Katie and Trent

how we met

We both grew up about 15 minutes from each other but didn’t meet until we went to college at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. We started dating our senior year of college when we both lived on Wrightsville beach. When I graduated in 2010 I moved to Houston, TX and Trent moved as soon as he graduated the following year. We lived in Houston together for over 3 years and decided we needed to get back to the beach so landed in Charleston, SC. After 8 years of dating he finally popped the question.

how he asked

It was a normal Saturday (Labor Day weekend 2017), I had just finished a yoga class and we both went down to the beach for some sun, swimming, and do get brunch at our favorite restaurant. I was not expecting anything! After we sat on the beach for a little I started to get hungry so asked if we could go eat. On our way down the beach access, in Trent’s true prankster fashion, he pretended to trip and I turned around to see if he was OK. He was down on one knee and asked me to marry him!

It was so special because we spend so much time at the beach we live only a few minutes from and just how I would have wanted my proposal, peaceful and just the two of us. We went straight to brunch to celebrate.
