About the bride-to-be!

“I am currently a student pharmacist at the Appalachian College of Pharmacy. I will graduate with my PharmD degree on May 2, 2020. I enjoy spending time with family, traveling, and of course…chocolate!”

About her guy!

“Daniel is a Doctor of Pharmacy and is currently employed at an independent community pharmacy. He is very active and loves all things sports-related. Almost forgot, Daniel is obsessed with Diet Dr. Pepper!” 

How did you meet?

“First comes school, then comes marriage! We first crossed paths during our studies at the Appalachian College of Pharmacy. After some casual small talk, numbers were exchanged and a first date took place the next week. It wasn’t long before our friendly study sessions became weekly pizza and Netflix dates. And the rest was history!”

Tell us about the proposal! 

“The Biltmore Estate is one of our favorite places to visit! So we planned a weekend getaway and drove to Asheville, NC. It was beyond crowded when we arrived at the Biltmore that Saturday. They were completely sold-out of daytime tickets so I was distraught and tried to leave the estate; however, Daniel had a different plan. Little did I know, he had been planning a surprise proposal for months! Leaving was not an option. We made our way towards the house but Daniel changed route towards the Lagoon. He kept stalling and I kept trying to rush our walk. As we reached the Lagoon, there was a photographer taking pictures of the water. I grabbed Daniel’s hand and said, “Oh no we need to get out of this photographers way!” Daniel just gave me a little grin and a kiss on the forehead. Next thing I knew, he was down on one knee. He asked, and I said ‘oh my gosh, yes!’”
