Shelby and Sam tied the knot during their Westshore Yacht Club wedding in Tampa, Florida. A beautiful overlook of the gorgeous yachts, the two said “I do” among their friends and family!
Sam was going to propose on our 9 year anniversary, but true Sam fashion did not have the ring on time! But there was a sweet reason why! He had chosen to have the ring engraved, but on the day of our anniversary, it wasn’t ready.
So the next weekend, November 1, 2019 we were in Jacksonville for our friends wedding. He had planned to take Shelby to dinner for making up for a “low-key” prior anniversary weekend. Well Shelby messed up the dinner plans, sent her steak back and got another glass of wine, instead of go to the rooftop bar with Sam, where he had chosen to propose. He had a cake, photographer and champagne waiting, too! So instead, we went to another random rooftop bar where a group of frat guys were taking shots at the bar… Sam was so nervous and ready to ask the big question. So Sam saw fireworks off in the distance, and figured it was the time.
He got down on one knee, and Shelby blacked out. She remembers saying “no” repeatedly out of shock, and eventually realized what she was saying. She of course said “yes”!
