Grant and Sarah Parker met as kids in middle school and started dating during their senior year at T.L. Hanna High School in Anderson. They pursued their degrees together at Clemson University, but after graduation the couple resorted to dating long-distance, as Sarah Parker went to Charleston and Grant was back in Anderson. When Grant asked Sarah Parker to come home one weekend, it was nothing out of the ordinary. Neither was him asking her to dress up for a nice dinner, because they had been talking about a date night for a while. On their way to dinner, Grant claimed to have forgotten his wallet, a ruse that took them to the field across from his parents’ house, where they had shared many special moments throughout the years. Grant led Sarah Parker out to the field and handed her a letter ending with that all-important question. Through tears, she told him “yes,” and they celebrated with many friends and family that evening. Their wedding took place at the Bleckley Inn, where they shared their special day with the people they loved most. The couple now resides in Columbia. Grant is currently in medical school, and Sarah Parker works as a school counselor.
