Brides perspective:

“Little background story-Brendan and I have been together for 5 years. Three of those years we were long distance with me living in Charleston, SC and him living here in Charlotte NC. I relocated to my hometown Charlotte after being gone for 11 years in April 2017. I was excited to finally start my life with Brendan.

As the holiday season approached, we thought it would be a good idea to start some traditions of our own. We decided we would go to a Christmas tree farm and cut down our very own tree. It was around 8am on a chilly November Saturday morning. We had spent the week with my family in Weddington, NC celebrating Thanksgiving and my 30th birthday. I awoke to see my “now” fiance saying “Get up and get ready. The tree farm opens at 9.” Per usual, I did not want to get out of my warm bed and asked if we could go later in the day. Brendan emphasized that he wanted to be there when they opened so we could have our pick of all the trees. I rolled out of bed, put on my Darth Vader sweatshirt, rainboots, and a Carolina Panthers beanie.

Shortly thereafter, we arrived at Penland Christmas Tree Farm in Fort Mill, SC. After walking around in search of our perfect tree, I finally found the one I wanted. Brendan asked a young couple that was chasing around their toddler to take a picture of us with our very first Christmas tree. He crouched down to saw the trunk when he asked if I would come to the other side to hold the tree.

To my surprise, he had dropped the axe and was on one knee, holding the most beautiful ring accompanied with the words “Will you marry me?” I was completely shocked, along with the couple taking the photos. Neither of us had any idea he was going to propose. I couldn’t control my excitement or the look of shock on my face. So many emotions were rushing through me, the one of him making me the happiest girl in the world. Crying, laughing, screaming….I can’t put that feeling into words. I am going to marry the man of my dreams.”
