As told by Brigitte:Geoff and I are both teachers in the Fort Mill School District. Even though we had known each other since college, it wasn’t until we saw each other at the yearly district-wide meetings, and then ran into each other four times in a month, that I knew I couldn’t tempt fate any longer and send him a Facebook message. We had our first date, and it wasn’t long before we knew something about this relationship was different than others. Later that year, Geoff and I had already scheduled engagement pictures before it was official, so we went to Anne Springs Close Greenway to wander around and pick locations. We sat down on a picnic table behind The Dairy Barn, and Geoff asked if I had everything I would need for the pictures. I quickly told him I was missing something as I held up my ring finger. He changed the topic to what he would wear for the pictures, and I quickly cut the conversation off, not wanting to discuss his attire while I was missing a crucial part of mine. Geoff told me that he had the missing piece of my outfit. I affectionately kicked him, thinking he was trying to aggravate me. At that moment, Geoff pulled the ring box out of his pocket, opened it, and asked me to spend forever with him. In true Brigitte fashion, I responded, “Are you serious?” Finally, when the shock subsided, I agreed! Brigitte and Geoff will be married on March 24, 2012.
