How We Met

We met using a dating app, Hinge! We “matched” on July 4th, 2019, had our first date on July 9th, and were pretty much inseparable from that point on. To honor how we met, our wedding hashtag is #FromHingetoHitched.

How They Asked

We decided to go to a cabin in the Smoky Mountains to celebrate our one year anniversary, and Eli’s secret plan was to propose after dinner. It almost didn’t happen though because once we got up to the cabin, a copperhead snake was right by the front steps! We both panicked and tried to scare off the snake just so we could get inside. I think it added a lot to Eli’s stress! The snake finally left, and everything went back on schedule with Eli asking me to be his wife right after dinner and then we had the rest of the weekend to ourselves!
