Molly and Cole
How We Met
We met through a mutual friend Sara when I was in grad school. Sara thought we would be a good fit. She invited him to our house gathering before the St. Pats festival. We had a great conversation that day but I didn’t agree to go out with him until the summer and I’m so glad I did!
On our first date, he came to my door with beautiful flowers and he took me to see a local band. I’m a huge music fan so I knew right away he was special :)
How He Asked
We went to the Avett Brothers concert in Charlotte on New Year’s Eve with my sister, Zoe. The concert was a surprise Christmas gift! I was just excited to be with my two best friends and ring in the new year with them. During the concert, Cole was sweating up a storm and I asked him if he was alright and that maybe he should take off his coat but he refused to take it off which I thought was strange!
I was shocked when he proposed after the concert and we enjoyed dessert at Amelie’s because I love chocolate and coffee :) He told me later he was nervous and hot but couldn’t take off his coat because he had the ring in his pocket!
