Our Story

How We Met

Sam and I met in 2016 in Atlanta, GA. We both went to college at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, but since he was a few years older, we never had the chance to meet. When Sam graduated in 2013, he moved back to his hometown of Atlanta, and I moved there a few years later. We met through mutual friends and knew each other for a few months before we went on our first date (to dinner and ice skating!) in January 2017 and we have been dating ever since. We both work and live in the Midtown Atlanta area with our 1 year old puppy Paddington and love it here!

The Proposal

I still can't believe Sam pulled off the most incredible surprise for our proposal. I thought I would definitely be able to pick up on his plans since we were spending so much time together during the quarantine - but dang he was good! It was a Friday night, and we had just signed the contract to buy a new townhouse near Virginia Highlands in Atlanta. He mentioned that we had to stop by the new house before we went to dinner with our friends, and I didn't think anything of it since we had been regularly driving by the house to check on things. We walked in the house, and I remembered that several of my family and friends had been asking for pictures, so I pulled out my phone. I started videoing a tour of the house, and when we got up to the rooftop patio - I saw flowers laying on the ground. It took me a minute to realize what was happening, but the best part was I caught it all on video! It was the sweetest proposal with just the two of us, and then we drove down the street to a family friend's house where both of our parents and a few friends were waiting to celebrate. It was an incredible night that we will remember forever!
