Brittany Brooks & Keith Griffin, Jr.
December 23, 2013, is a day I will never forget! I woke up that morning and got ready for what I thought was going to be a “girls’ day.” We were going to get our nails done and go out for lunch. However, after returning to the car after getting our nails done, I found a note that had been left for me. The note was from Keith! He explained to me that I would be going on a scavenger hunt around Charlotte. There would be clues that would lead me to different locations that were significant to our relationship. At each location there was a video message from him, providing me with the next clue! As I went to my last location, Keith’s video explained to me that he did not have any more clues for me but that my friends knew where to take me next. I was then blindfolded and taken on what felt to be the longest car ride of my life. When we finally arrived at the “surprise location” my friends helped me out of the car and un-blindfolded me. When I opened my eyes, I saw a staircase lined with candles and rose petals. At the top of the hill Keith was waiting for me. I immediately started crying as I walked to the top and saw him get down on one knee. After saying yes to the love of my life, I found out that he had an entire engagement party planned for us where all of our friends and family were waiting for us. Needless to say, it was a day neither of us will ever forget!-As told by Brittany
Brittany and Keith were married May 23, 2014.
