David and Olivia met in grad school at Wake Forest University in 2015. After graduation, Olivia moved to Charleston and David to Charlotte, but continued to stay in touch. Olivia later moved to Charlotte in 2018, and they were soon spending everyday together. Fast forward two years later to March 25, the two went on one last picnic date before the city enforced the stay-at-home order due to COVID-19-- and David dropped to one knee. They have plans to get married May 22, 2021, at First United Methodist Church.
