Taylor Strecker’s Ex-Husband: The Reasons Behind Their Divorce
Taylor Strecker and Brett Epstein got engaged on December 13, 2014, and exchanged wedding vows on October 17, 2015. Their initial meeting took place at a Penn State lacrosse event.
Taylor Strecker later separated from Brett, and her romantic involvement shifted towards Tyler Donohue, a videographer and editor. Unfortunately, the specific date of Taylor and Brett’s separation remains undisclosed.

Taylor Strecker Coming Out As A Lesbian
When Taylor Strecker, the host of the daily talk show “The Taylor Strecker Show” on Patreon and the podcast “Taste of Taylor,” initially crossed paths with videographer and editor Taylor Donohue during a video shoot, it wasn’t a case of love at first sight. They shared the same name, which Strecker found “unforgivable” initially.
However, Strecker needed a videographer for her blog and decided to hire Donohue for the job. Over time, they formed a strong friendship and started developing romantic feelings for each other. Although Strecker had recently separated and had never experienced romantic feelings for a woman before, she decided to take a chance. Fortunately, that leap of faith paid off, and Taylor and Taylor fell in love.
After dating for five years, Strecker and Donohue chose an engagement date and went ring shopping together at Love Locked. On November 10, 2020, they each orchestrated a surprise proposal for the other. Strecker blindfolded Donohue and brought her to their favorite piano bar, Marie’s Crisis, where she got down on one knee. Donohue, on the other hand, decorated their roof deck and arranged for their old friend Ed McFarland to prepare a private dinner for them at their Jersey City apartment.
The couple decided to tie the knot on August 14, 2021, at Taylor Strecker’s parents’ home in Cohasset, Massachusetts. Strecker explains, “It was a no-brainer. During the pandemic, the Taylors were ‘stuck’ there for six weeks, so it became our second home, and we wanted to share this picturesque New England harbor with the rest of our family and closest friends.”
Donohue adds, “We got engaged in November, so we only had nine months to plan. That said, with our hectic work schedules and our ‘it’s-just-a-dinner-party’ mindset, we only really kicked into high gear in the last six weeks. Despite that, they managed to keep it relatively stress-free, with only a few tense moments, thanks to their incredible couples therapist!”
