Chuck planned the perfect first date: a picnic at Lynches River State Park with wine, cheese and little sandwiches. It was here that the two discovered their shared dislike for tomatoes... but the similarities didn't stop there. Both Emily and Chuck grew up on farms, both of their mothers are English teachers and they have many mutual family names. Emily's mother's name is Mary and her sister's Kathleen. Chuck's mother's name is Mary Kathleen and his sister's Emily. How sweet is that?
The smitten couple tried to keep their romance under wraps at work, but it wasn't long before everyone knew! Chuck popped the question on October 15th and the two are anticipating a beautiful wedding at the Dillon church that Emily grew up in followed by a reception in Florence, SC. Their wedding weekend will be a gorgeous combination of classic country chic and Emily's Scottish heritage. We can't wait to celebrate with them on May 1st!
