How We Met
Both transplants to Charlotte, NC, we were busy with work and found it difficult to meet new people. Therefore, we downloaded Hinge and that is where we initially connected. After a few days of talking, we agreed to meet at Crave, one of Charlotte’s favorite dessert bars. There, we chatted for hours over cheesecake and wine.
How They Asked
We took a trip to Brad’s hometown to visit family for the 4th of July holiday. On July 3rd, after a day of sightseeing and family bonding, Brad took me to his favorite childhood playground near the home of his late grandparents to be close to their spirits. As we sat on the swings, watching the pre-4th of July fireworks, Brad expressed that he wanted to share his life with me, past, present, future, and forever. He then leaned over and asked, “So will you…will you marry me?” I exclaimed, “Of course!” and Brad ran to his car to get the ring that he had hidden from me. When he returned, he slid the ring on my finger while on bended knee.
