity brothers bet him two 30-racks of beer that his relationship with his "high school girlfriend" would end before Tyler's sophomore year...let's just say the 60 beers saved Tyler a trip to the liquor store for the next few weeks.

Megan and Tyler were first and foremost, high school best friends... who later turned girlfriend and boyfriend. The solid foundation they built from the beginning made the long distance SO worth it. They made the best and most of becoming Southwest A-Listers (from flying to visit each other so often) and loved meeting each other's friends, exploring each other's cities, attending Tyler's away weekends and Megan's Tri Delt formals. They pushed each other to be the best versions of themselves and love and support one another while also becoming strong and independent on their own. During holidays when they were both home in Scottsdale, AZ, it was tough to juggle the short amount of time they had between their families and date nights.

Tyler was an all-star graduating from Georgia Tech in 2017 with a degree in Aerospace Engineering while Megan excelled at SMU, graduating Summa Cum Laude in 2016. Tyler went on to attend Law School at the University of Houston and graduated in May 2020 and recently passed his Arizona Bar Exam. Tyler interned at and will soon be joining the Law Firm of Snell and Wilmer in downtown Phoenix as a Patent Lawyer. The Wolf and Shell Families are thrilled to have an attorney in the family! Megan went on to earn her Master's of Accounting from SMU, received her CPA License, and worked for PwC as a Tax Accountant for the past 3 years before moving into real estate at STORE Capital, a public REIT in Scottsdale, AZ.

Tyler surprised Megan with a staycation and spa day at the Omni Montelucia last December as her "Christmas Gift." They had an amazing day relaxing and enjoying each other's company. Little did Megan know, December 23rd was the night her dreams came true - Tyler proposed! They celebrated at the Omni before heading off to dinner at Ocean 44 where both of their families surprised Megan to celebrate. The happy tears truly never stopped that night. They are so thrilled.

After almost 8 years of long distance (their entire relationship!), they both moved back to AZ in the spring of 2020 and could not be any happier to finally be together. Not even a global pandemic can stop their love - or stop them from officially getting married!
