Their adventure began at Goshen Scout Reservation surrounded by the wilderness of the Blue Ridge Mountains and beautiful Lake Merriweather. Grace and Allan, began their teen years as camp counselors, where they taught valuable skills and created lasting memories for the scouts and each other. While supervising hundreds of scouts, they bonded over campfires, late nights under the stars, and weekend trips into downtown Lexington on a rickety school bus. Their adventure continued as Grace became a JMU Duke and Allan headed to Mary Washington University. Throughout university, Grace and Allan spent weekends crisscrossing Virginia to spend time together. After graduation, Allan settled in Richmond, VA and Grace soon followed. With help from Grace’s friends, Blake and Erica, Allan proposed at High Battery Park in Charleston, South Carolina. Not surprisingly, their engagement was celebrated with the purchase of a travel camper. Grace and Allan have been enjoying their engagement in the wilderness with bonfires under the stars.
