Olivia and Jeffrey
How We Met: Jeffrey and I met in college when we both attended The University of Alabama. Becoming friends at first, Jeff graduated college and moved back to New Jersey.
With the distance being over 1,000 miles we thought we would just remain close friends. Over the Summer our phone conversations became longer and longer and we knew there was something more to our relationship. Two years of long distance dating and one puppy later we were finally together in one town and living together!
How He Asked: Jeff surprised me with a long weekend getaway to Charleston for my 23rd birthday. After a day of exploring and relaxing by the pool we went back to our hotel to get ready and have a driver pick us up to take us to dinner at his favorite restaurant in town, High Cotton.
When the driver arrived, Jeff said we were taking a detour down to White Point Gardens down by the water.
When we got out of the car he took me on to this beautiful historic gazebo and I took in the waterfront views. When I turned around he was down on one knee and I immediately starting crying!
After I said yes and he put the beautiful ring on my finger he said “say Hi to the camera!” and photographer appeared and she captured the entire thing!
We then went on a two hour engagement shoot around historic Charleston!
