Lucky for us, Ashlie Moncrief was their to captured every romantic moment! Continue reading to see how Merritt remembers the special day.
"Chris and I had both taken our boards the day before the proposal, so I had no idea that I could be getting engaged the next day. Chris had taken his test in Atlanta and me in Savannah the day so he had to drive back down to Savannah. It was a Thursday and normally we go to bingo at The Savannah Golf Club with my family on Thursday nights. He told me he wanted to pick me up early so he could look at sunglasses at the Pro Shop. So we went early and he looked at sunglasses for all of 2 seconds before he decided he didn’t like anything. Then he said for us to go walk outside since we had some spare time. Of course, I replied that it was too hot but he insisted, so I said "ok". I still had no idea what was going on at this point, then he stops me and turns around and then I realize "ohhhhh this is happening like now!" I have no idea what he said or what I said but I said yes!" - Merritt, Bride-to-be
