The most wonderful day of my life so far has just happened. On Saturday November the fifteenth, my love Brandon Allen Scott asked me to marry him...and I said YES!!! What a romantic, beautiful, and perfect in every way surprise it was!! And here's how the event unfolded...
It happened at the Brick Pond in North Augusta South Carolina, a lovely place with a board walk over the water where Brandon and I had spent many a happy Sunday afternoon together with family or friends. I was looking around reminiscing, when the van suddenly stopped. Mama turned and looked at me and said, "Abigail, you need to get out. This is for you.."
I was a little unsure of what was going on.. until I stepped out. I heard music... a string quartet was playing on the pavilion in the distance. Then I knew...
There was a table before me with a letter from him written to me... which told me the music was playing just for me (with many other sweet things!! <3), and instructed me to walk forward and then to the right and my surprise eagerly awaited me...
It was the longest walk of my life!!! Tears of joy and shock were steadily running down my face. I finally reached the pavilion. There he was.
The moment I had always dreamed of...and it was WAY more special then I could have ever imagined!
I said YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Brandon read 1 Corinthians 13 with me... a beautiful picture of true love. <3
The family came to congratulate my FIANCE and I :)
Brandon asked my Daddy to say a prayer of blessing over us and our future together!! It was such a special moment. <3
She said YES! ;D
It was so wonderful to have Brandon's mother and my family there to share in the joy.
There were many, MANY happy and joyful tears of love shed that day :)))
We went to Bonefish Grille to celebrate :))
"Come fall in Love" <333
And...they had a surprise party at the house for us (the engaged couple!!!!) afterwards!!
Look at this ADORABLE ring cake Mama made!!!
Yes, it was the absolute most perfect day filled with many PERFECT moments. And through our entire relationship... how God brought us together...how He showed Himself in every point of our journey, Brandon constantly leads me to Jesus, prays with me, laughs with me until we cannot laugh any longer, and so tenderly desires to know my heart. At every step he has sought the guidance of The LORD and my parents. God has done a marvelous work in and through us that is not yet complete!! And this day I am overflowing with joy. I said YES to marry my bestest friend, and YES to what God has for our future.
I LOVE YOU Brandon Allen, and everything you are.
