Carey and Brendan met on Daniel Island, South Carolina after Carey had just moved there. She took up a serving job at the Daniel Island Grille where Brendan has been working for the past year. Carey knew she was falling in love with Brendan because she became her “true self” when she was around him.
“He makes me smile every day and I cannot imagine my life without him. As corny as it sounds, it's true!”
Brendan could see in that smile how much Carey loved him and knew she was the one. He planned a very romantic proposal beginning with kayaking on the river at Middleton Place, a gorgeous garden and plantation in Charleston, South Carolina. Brendan then took Carey on a walk through the gardens and, under a big oak tree overlooking the river, said: "Carey Talbott VanWormer, will you marry me? Because I know I want to marry you." I mean, does that make you swoon or what?! Its no wonder Carey was nodding and crying before she could get out a “yes!”
It’s a dream come true for Carey to get married in Williamsburg and she and Brendan are excited to share this time with their friends and family. They can’t wait to make this promise to each other and continue to build their lives together with their adorable dog, Lacey Lulu.
