In their own words
Q: How did you meet?
A: We met at Waffle House in Irmo after work one night.
Q: When did you know your fiance was “the one”?
Will: When we first met.
Karen: When we first kissed.
Q: Tell us about the proposal.
A: We went to the restaurant where we had our first date three years prior. All our friends and family were there because it was Karen’s 21st birthday. After we sang “happy birthday,” Will was on one knee, and when Karen turned around, she screamed, “OMG!”
Will still fully believes she never actually said “yes.”
Q: What part of the wedding day are you most looking forward to?
Will: Socializing with family, the food, and the honeymoon.
Karen: Being able to share the love with friends and family.
Q: What are your something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue?
A: Something old and borrowed is my grandmother’s pearl necklace and bracelets. My something new is my dress and shoes. My something blue is my earrings.
