From Carleigh and Tony:
We first met at Pepperdine University. Our dorms were right next to one another, but it wasn’t until after college that we started dating. Tony had left Pepperdine to go to UC Irvine after Freshman year. Both growing up in the South Bay, we had a lot of mutual friends. Summer of 2011 we kept running into one another and then one night Tony sent me a text to hangout and the rest is history!
We have always been there for one another through all of the ups and downs. Being able to overcome living so far apart from one another and then having Carleigh move to Tennessee allowed us to gain such great respect for one another. It allowed for our love to grow even stronger.
The proposal happened on November 25, 2015. Tony, Tony’s brother, my best friend (and Maid of Honor) and I went on a bike ride along the strand. Tony’s brother has a boat so we decided that we would all go on a boat ride. Tony’s brother said that he had a friend that had a bigger boat and that he invited us to go on there. As soon as we hit the deck Tony got down on one knee. Tony and my family were all in the cabin watching! I said, “yes”!
We have the most amazing puppy, Presley our English Bull Dog who runs our house. We are best friends who are extremely excited to begin attacking the next chapter in our lives!!
