Proxmox on Debian 10, keep losing connection after creating Linux Bridge and then rebooting

I'm trying to install proxmox on debian 10. Following the official wiki and everything works great until I try to create a llnux bridge. The machine loses internet connection after I create a linux bridge and reboot. I've tested this out with 3 different reinstalls. I've tried it with and without installing ifupdown2 and the results are the same.

Attached are pictures of my ip addr command and /etc/network/interfaces file post reboot. Since I lose ssh connection, I couldn't get this info in text format so I had to take pics with my cell.
