On May 20, 2022 we got engaged on the rooftop terrace at Restoration Hardware in Chicago. Though some time has passed since our engagement we haven't yet posted it on here! In fact, we are 1 month and 2 weeks away from the big day and the excitement is REAL.
Gannan and I met at an entrepreneurial business program in 2020 and worked together as a 2 man team to rebrand and market a run-down baptist bible camp into a thriving event venue in the highlands of South Carolina. Both of us are originally from the North, so to begin getting settled in the upstate of South Carolina with the snakes and the boars and the heat is a bit of an adjustment for us!
About 5 months after meeting for the first time, we began to start dating and it didn't take long (3 months to be exact) to know that this was the person God had intended to be our playmate, partner, and supporter for the rest our lives. We spent over a year in long distance after that, seeing each other approximately every 6-8 weeks when we could but we are very thankful to finally put long distance behind us as of August 6, 2022.
We have been engaged for 4 months and in that time frame have been able to secure housing, and education, jobs, and have planned the best day ever. We are extremely grateful and are so excited to embark on this life journey together and all the ups and downs that come with it.
45 days to go! :)
