How We Met
We had been dating for about 2.5 years long distance when he proposed. We met through a friend that moved from Chicago, where I live, to Atlanta, where Brett lives. Countless flights and miles going back and forth to be with each other, and we fell more in love with every trip. We were in South Africa on vacation in March 2018 when he changed our lives forever.

It was the perfect place for our love story to unite us for the rest of our lives. Just as the oceans came together, we were finally going to come together for a lifetime full of love and adventures.
