Meet Clare and Wallace.
This awesome couple not only had their first date at Dram & Draught but also recently took their engagement pictures here! Of course, we had to find out a little more about them and how this all came to be so we worked with their photographer, Johanna Dye, to do a little Q&A with the couple to see how they found love at Dram & Draught.
Q. How did you meet?
A. We actually met on Hinge, a dating app…we both had something about bourbon in our profiles, so my opening line was ‘Favorite bourbon?’ We decided to have our first date at Dram and Draught after I asked if he’d ever been there (he said he hadn’t, so I was so excited to introduce him to this great bourbon bar–too bad he had totally been to bar’s opening night. Our relationship is based on a lie! 😉)
Q. What was the first thing you noticed about him?
A. His patience. I’m constantly doing embarrassing stuff, on our first date I immediately started talking to strangers at the bar and he just laughed and pretended like I wasn’t a total weirdo.
Q. When did you know that he was “the one”?
A. The day after Thanksgiving of 2016, we’d been casually dating a little over a month, we hadn’t even made it official. He was hosting a second Thanksgiving for his dad’s side of the family and invited me over for it. I was nervous and he immediately made me feel comfortable by balancing my needs with the responsibilities of hosting. He let me jump in and help with everything to work out my nerves. I felt so supported and had the best day celebrating with his family. By the end of the night, I was so overwhelmed by the fact that I knew he was ‘the one’ that I may or may not have cried and made up an excuse to leave early (I didn’t do well with feelings back then).
Congratulations and cheers to the happy couple!
