In her own words
Q: How did you meet?
A: Met at a bar at Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach through mutual friends. He won me over with his charm and dance moves.
Q: When did you know your fiance was “the one”?
A: I knew he was the one when I was able to be myself around him, and whenever we were apart, I felt as if I was missing a part of me.
Q: Tell us about the proposal.
A: Justin told me we were going to eat lunch with my family in downtown Charleston. We arrived downtown, and he suggested we walk to the pineapple fountain before going to eat lunch. When we arrived at the pineapple, I was distracted by some ladies doing yoga. I looked away, and as soon as I did, he was down on his knee. Getting straight to the point, he asked me to marry him. All I could ask was, “Are you serious?!” After reality hit, I said yes! His family and my family came running from every direction toward us with open arms and tears of joy. We enjoyed a nice lunch with our families, followed by a romantic dinner at the Sanctuary at Kiawah Island.
