Wedding Date on Aug 21, 2020

Even though Sarah and Davis were in the same scholarship program at UNC Charlotte, they didn’t meet until they happened to sit next to each other at an event in February of 2014. Naturally, Davis spent the entire night teasing her for not remembering formal dinner etiquette (yes, crossing your fork and knife is not how you indicate that you are finished with your meal). As they walked back to their dorms together with a group of friends, Davis took a joke too far, prompting an overdramatic reaction from Sarah where she refused to walk back to the dorms with him. Not to be outdone, he matched her with an equally dramatic apology, bending down on one knee to ask for forgiveness. It was on that night that he began to fall for her, but she was unavailable. For a year and a half, he waited for her, and in August of 2015, they started dating. Fast forward to their proposal, Sarah had mentioned that her perfect proposal would be on top of a mountain, but, of course, not in hiking clothes. As Davis was thinking through ideas for the proposal, he also remembered that an item on her bucket list was to visit all of the national parks. So, for November of 2018, he planned a trip to Shenandoah National Park. For the entire car ride there, he was silent. The first day of hiking, silent. As they returned to their hotel that afternoon, Davis slipped outside after getting dressed for their dinner that night. This wasn’t just any hotel. Davis had picked this one in particular because it was in the middle of the park, practically on a mountain, and had spectacular views. In the meantime, Sarah dressed, oblivious to the fact that Davis was outside arguing with a hotel employee to hold off for just ten minutes from loudly leaf-blowing the property. When she finally emerged, she found him in the middle of a setup for an outdoor wedding that happened to be taking place that night, right where the bride and groom would be standing. She approached, and for the second time, he bent down on one knee and recited a speech that he had been practicing endlessly during the car ride and the hike. As he finished, he slid a box from his pocket, opened it, and said the words, “Will you marry me?”, to which she replied, “The ring is upside down...but, yes.” As for their vow video, Sarah + Davis had to change their plans because of COVID and wanted something to look forward to. Just the two of them with personal vows (since they couldn't share personal vows in their Catholic Church ceremony). So a month or two before their wedding, they exchanged vows at sunrise on the top of a mountain. Then, when they got married, they shared the video on a huge blow-up screen and served popcorn and champagne to their guests.
