Our Story

Tori and Drew met in Columbia,SC at what was once known as Columbia Athletic Club or as the locals called it CAC. Drew worked at the club as a front desk employee and as a Trainer (this is where tori comes in). Tori, a member of the club decided to sign up for some personal training sessions and was handed to her the guy she would come to love and one day call her husband. Sparks flew and before you knew it the two were inseparable. In the three years leading up to their engagement Tori and Drew spent lots of time just being with each other, playing with patches (tori's dog), hanging with friends, spending time with each other's family's during the holiday's, attending friends/family weddings, and of course catching lots of bouquet's which would eventually come to pay off. On April 8th, 2011 the BIG QUESTION was popped. With the help of Tori's neighbor (Helen Johnson), Tori decided to go for a typical friday afternoon run. Unbeknownst to Tori, Drew was waiting at her house as she would come running down the street with a shiny diamond in a big brown box and a white dog with a t-shirt that read "will you marry my daddy"?. As tori began to run up she saw Drew and patches in the yard. As she got closer, Drew let patches down to deliver the message. Patches was on her A game that day and did just as she was told as Tori picked her up stunned, shocked, a little confused, and of course out of breath. Drew got on one knee and Tori said YES!!! The rest is history!!!! The two are excited and have a date set for March 17th, 2012 and are counting down the days before they will say "I DO!"
