When we met Meghan and Brandon last year, we immediately felt such a connection! We have so much in common! And we met before we were engaged, so now we can add another thing to our list of commonalities: Christmas Proposal!
On one fateful cold January day at VCU, Meghan and her sorority sisters were walking to a party. Brandon happened to be walking on the same street and began talking with the girls. They immediately hit it off and invited him to attend the party with him. After dancing a couple of times together, Brandon asked Meghan for her number. Though she gave it to him, she did not text him back, because Meghan was not interested in relationships at the time. But, apparently fate did not agree with her decision, and their paths crossed again through a mutual friend. They began spending more time together and made it official on May 5, 2012! “He always tells me he loved me from the moment he met me that January evening and knew he wanted to be with me. It just took a little bit of fate to bring us back together and we have been together ever since.”
Choosing a favorite date night can be super hard, especially for all the amazing adventures Meghan and Brandon have been on! They love to cook and trying new recipes. A date night at home where they find a new recipe, go to the grocery store together, and then prepare it, is one of their favorite date nights-in. But for their date nights-out, Meghan and Brandon travel, and they travel often! They have been cross country, as well as out of the country together! Incorporate different world cultures into the foods they cook and travel adventures they take. “Each date night we have is never really the same and I personally love how even though it could be like our millionth date, we are still experiencing something new together and growing closer together through sharing that mutual experience and falling deeper in love each and every day.”
Christmas Eve 2015, Meghan gifted Brandon a “Love Soundtrack,” a cd filled with their favorite songs. On Christmas Day, while traveling to his mother’s house, they were enjoying the music and pulled into the driveway as “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” began playing. Though Meghan had no idea what was going to happen next, this song was the perfect Segway to Brandon’s surprise proposal! As Meghan was collecting the presents under the tree, Brandon and his sister ran upstairs for a quick second. When he returned, he pulled a handwritten letter out of the tree. Brandon read it out loud for Meghan and ended by reaching for the ring box under the tree! Through tears of joy, Meghan, of course, said “yes!” Brandon’s sister had hidden in a doorway and recorded their intimate proposal!
These two will be tying the knot at Brandy Hill Farm in October! Meghan describes their wedding as a “Dream Come True!” It will be an elegant, southern, and very memorable day!
