Updated: May 19, 2019

Full names:Rheisa Burke & Brandon Wright 

Occupations: Certified Athletic Trainer & Entrepreneur/Teacher

A High School Love Story

It was the summer of 2013. Rheisa had recently begun working as an athletic trainer for the same high school that Brandon was a football coach. Due to their roles, they frequently crossed each other’s paths, although they never spoke to one another.One day after practice, Brandon approached Rheisa and complimented her hair. Rheisa gave him a blank stare, said “thank you,” and walked away. Un-phased by her reaction, Brandon continued in his attempts to start conversations with her. Rheisa remained cordial, but continued to ignore him.

A few week’s later, while walking in the school’s hallway, the two actually had a real conversation. The sun’s glare was directly on Brandon which caused Rheisa to look at him in a different light, realizing his charm and handsome looks. They exchanged numbers and spoke on the phone for hours that very night. They went on their first date a few week’s later and after that became exclusive. 

The Proposal

It was the morning before Valentine’s Day , we decided to celebrate a day early due to our conflicting work schedules. While getting ready at home, Brandon surprised Rheisa with gifts. In the midst of opening her gifts, Brandon was down on one knee and popped the question. 

How has the wedding planning been thus far? Any advice that you would give to couples? 

The wedding planning has had its up and downs our advice is to work together and take at least a day out of the week to spend together away from planning.
