Brandon and I met, many years ago on a charter fishing boat on the Chesapeake Bay. It was the most perfect July day and I know that was the beginning of God’s plan. Our families have supported us through life and have always pushed us back together, because they too knew it was meant to be. Our sweet grandparents on both of our father’s side have been friends since they were just kids. They are the closest friends we have and now they will really be family. Watching our grandmothers laugh about how crazy it is that their grandchildren are getting married, was the sweetest thing!
Brandon and my sister have been planning this perfect proposal for weeks, and i’d be lying if I said I didn’t see this coming. From the long conversations we had about marriage, to my sister being a doll and smiling more than usual, I had my suspicions. When I started receiving texts from family that they’d be coming over on Christmas eve, I knew. I am honored that so many people wanted to be there for Brandon and I. Thanks to everyone who came over, regardless of their colds, long travels, and other plans. It really does mean a lot to us! I still don’t know how we crammed everyone into that living room and how those old floors held us all, but i’m glad they did!
We are planning to marry here at my family home on the hill, on October 21st 2017!
