OUR STORY

Charles Manley
Amanda Mellen
So this is written in my (Charles) narrative because I was forced to write this - actually I just suck at writing in the third person so here goes.

Amanda and I met on November 28th, 2015 (Yes, I remember this date because I don't think I had been that scared of an event since I accepted the President's Award at graduation). We both used a website called e-Harmony. My co-worker, Kimberly, and Amanda's best friend and matron of honor, Danika Jinks, both coerced us into getting onto e-Harmony to find someone. Well, I saw Amanda's profile and when I saw Disney, I thought at least she likes the same movies as I do. Little did I know at the time, she isn't just a Disney fan, she is a Disney princess. When I met her for the first time, I felt scared to death and followed her best friend's lead as much as she did. When I called her back and I got that second date, I had made up my mind, I had to go all out. We went to the Tower of Americas, explored the Riverwalk, went to Ripley's and the rest was history. She is undoubtedly the most beautiful woman I have ever met in my life, am so blessed to have her by my side and well... you'll have to RSVP to hear the rest of those details because the rest is for the reception. Neener neener!

We got engaged February 8, 2017, at Dancing With The Stars LIVE! at Bass Concert Hall in Austin, TX. I proposed to her during the intermission of the performance in front of the audience. We also got to meet a lot of the cool professionals.
