Engaged: Ali and Avery

Ali and Avery will be getting married on New Years Day at the Rice Mill in Downtown Charleston. They are getting married on the easiest day to remember 1-1-11Avery has no excuse for forgetting their anniversary! It also seems like the perfect day to get married as it's the start of a fresh new year. The two are not only beginning new lives together but are both starting new careers. Avery will be attending Harvard Law School this fall while Ali is starting her doctorate at Tufts University.

The couple wanted to get married  in Charleston as Ali grew up here and it was the setting of the couples engagement. Avery planned one of the sweetest and well thought out engagements we have ever heard of. As a surprise he bought plane tickets to Charleston for a long weekend. He asked Hominy Grill to pack a picnic for the two of them and Ali's parents brought the picnic to the airport and left it in a waiting car. When the plane landed Avery whisked Ali off to Sullivan's Island. As the sun set and Ali enjoyed her delicious picnic of shrimp and grits on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Avery got down on one knee and proposed! How can a girl say no to a proposal like that!
