Tori and Austin
How We Met
Austin and I met on our college campus three years ago. He had just transferred to Bellarmine the semester before and was hoping to meet some new people. A simple “hello” in the campus center turned into an impromptu coffee date in the campus center. We ended up chatting for well over an hour. We felt an instant connection and decided to exchange numbers and plan a more official first date three days later. We have been on hundreds of dates since then, but from that day forward, we’ve been the best of friends and solemates. The rest is history…
how they asked
Austin and I were vacationing in Charleston, South Carolina. Usually I’m the one who plans everything, but he assured me he had the evening all planned and that I didn’t need to worry. He had me get all dressed up for an early dinner, but said we had to make a stop first. He directed our driver to the beautiful White Point Gardens. We got out of the car and Austin led me through the park. We found a bench to sit on. All of the sudden Austin gets down on one knee and asks me to be his wife. He hired a photographer to capture the moment and our first photos together as an engaged couple immediately thereafter. It was an absolutely dream come true and I couldn’t have asked for a better fiancé or proposal.
