ERIN FOSTER'S ELABORATE WEDDING CEREMONY
The television writer began dating Simon Tikhman in August 2018. After dating for over a year, Erin Foster's boyfriend, Tikhman, pulled off a surprise proposal on the beautiful TV personality while in Napa Valley, California.

The wedding ceremony was a well-planned event, with the couple even lodging their guests at the Graduate Hotel, which was just 40 minutes away from the venue of the ceremony.
Erin looked gorgeous in a Danielle Frankel dress, and she completed the look with Martin Katz jewelry and ivory Saint Laurent heels. Meanwhile, Erin Foster's husband, businessman Simon Tikhman, wore a Todd Snyder tux.
The couples' wedding had in attendance several celebrities, including Kate Hudson, Rachel Zoe, Jonah Hill, amongst others.
Erin Foster's wedding beautifully came together because of the love and support she got from her friends and, most notably, her large family. But Erin had a rocky relationship with her family while growing up.
STEPPING AWAY FROM A COMPLICATED CHILDHOOD
Looking from the outside, many people would wish for the sought of privileged life Erin Foster had while growing up. She was born to famous parents, dad David Foster, a legendary record producer and mom, former model Rebecca Dyer.
David Foster and Rebecca Dyer shared two other daughters, Sara and Jordan Foster. The pair divorced in 1986 barely four years after their marriage, and Erin and her sisters lived with their mom while their father remarried actress Linda Thompson in 1991, becoming stepfather to Brody and Brandon Jenner.
During a 2019 interview with Kate Hudson and Oliver on their "Sibling Revelry" podcast, Erin and her sister Sara revealed that they felt a deep resentment towards their father and their step-siblings while growing up.
The beautiful sisters revealed that they loathed the fact that their father spent most of their childhood raising his other children while they lived with their mom, Rebecca Dyer. Shedding more light on the pains they felt as children, Erin explained:
"So from the ages of 3 and 5, we were living with our mom, and our dad was living in this $20 million house with Brandon and Brody. It had the trolley, it had the pool."
Erin and her sister claim the different lifestyles they had from their other siblings, spurred them to step out of their father's shadow.
Over the years, Erin and her sister have developed a strong working relationship, collaborating on several projects, including the hugely successful VH1 comedy series "Barely Famous," a satirical reflection of their privileged lifestyle. In 2017, Erin and her sister teamed up again as the creative heads of the dating app, "Bumble."

ERIN FOSTER'S MARRIED LIFE
Married life surely looks good on the "Barely Famous" star, and Erin has been posting receipts to prove it. The talented writer has been sharing some cute pictures with her husband, Tikhman, on her Instagram page.
Earlier in the year, during an interview with PEOPLE, Erin expressed her optimism and excitement at beginning a whole new chapter in her life with Tikhman. She said:
"It feels really nice and it feels safe and cozy that I have a husband. Like I have a person keeping me safe from the world, you know?"
While she described the wedding as the best day of their lives, Erin revealed that she and her husband were looking forward to creating new memories together as a couple.
A few months later, Erin found herself amid a massive backlash from the online community after she jokingly expressed her relief over having her wedding to Tikhman months before the COVID-19 outbreak.
Erin shared her thoughts while posting a picture of herself and Tikhman at the altar during their end of the year wedding.
Her comments didn't sit well with many people who took to her comment section to scold the 37-year-old writer. One particular commenter sharply criticized her saying:
"completely idiotic during this time when so many have lost so much."
Erin Foster wasn't fazed by the waves of criticisms, and she still maintained her initial stand while explaining that she meant no harm with her post, and it had nothing to do with what had been lost.
Though Erin still seems to be in the honeymoon phase of her marriage, her fans are already looking forward to the couple expanding their family and giving how long they have been stuck at home due to the Coronavirus, exciting news might be coming from that space sooner than expected.
