After meeting on a college party dance floor in 2010, Timothy couldn’t wait to text Ireana the next day. The two agreed to a first date seeing holiday lights in Charleston, followed by dinner and a movie. After eight years of travel adventures and countless date nights, Timothy surprised Ireana with a proposal at The Battery, surrounded by family. Although the pandemic reduced the couple’s guest list and changed the venue, Ireana and Timothy celebrated with a ceremony at St. Luke’s Chapel in Charleston followed by a reception at Cypress Hall.
