Scary Halloween Wedding: Erin & Eric in Myrtle Beach, SC

A mutual appreciation of vintage fashion brought together Erin Adams, a vintage clothing reseller, and Eric Hall, an associate professor of costume design. They met at a festival where Erin had a booth set up to promote her business, and they instantly hit it off. Eric later visited Erin's store; he didn't make a purchase, but he did return the following day to ask her out on a date. "I was out to lunch and had closed the store for an hour. He wrote a note on the back of his business card and tucked it into the shop's door. It read, 'E- stopped by for some CIA envelopes... would you like to have dinner or drinks some time?" -E."

Eric popped the question in January before the pair attended a fundraiser together. Erin was running late and still getting ready when he arrived to pick her up. "As I was putting on my finishing touches, he casually asked if that was the jewelry I was planning on wearing. Confused, I turned around and found him down on one knee on my bedroom floor. He asked, and I said yes!"
