Hannah Godwin and Dylan Barbour's romance is one of the favorites amongst Bachelor Nation.

Godwin was initially introduced to audiences in season 23 of The Bachelor, while Barbour starred in season 15 of The Bachelorette. But it wasn't until season six of Bachelor in Paradise, which aired in 2019, that the pair first crossed paths and got the opportunity to win each other over.

From the start, tech entrepreneur Barbour was head over heels for former Alabama pageant queen Godwin, and by the show's second rose ceremony, Godwin was reciprocating feelings.

Things intensified when he used his date card to treat Godwin to dinner and admitted he was "starting to fall in love" with her. At the time, Godwin also said she was "all in" for a romance with Barbour. Their relationship continued to grow from there and as the show approached its finale, they were deeply committed to each other and in love.

The season ended with three couples getting engaged, including Godwin and Barbour. Since then, the couple has made major strides — from moving in together to figuring out wedding plans, and they have shared plenty of sweet moments on social media.

Here is a complete timeline of Hannah Godwin and Dylan Barbour's relationship.

August 2019: Hannah Godwin and Dylan Barbour meet on Bachelor in Paradise

Godwin and Barbour first met on "the beach" during the sixth season of Bachelor in Paradise, which premiered on Aug. 5, 2019. They hit it off right away, but Godwin also connected with contestant Blake Horstmann and had to ultimately decide between the two men during the second rose ceremony.

She ended up giving her rose to Barbour and they continued to explore their connection on the show.

Viewers watched Barbour propose to Godwin during the Bachelor in Paradise finale, which aired on Sept. 17, 2019.

"This is the end of Paradise, but it's just the beginning of our story," Barbour said in his speech. "I didn't come here to spend my summer with you, I came here to spend my life with you. And I'm ready for that life to start now."

At first, Godwin expressed some hesitancy to hop into another serious relationship after her ex — The Bachelor's Colton Underwood — broke her heart during season 23 of the show. She said the thought of being "broken again" was something that "terrified" her, also noting that despite receiving her father's blessing of her and Underwood's past romance, the relationship still "crumbled."

However, that hesitancy didn't deter Barbour. "I know how important your family is to you and it's one of the million reasons why I love you," he said. "I'm willing to get on the plane with you tonight and go to Alabama and meet them because I cannot wait to meet them, and I also can't wait to take the next step with you and start our lives together."

"I can't leave here without showing you how much I love you," he continued, right before proposing to Godwin with a classic cushion-cut halo ring by Neil Lane. Her response? A heartfelt "yes."

As viewers saw, Godwin was at first torn between two love interests on Bachelor in Paradise — Barbour and Horstmann. After Godwin and Barbour's fairytale ending aired, Godwin shared all the reasons why she chose Barbour during an exclusive interview with PEOPLE.

"His words and actions lined up," Godwin said of Barbour. "He would say these things but he would also show me. Our personalities connected. Romantically were very attracted to each other, but I also see him as somebody I can spend every day with and laugh with and who can be my friend. And that's really cool."

She added, "I realized that whomever I gave my rose to, I wouldn't want to leave without," she says. "And that was Dylan. As soon as that clicked, I was all in."

She also shared how being on the show has affected her life and called it "mind blowing."

"A year ago I was filming [The Bachelor], now I have a fiancé and he's the best guy ever. When I was on the show I had no concept of the amount of people that watched and the amount of people that get invested in this," she said. "There's more eyeballs on me, but it's really nice." She added, "It is neat to work with these brands who I would never even dream about them knowing who I was a year ago."

When asked if her and Barbour's wedding would be televised, she said that they will most likely be "keeping it private."

"We loved sharing our relationship with the world, but I think our favorite moments are just by ourselves and not having to show anybody or prove to anybody who we are or anything. So I think we might just keep it private," the influencer continued.

"I was just really excited to see our family and have Hannah meet the friends I grew up with, and then to meet the friends that Hannah grew up with," Barbour told PEOPLE.

Godwin was on a similar page, saying, "I just was naturally so excited about some of my friends and family who have never even been to California before. It was such a fun event, and I just wanted everybody to let loose, put the phones down, be in the moment. I feel like those events are very rare, especially living out here."

In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, the couple discussed doing long-distance and shared that they were traveling to see each other three to four times a week. "I would say more often than not, we're together more than couples that live in the same city that don't live together, to be honest," Barbour told PEOPLE.

Although Godwin noted she and her fiancé would like to live in the same city eventually, they were prioritizing their work lives for the time being. "We don't want to have any undercover or deep-rooted resentment or something for making a decision too early about where we're going to be," she said. "I feel like Dylan feels like he has a little home here in L.A., and I feel like I have a little home in San Diego right now. That's what it's feeling like, which has been nice."
