Tripp Weaver & Leigh Hatcher

December 26, 2014


The engagement ring may have been a little muddied, but Tripp Weaver’s intentions were crystal clear when he dropped to one knee before Leigh Hatcher at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. The Holy City residents—who have been dating since they were 16—traveled to their hometown of Asheville to reunite with family and friends over the holidays. While there, they visited the Biltmore Estate to celebrate Tripp’s mother’s birthday—a perfect place, Tripp decided, for another happy happening. Prompted by his mom, Tripp and Leigh struck a pose in front of the Biltmore for a quick snapshot. While Leigh was smiling at the camera, Tripp reached into his pocket, pulled out a diamond ring, and bent to one knee. “I was in shock!” says Leigh of the moment. “It was great to have the whole proposal caught on camera—from him getting down on one knee, to me saying yes, to Tripp dropping the ring in the mud while trying to put it on my finger! I couldn’t have asked for a better moment.” The couple will wed May 20, 2016, at Alhambra Hall in Mount Pleasant.
