Elizabeth and Bretton

How we met:We met when I was living in Austin and he was visiting in 2009 at a mutual friend’s St. Patrick’s Day party. At the time we were both dating the people. In early 2013 we were both single and had moved to the East coast. I was finishing up school at USC and he was living in Atlanta. We bonded over Louis CK stand up and our affinity for eating Tacos.

How he asked: It was my birthday weekend and he had rented a cabin for ourselves and 4 of our close friends in the North Georgia mountains. On Saturday morning we got up and made breakfast to prepare for a hike that he had found to a waterfall. It was an absolutely beautiful day and the mountains were lit up because of the leaves changing. After taking the wrong route up the mountain and driving on some rather treacherous roads we made it to the trail. The trail was 1.5 miles to the waterfall. When we got to the waterfalls my friend Sabrina and I began hopping on the rocks while her husband a photographer took photos. Bretton then called my name from behind and I looked and he was down on one knee. He spoke those sweet words “Elizabeth, Will you Marry me?” and I sunk down into his arms and sat on his knee saying “YES, Yes!” He whispered that he had many other things he planned to say and I hushed him saying he can now spend the rest of his life telling me those things. The entire moment was caught on video and we were able to share this with all of our family and friends.
