how we met
It was a Friday night at a restaurant/bar in The Domain in Austin, TX. Last minute decision to go out after getting back from a work trip and Alex was having a girl’s night out. Classic story of eyes met from across the room and inseparable conversation ensued.
Aside from being a destined duo with our names Alex & Mac and our last names, for now, are Sweet & Hart, we knew we were the ones for each other over Thai food. Carelessly laughing til bellies and cheeks ached forgetting about the delicious food and forgetting that we were in a crowded restaurant. I was also lucky to see how Alex would be as a mother. I have a 6 year old son. To see how Alex took on that role so effortlessly and see how much he loves her has me falling in love again and again.
how they asked
The proposal was a surprise. I proposed to Alex at a winery/vineyard in Gruene, TX. I planned a weekend trip to San Antonio, Tx and to stop in the hill country along the way. We were sharing a bottle of Maomi wine and taking pictures outside in front of the vineyard. I then asked a couple if they could take a picture of us and I used that time to get down on one knee and pull out the ring.
