In her own words
Q: How did you meet?
A: We met through an internet dating website.
Q: When did you know your fiance was “the one”?
A: On a trip to Edisto, we were walking on the beach at night. We stopped to stargazed when Frank asked me to dance with him. I sang while we danced, and I knew he was the one.
Q: Tell us about the proposal.
A: Frank and I love to go fishing. On March 4, 2016, we planned to go fishing but awoke to a very gray, rainy day. So we didn’t go fishing, but later in the day, it cleared up, so we drove out to Clark’s Hill Lake (Lake Thurmond). While standing on a dock and looking out over the water, he proposed.
Q: What part of the wedding day are you most looking forward to?
A: We’re looking forward to just celebrating with all our family and friends.
