Breana and Charlie

How We Met

We met online through OkCupid, I had recently moved back to North Carolina and had decided to give online dating a chance. Shortly after joining Charlie and I found each other, started messaging through the site. After about a week of messaging I decided to give him my number, unfortunately I gave him the wrong number at first! Luckily I decided to check that it was right after a few hours of no text messages from him. Soon after we decided to go on our first date at Village Tavern in Reynolda Village in Winston-Salem. That was in June 2013, and here we are today!

How He Asked

We had been talking about getting married for the past few months, but within the last month we were beginning to seriously discuss it. He asked my father and stepmom for permission, and all that was left was my mom and step dad. Halloween we decided to make a trip to visit my family in Florida and he asked my mom and stepdad for their permission. This pass weekend (November 6th-8th) we made a trip to Charlotte for the Carolina Panthers vs. Green Bay Packers game. If you follow football you’ll know it was a fantastic game for any Panthers fan! Charlie decided that he was craving clam chowder from Village Tavern so we decided on a Sunday date night. Everything during dinner seemed normal, the usual dinner followed by a walk around Reynolda Village. Everything seemed normal, a proposal never crossed my mine. Next thing I know Charlie is in front of me and down on one knee asking me to marry him! <3 And of course the answer was YES!
