We waited a while to actually go on a date after getting to know each other over the phone. We both have busy schedules so Chuck planned a lot in one day to make up for all the dates we might have missed. He took me to the Zoo to see the butterflies which are my favorite. Then we went on a tour of an old mansion, went to dinner at a nice Italian restaurant. Then we went to do painting with a twist and went to a bed and breakfast in an old Victorian house. Then we went to the planetarium.
When he proposed it was quite the surprise. I worked all day and he convinced me we had to drive back to his dad's house a few hours away to fix the sump pump and plant a tree in memory of his dad. We were digging a hole to plant the tree and we hit a box which I was convinced was his childhood time capsule. However it wasn't, it had old money in it and an odd shaped ball that turned out to have a ring in it.
We decided to get married in the Smoky Mountains becuase we love the area and have vacationed there. We like the mountains and how peaceful it is. Our wedding day was beautiful, sunny, 84 degrees but not hot. You could see all of the rolling mountains and it was breathtaking in Cade's Cove.
