After matching on Bumble, Summerville native Taylor met Charlestonian Drayton, and the two enjoyed a two-year courtship filled with baseball games and dinner dates at favorite spots like Leon’s Oyster Shop and Saltwater Cowboys. On Christmas Day 2020, Drayton proposed in front of the tree while the two were celebrating the holidays with family. Their wedding and reception were held at the Cotton Dock at Boone Hall, complete with a cocktail hour on the oyster tabby. Inside, guests were surprised by a special appearance from University of South Carolina mascot, Cocky, before sending off the newlyweds with a sparkler exit.
