Charisma and Cole

Wedding Proposal Ideas in The Wine Loft in Richmond, VA

How We Met

I met Cole at Sheltering Arms hospital in Richmond, Va. I had been working as a rehabilitation tech in the inpatient side of the hospital and Cole worked out as a non-patient with a community health program. We first noticed each other at the hospital but had a more intimate conversation at a gala held but Sheltering Arms. Later that evening, Cole slid into my DM’s on Instagram and the rest is history!

Charisma and Cole's Engagement in The Wine Loft in Richmond, VA

For weeks, Cole and I had been practicing to sing a duet with a local musician. Little did I know, he had also been working on an original “proposal” song with the same musician. The night of our proposal, we performed our duet together and I rushed to sit down right after because I was quite nervous. Cole stayed at the microphone and asked me if I would like to hear the song he had written and of course I responded “YES!” After singing to me, Cole asked me to marry him. Since Cole is a quadriplegic and was unabe to get down on one knee, his mother got down on one knee for him and handed him the ring. He presented me the ring and I could hardly even respond, I couldn’t hold back my emotions! But of, I SAID YES!
