When life throws you a curve ball…
Jeremy & Kalah were set to be married at the Carillon Meeting House in Carillon Beach on October 14, 2018 – Just 4 days after Hurricane Michael hit our Florida Emerald Coast. With the impending storm and the damage it caused, the wedding was moved further west to Bellamy of 30A and remained on the same day.
We asked Jeremy and Kalah to tell us their story:
How did you two meet?
We met on Bumble of all places 🙂 It still blows my mind that we found each other online. He is everything I hoped and prayed for in a husband!
How did he propose?
I was at the beach with my family on vacation. I had asked Jeremy to come but due to vacation days and an upcoming trip planned for him he wasn’t able to come. I was bummed to say the least. It was a gloomy day because the tropical storm was making it’s way to where we were staying. I think most of us stayed inside that day because the weather was so gross. That night we all went to dinner. The place we went was AWFUL! When we got back to the house that night I was headed upstairs and the front door opened and my mom said, “Look who is here to see you!” I was in shock!!!! Jeremy had just walked through the door! He was not supposed to be here. I teased him about messing up our numbers for game night that was about to start! He and I headed upstairs to put his things away. When we got upstairs we hugged and I could feel his heart beating out of his chest. He went to grab something out of his backpack and before I knew it he was down on one knee asking me to marry him! I couldn’t believe it was happening! I of course said yes and asked him a million questions about how all of it came to be. His original plans included proposing on the beach, meeting me in the local bookstore, and several other grand plans. Unfortunately, the tropical storm led to a different proposal! It was perfect and when we walked downstairs his parents were waiting for us along with my family. It was so special to be able to celebrate with both of them right after it happened!
Why did you choose 30a?
He proposed in Rosemary and we wanted something small. We both love the beach and it felt like the perfect place to start our life together!
