Cassandra and Joseph met by chance and stayed together by choice.  They dated for three years and lived together for one a year before Joseph proposed.   Marriage was always the topic of discussion so Cassandra knew that it would eventually happen.  They tied the knot on August 11th, which is significant because it is feast day of St. Clare, a saint that was very devout and committed.   Read to find out how they met, details on the proposal and then stick around to view all of the beautiful images by Amanda Moss Photography!

The Meeting

He (Joseph) was working security at Rooftop 210. I was trying to hook my friend up with a guy that worked there and met Joe in doing so. The other couple didn’t work out so great (or at all) but we did!   I approached him! I introduced myself to him the first night. Two nights later, I saw him again and talked his ear off for an hour.   I finally asked him if he was going to ask for my number or not. He handed me his phone so I could put my number in and text me the next day to ask me on a date.  He picked me up and took my to Texas Roadhouse.  I ask a lot of questions up front, so I knew right away (that he was the one). He thought I was slightly crazy so he may have been a little skeptical.

The Proposal

He took me to a winery/vineyard to celebrate our three year anniversary. We took a tour and then had a private tasting with wine and chocolate. Afterwards, we walked through the vineyard. It was fairly warm that day and his heart was racing! I thought he was hot and worried he was going to die! He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I thought he was joking until I felt the ring in his hand. We drove back to Charlotte where he had all of our family and close friends gathered to celebrate.
