Brittany and Derek met in college in 2010. Brittany noticed him immediately, but couldn’t work up the courage to talk to him until about a month before class ended. The introduction was finally made in a group setting, and the two ended up texting, which lead to talking, which lead to dating!
Derek attempted to ask Brittany to be his girlfriend over the school radio, but she missed the show! She did hear about the romantic gesture in detail later, and said yes!
Now the proposal was a total surprise. On their 5th year anniversary the two took professional pictures, which is a common thing for the couple! Brittany got her makeup done in downtown Anderson and picked out two different outfits to wear. During the outfit change, Derek asked Brittany if she wanted to open her anniversary gift (a stunning heart necklace!) under which was the engagement ring! Derek got down on one knee outside the car and asked her Brittany to be his wife, she put it straight on her hand. She forgot to say “yes” however, until Derek asked again for an answer!
The couple will be going on a cruise to the Bahamas, the Dominican Republic, and Grand Turk for their honeymoon. What a great adventure for the newlyweds!
Congratulations to the happy couple! We can’t wait to celebrate with you on your big day!
