How We Met
We met in student council class at Wren High School in Piedmont, South Carolina (nerds, right?!). Aubrey was my senior prom date and we have been crazy about one another ever since.
When I decided to go to Auburn University, about four hours away from our hometown, I wasn’t sure what would happen to our special relationship. But, we have dated five years and overcame the long distance. We are both proud tiger fans as he goes to Clemson University and I’m an Auburn alumna.
How They Asked
So, I knew something was up when Aubrey tucked in his shirt for a casual lunch. But I went along with the plans him and my best friend made for lunch near her lake house and a lake day afterward. The Reserve at Lake Keowee is absolutely breathtaking. From the gorgeous homes to the cutest little town center, you feel like you’ve entered a whole different country. We got out of the car and started walking towards a beautiful view of the lake. Before I knew it, Aubrey was down on one knee, asking me to be his wife. Then we headed to my best friend’s house, who was supposed to be meeting us for lunch and is now my Maid of Honor, and SO many of friends from all across the country were there along with our families.
I was so surprised and happy! We spent the rest of the day riding on the boat and enjoying the company of all of my favorite people in the world. It was a magical day.
