Mary and Will were each other’s first ”match” on match.com, and after just one meeting, they knew it was meant to be. Six months later, the couple was getting ready for an evening out. Will had planned a beach proposal, but couldn’t wait any longer—he asked Mary to be his wife right there in their bedroom. The ceremony and reception were held on the Cotton Dock at Boone Hall Plantation, with Will’s four-year-old daughter as the flower girl. The pair, both native to South Carolina, now live in Mount Pleasant.
