The Proposal: Iris met Grant, a young Naval Aviator, in 2008 at her family’s home on Smith Lake when her dad was flying in an airshow. The two remained friends over the years, even when Grant was moved to Washington and Iris was attending The University of Alabama. On a return trip to Smith Lake years later, the two realized their love for each other. In July 2013, Grant proposed by taking Iris on a flight in her grandfather’s Cessna 172 over Smith Lake. He flew over a dock where there was a banner that said, “Will you marry me?”
