In her own words
Q: How did you meet?
A: Jacob and I grew up on the same street near Irmo for several years, we ran in the same elementary school circles (do elementary school circles exist?), but it wasn’t till we were in our 30s, working on our careers in Atlanta when we actually got together. My dad planted the seed, in the most embarrassing way possible – after meeting Jacob at a funeral and showing him my picture. “He lives in Atlanta and he listens to Phish and he does kind of the same job that you do,” my dad explained to me on the phone after meeting him. While nothing came of that initial meeting, Jacob and I connected on social media many months later, and after stalking each other’s pictures and noticing we did like a lot of the same things, we went out for the first time. I honestly didn’t know if he was trying to network with me or date me. But my dad was right, he is a “very nice young man.”
Q: Tell us about the proposal.
A: The proposal was very low-key – he asked me to dinner on a random Tuesday, and we went back and forth about whose house we should meet at, eventually settling on his. I got off work late and walked through his front door, and he was down on one knee.
Q: What part of the wedding day are you most looking forward to?
A: I’m most looking forward to having everyone I love in the same place at the same time.
