how we met
Sara was completely oblivious to the fact that Bradley was a part of her group of friends that went to Warped Tour together back in 2011 and she ended up cropping him out of the photos because she didn’t know him. We didn’t have the greatest first interaction with each other. We both grew up in Laurel, Maryland, went to the same high school, and even had mutual friends, but our paths never crossed. During one summer break from college, we met through a mutual friend and a right swipe on Tinder – romance at its finest. We spent months talking and getting to know each other, then eventually decided to make it official in December 2015.
how they asked
The proposal happened on December 23, 2017. Sara believed that we were only going out for a simple dinner with Bradley’s family. We went to the Gaylord in the National Harbor to look at the Christmas lights and go to a restaurant there. When we arrived there, Bradley’s family walked away. Once they left Sara and Bradley alone, he went down on one knee and the Christmas lights and music started. He proposed to her in front of the lights and Sara said, “Yes!” Once she said “yes,” all of her friends and family came out to surprise and congratulate them. Bradley planned this with the help of his family and cooperation with Sara’s family and friends. He was planning this for weeks and even took the time to ask her father for Sara’s hand in marriage.
