Just WAIT until you read their Love Story!!!
Brandon and I met at Dano's in Hazleton in August 2015. I was out with my friends for a girls night out and Brandon noticed me from across the room. He approached me and my friends and asked to buy us a few drinks. Of course we said yes LOL. After that he asked if I wanted to dance and I declined. I then gave my number to his friend and he texted me a few hours later that night. From there forward we started hanging out and he officially asked me out in October 2015. On August 24, 2017, Brandon proposed to me on the beach in Myrtle Beach, SC at a hotel called Oceans 22. Earlier that day he and my brother went for a walk and I was in the hotel room trying to sort through our clothes and organize some things and I came across a hard object in Brandon's jean pocket. It felt like a box and I instantly jumped to conclusions so I ran to tell my mom what I felt and that I thought maybe Brandon would propose and how awesome that would be. My mom then said, "well Lindsey, you know Brandon has been traveling a lot this year for his job and I really don't think he had much time to go out and look for a ring." I then kept thinking about this even through dinner that night. After dinner I went shopping with my mom and the guys went back to the hotel room. I kept pondering what was in that jean pocket and I could not focus on anything else. When we got back to the hotel room Brandon and my brother asked if I wanted to take a walk down to the bar which wasn't too far from the hotel we were staying at. I said sure and once we got down onto the beach Brandon took me by the hand and got down on one knee and proposed. After I said yes like a million times I noticed my brother was recording the proposal on his phone and then I noticed my family up on the balcony of the hotel room cheering us on and celebrating. HE HAD IT PLANNED THE WHOLE TIME AND MY FAMILY KNEW the week prior what his intentions were. I later found out he sat down with my parents and brother the week before and asked for their blessing. I then also found out that Brandon went to Philadelphia with his father to a place called the Golden Nugget to have my engagement ring designed. After all this excitement we decided to have a church ceremony at the church where I attended growing up and then to do the reception at Sand Springs as we have been there many other times and really enjoyed the food and layout of the venue. We initially wanted a fall wedding, but then we agreed to do a wedding in the spring as the spring is a beautiful time and everything starts fresh in the spring. Now Brandon and I have been together for almost four years and I am blessed to have him as my other half. We are excited to see what the future has in store for us.
