Bee + Becca {engagement :: Montgomery, Ala.}

How did you two meet?

Becca: "I never recall not knowing Bee! ;) Growing up together in school, church and supper club definitely built a foundation of friendship that I have many funny memories from."

Bee: "I wish we could remember actually 'meeting' each other, but truth is, we've never not known each other. Attending school together at Trinity and church together at Frazer provided a strong basis for our friendship. We ultimately became good friends during junior high and high school, and it's funny now to look back together as a couple on shared experiences and memories from our lives pre-dating/engaged. Given that, the question that's more fun/funny for both of us to answer is, 'When did you first become interested in the other person...?'

How did Bee propose?

Bee: "I wanted the proposal to be special, but I couldn't figure out exactly how I wanted to do it. When it was suggested by one of my closest friends that I fly to NYC and surprise her while she was there on a girls trip with her sister and mother, I knew that was the ticket! I booked my flight, and the planning began for this NYC rookie. Her sister, Rachel, and brother in-law, Chase, definitely helped me think through various details and their VERY detailed NYC schedule-- which included pictures in Central Park before their dinner on Monday, April 8th. I flew up to NYC that morning, Ubered to my hotel, got ready and headed to Central Park. It was a surreal feeling to be in Central Park waiting on your future wife to show up on the Gapstow Bridge so you can surprise her and ask her to marry you. While they were 'taking pictures,' I came onto the bridge, said her name, gave a stunned Becca a huge hug, and then got down on one knee!"

Becca: "He surprised me in Central Park in NYC! I was on a girls trip with my mom and sister and we were "taking photos" before sunset on the ? bridge. I heard my name, turned around, and there Bee was! Instant tears. The sweetest moment I'll cherish forever :)"

What are some things you two enjoy doing together?
Becca: "What do we not enjoy doing together?! Ha! Simple errands or to-dos are the most fun with Bee-- but our favorite things to enjoy together are live music (especially jazz or blues), road trips, exploring new cities and restaurants together, the farm (especially with our new little pup, Mayor) cooking and hosting friends, frequenting Vintage Cafe too much and shopping at Costco- (lol --free samples!)

Bee: "We enjoy pretty much everything together, but our favorites are: live music (shows at Standard Deluxe in Waverly, blues at Capitol Oyster Bar, Jazz from Henry Pugh in the Blue Room, etc.), sharing good food/drinks at local favorites in MGM and new spots in various cities we're visiting, traveling, cooking, hosting people, the farm, and dreaming together about the future.
