Amanda and Will
How We Met
I am originally from Scranton, PA and Will is from Highlands, NC. We met while we were both living in Columbia, SC. I moved there from PA and Will got transferred there from Charleston. Our first date was at Starbucks then at weekly Supper Club with friends. We hit it off immediately! I got transferred to Charleston to be near my sister and Will and I used to drive back and forth between Columbia and Charleston. Will moved down shortly after so we could finally move in together!
How He Asked
Will sent me a text early on during the week asking if I wanted to go walk the gardens then grab dinner at Middleton Place afterwards. We originally had dinner reservations at Middleton Place in January however, Will got called into work so we had to cancel. We got to Magnolia Plantation first in the late afternoon as it was very busy for Easter weekend. We were making our way along the path and Will wanted to grab a picture by the white bridge. After taking a selfie on my phone, Will took my hands and got down on one knee. I was so so surprised and happy! He asked me to marry him and opened up the box to reveal a gorgeous Tacori ring! I just adore my Tacori classic crescent ring. While I was at work one Saturday in February, Will attended a Tacori event at Diamonds Direct to learn about their different styles. I may have dropped some subtle hints the past few weeks but little did I know, he already bought the ring! What made our moment even more special was that it was perfectly captured by Val & Ed. I had no idea he had all that planned out; he even went there after work earlier that week to scope out the perfect proposal spot.
