Tierra Plenty McCants and Adam Wesley McCants chance encounter, at their place of employment, in the elevator of a local bank's corporate office, was the beginning of their "journey of lifelong bliss leading to husband and wife."
Their love for one another grew over time, allowing both equal space to display their personalities that brings balance to one another's lives. Those lives are spent enjoying shared experiences at new eateries, long walks in the park on a beautiful day, singing purposefully off-key, traveling, attending church together and cozying up to watch their favorite television shows.
Tierra expressed openly that "Adam was the difference I had been expecting for a long time. When all the other guys were 'the same', he was a refreshing and welcomed-different. I knew our friendship would endure and blossom into marriage on our third date when Adam told me that he knew he was created to be a husband and father. From then on, I knew he was the one!"
"He's aware of me. He cares about my thoughts, he tries to make me laugh, and he asks about my day. When I'm too quiet he wants to be sure that nothing is wrong, and when things are wrong he breaks the silence to make them right. These things, among many, make him very special to me."
Although Tierra was expecting a proposal, "the actual day was a surprise." Adam, on the other hand, had set out on a personal mission to ask the "Big Ask" before Thanksgiving in an effort to celebrate the moment with all of their family members and close friends.
So, on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, without any set plans on how they were to spend the holiday and Tierra expecting to spend Thanksgiving Day with her family, Adam began to set his proposal plans in motion. After delaying their lunch date to 2:00 p.m. that evening, Adam asks, "Will you do me a favor? Will you wear this blindfold? I have a surprise. Just trust me!"
Tierra immediately agreed and complied with Adam's request. The two set out to the location. Tierra was filled with excitement and desperately trying to guess where the trip would take them. "Little did I know we were headed to the area where we had our first date, Surin West in 5 Points South."
While in the car, "Adam turns off the music... He begins to play an audio conversation of some individuals talking. I began to recognize the voices as Adam with my parents. Then I began to recognize the nature of their conversation. Adam had driven to Huntsville and officially asked my parents for my hand in marriage. He had his brother record the entire exchange. I immediately gasped and began to cry."
Upon arriving at their destination, "Adam initiated a guessing game where he gave me clues, and I had to guess what place...he was describing that was sentimental to us. The clues described one place being where we met (the bank), where we had our first serious conversation (my old apartment), and where we had our first date (Surin)." Once he removed the blindfold, the two reflected on their relationship. Blindfolded again, Tierra was led to the Storyteller Fountain, surrounded by close friends and family. "He led me to the front of the fountain and removed the blindfold. I was immediately shocked to see everyone and overcome with joy as Adam began to explain how important I was to him, and eventually got on one knew and proposed!
