Amanda and Matt had a sweet engagement session at Drip Coffee and other locations around Columbia, SC.
How did you two meet/start dating?
From the bride: “Tinder for the win! We were both new to the city and where looking for friends online, talked for awhile and decided to go watch a movie. The first date was a bit awkward, or at least I thought so! But we went hiking soon after that and got caught in a rainstorm. We were both smitten after our dance in the waterfall and our mountain-side mud fight.”
Tell me the proposal story!
From the bride: I went to visit Matt in Beligum, he travels a lot for his job as a project engineer for a nuclear welding company, and we spent the first day in Brussels. The next day we did a short day trip to Bruges, one of THE most romantic places in the world. We get there and he is telling me all about the Romeo and Juliet story behind this lake of love there. We walk through the city and I'm in awe just taking tons of photos. The city was really packed that day and I could tell Matt was frustrated but I didn't know why. So at the end of the day, he asks to just sit in the garden by the lake to chill before driving. We walk over and he gets sooooo nervous and it hits me. Like I know what's happening. He starts talking about the day and how much he loves traveling with me..gets down on one knee and I just immediately am down on the ground with him hugging him. I don't think I ever smiled that big in my life, I didn't even look at the ring or answer until h asked a second time. I thought my reaction was enough of an answer but engineers like straight talk! We drove to his hotel in Liege and celebrated with some wine. I found out later, he was frustrated all day because the spits he had planned to ask where all so crowded and he couldn't do it when and where he had planned. But it was perfect. Just me, him, and the lake of love. “[/vc_column_text][vc_masonry_media_grid grid_id=”vc_gid:1511562686683-d2ddc54e-1bae-4″ include=”39575,39576,39577,39578,39579,39580,39581,39582,39583,39584,39585,39586,39587,39588,39589,39590,39591,39592,39593,39594,39595,39596,39597,39598,39599,39600,39601,39602″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3”][vc_column_text]
