Kelly Tankersley and William Schubert met through mutual friends while attending Georgia Southern University. She said she knew almost from the beginning what a catch she had.
"It was his personality," she said. "He is fun."
She said they complement each other and are best friends. The two were engaged in a Savannah, Ga., park while walking their dog, she said.
"I was surprised. Very surprised," she said, explaining that she didn't see the proposal coming. She did, however, already know her answer would be yes.
"I knew that he was the only person for me," Mrs. Schubert said. "We're excited about starting our life together."
The couple exchanged vows Saturday at Kiokee Baptist Church in Appling.
