How they met: Amanda and I first met at the Nashville Edgehill Coffee Shop. As we sipped on tea and coffee, she started by telling me how they met and finished with how he proposed. T.J. and Amanda's epic love story began on eHarmony. Amanda had consulted her parents on what types of qualities they thought would be complementary to her personality, and T.J. met the primary criteria! He loved the Lord and it was clear that he was passionate about music and using his creativity; equally driven as her, but in a different area. T.J. thought Amanda was cute and admired her walk with the Lord, her taste in books. The Proposal: Amanda, having had a full day of work and dinner with a friend, was excited to go home and call it a night. T.J. having gotten out of class early that Tuesday decided it was the perfect time for a spontaneous proposal. When Amanda left dinner with her friend, T.J. texted her the first clue for a scavenger hunt. At this point, Amanda knew T.J. was going to propose because he had previously mentioned that his plan for a proposal was a scavenger hunt (which he had forgotten!). Amanda quickly followed the clues to the Starbucks where they first met, to the movie theater where they decided to officially be a couple, and then to the front of the church where they currently attend. At the church, the clue asked Amanda to knock on the church door, close her eyes and count to 20. At the end of 20, Amanda turned around and T.J. was down on his knee. Amanda said, "Yes!"
