Margaret and Reavis

How We Met

Rev and I met through “Bumble,” a dating app and had our first date at Mellow Mushroom. We had mutual friends and immediately hit it off! Our love of Christ, family, and friendship gave us so much to talk about and learn more from each other. He went to Elon University for undergrad and played on the football team. I am currently a law student at Elon Law. We both have lived in Charlotte, NC for most of our lives and plan to live there after we get married in April 2020!

Below is a picture that his friends took of us on our first date when they walked past and saw us in the window! (I was so embarrassed, but now I’m so thankful to have this memory!).

How He Asked

On October 13, the same day that my parents got engaged 29 years ago, Rev proposed to me in the most perfect way, in front of both of our families! He proposed at Ballantyne Resort in Charlotte on the 18th hole while our families watched from a balcony close by. The weather was beautiful, the setting was gorgeous, and y’all… the ring was GORGEOUS! He got down on one knee, I turned around, and while we both happy-cried through the whole thing, he promised to love me, take care of me, and asked me to marry him.

I of course said “YES!” and then our families immediately came running out cheering and celebrating with us! After, we celebrated at a private dinner where both of our families mingled and were able to get to know each other better. We shared stories, excitedly planned for the future, and had the best day of our entire lives! I am so blessed to have this amazing man and his wonderful family in my life! God is great and His plan is perfect! #fordeverandalways #finallyford
