Molly and Logan

Engagement Proposal Ideas in The Horseshoe on University of South Carolina's campus

How We Met

Molly and Logan met while attending The University of South Carolina, Go Gamecocks! Molly was in her second year of law school and Logan was in his second year working for the University of South Carolina Football team. Their mutual friend, Ryan Fischer, decided Molly and Logan would be the perfect match, so Ryan tried a number of different ways to bring the two together. But after many many many failed attempts, and six months of trying, Ryan finally convinced Molly to ask Logan to her law school formal, The Barrister’s Ball. After a great night and a lot of dancing followed by some karaoke with friends (including half the bridal party), Logan called Molly the next week and asked her on a proper date. Their first “proper” date was to Liberty Tap Room in the Vista, and as they say, the rest was history!

How He Asked

Because their lives revolve around SEC Football, and Logan’s job with the South Carolina Gamecocks, Logan and his co-workers staged a recruiting emergency. Every year, before the season picks up again in August, the team has 2 practices a day, “two-a-days” at the end of July. When the last weekend of July rolls around, the staff and players get that final weekend off, before August official practice starts. It’s everyone’s last real weekend of freedom until after “signing day” in February. So, everyone makes big plans with family and friends to enjoy that final weekend. Logan asked Molly to go for drinks with friends and then a nice dinner just the two of them. At drinks, some friends got called back to work for a recruiting emergency. So, Molly and Logan were left alone at the happy hour.

Logan suggested they go ahead to dinner at one of their favorite restaurants (but it was on the other side of town), Molly willingly obliged because she loves the restaurant (and food). So, the two got into the car to ride over to the restaurant. In the car, Logan got a call from his boss and told him about the emergency and how he was really sorry to interrupt the date but that he really needed help. His boss said Logan needed to move the golf carts for the campus tour (which is what they show recruits around in on campus) from the University’s historic Horseshoe to the hotel where the recruits were staying. A little background on the Horseshoe, it is a beautiful southern display at God doing his best work. Lush greenery, and historic buildings play host the original campus of the University that was founded in 1801. During the civil war, General Sherman spared the Horseshoe from his burning campaign because he wanted to host the Union troops and hospital at the beautiful scene.

Ok, back to the story, when Logan and Molly got to the Horseshoe, there were no golf carts around, and Logan got down on one knee and popped the question!

The only person there was a photographer capturing every moment! This was such a special proposal for Molly and Logan because they both graduated from the University and it will always hold a special place in their hearts. Once a Gamecock, always a Gamecock!
