We met each other online- a modern love story. Our first date was at Uncorked, a self-serve wine bar in downtown Charleston. And after hours of talking and getting to know each other we knew that we wanted to see each other again soon. However, Brad was leaving for a vacation to Hawaii with his family just a few days later. That didn't stop us though; we managed to see each other two more times that weekend!
In August of 2023 we vacationed at a resort in Playa del Carmen, Mexico with close friends. On our second night after dinner Brad suggested we go take group pictures since everyone was dressed nicely After one photo the group parted like the seas, leaving Brad and I alone on a small dune of sand overlooking the waves. He pulled an illuminated ring box from his pocket and simply but beautifully asked, "Will you marry me?" In complete awe and unable to form words, I vigorously nodded my head yes. It was a beautiful night of celebration followed by an unforgettable vacation.
