Liza Quinn & Thomas Christy

T

he proposal may have started out seemingly crazy—kids were running all around the restaurant for its weekly “Kids’ Night”—but it involved pizza, and that’s really all that mattered. Thomas Christy and Liza Quinn enjoyed their first date at this very pizza place, but with all the chaos, Thomas decided a proposal at his soon-to-be fiancé’s apartment complex courtyard would be more appropriate, and asked Liza to marry him by the fire pit where they enjoyed many nights during their year-long courtship. Soon after, the bride was walking in her Monique Lhuillier gown with a handmade off-the-shoulder lace bolero to meet her husband at the alter in Westminster Presbyterian Church in Greenville. Following the classic service, the newlyweds met their guests at the Poinsett Club for the reception. Complete with a candy buffet table to curb Liza’s sweet tooth and a late-night pizza delivery to the dance floor, the night ended exactly how their relationship started. The pair lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, where Liza is a schoolteacher and Thomas works as a paramedic while attending school.
