Sara and Russell

How We Met

We met on Tinder! I was over Tinder after a few awkward dates and my mom insisted that I let her swipe for me. So I did and she would not stop talking about how I “matched” with this guy named Russell. She kept talking about how he was a good one. Russell messaged me that night and the rest is history!

How He Asked

Russell told me to pick out a restaurant that I wanted to try in Charleston, SC. I picked 82 Queen and was super excited! He told me he got reservations for 5:00 pm because that was the only time we could get in which I thought was weird.

We got downtown Charleston a little bit early so we took a stroll around Waterfront Park. He purposed in front of the beautiful pineapple fountain. Russell secretly hired a photographer to capture the whole thing and take engagement pictures.

He then said we were not going to 82 Queen but we are going to Folly Beach. When we got to Folly Beach we pulled up to this gorgeous beach house and all of our friends and family were there waiting for us!
