How We Met
Brantley and I met in class at college. My recent ex boyfriend was actually in the class too (talk about awkward). Brantley ended up asking me out and on our first date he told me he was going to marry me. Of course I thought he was joking, but years later, look at us now!He’s my best friend and I can’t wait to marry him.
how they asked
Brantley tricked me into throwing out the first pitch of his baseball game for “marketing” (he told me it would get more people to come to their baseball games). There were two other people before me but then it was my turn. I threw the pitch, and immediately afterwards he turned me around and said “look at 3rd base”…
The guys at each base were holding signs – one said “will”, the other said “you” and the last one said “marry”. Next thing I know Brantley is down on one knee proposing to me in the middle of the field with the ring placed in the center of a baseball!
Also, my mom had shoulder surgery the day before and my grandfather’s funeral was unexpectedly two days prior to the proposal. I had always told Brantley that my family had to be there when he proposed because it wouldn’t be the same without them. After I said yes, my mom, grandma (recent widower), 2 sisters, dad, and 3 best friends run on to the field!! He even had a photographer hidden and taking pictures. Best day of my life!
