As told by Angus:
On my 23rd birthday, we went out to dinner at the Melting Pot to celebrate. Even though the restaurant was really hot, I refused to take my jacket off, secretly fearing something would fall out of the pocket. After dinner, I wanted to go to Fall’s Park in downtown Greenville, SC, to walk on the bridge where I had asked Allison to be my girlfriend in college. It started to rain, but I still insisted that we walk. We opened our umbrella and tried to ignore all the people walking by. Finally, I worked up the nerve to ask her to dance with me the way we had done at that same spot in college. I spun her, and when she turned around, I was down on one knee. She was so stunned, she didn’t even hear the question! After she said yes, we huddled together under the umbrella, admiring the ring she’ll get to wear forever.
Allison and Angus will be married July 13, 2013.
