Brooks was planning on proposing a few weeks later, but after he got the ring, he simply couldn't wait. Brooks was on the way to her parents' lake house to meet her for the weekend. Both sets of parents agreed that he should go ahead and give it to her then!
He picked up a nice bottle of champagne and met her there, went down to the dock for a cocktail at sunset, and acted like he was going to take a picture of them. He secretly had the camera on video and surprised her by proposing! After she said yes, they popped the champagne and celebrated together!
Brooks and Claire are getting married at their church, Myers Park Methodist, in Charlotte, NC on June 5, 2021!
