It’s official: one of the South’s most adorable couples are tying the knot. We got a peek at their engagement dinner, celebrated at Fisher’s at Orange Beach Marina in Orange Beach, AL (which we named as one of the South’s Best Bars).
The former Alabama quarterback and prospective NFL player told his unsuspecting bride-to-be and former Miss Alabama that they were going to the restaurant for a benefit dinner. The truth is that he had been working with owner Johnny Fisher to plan a dinner for 30 of their friends and family.
The dinner happened after he proposed in private with a ring he designed himself. Prospective grooms, take note!

Johnny Fisher made the golden oysters. Nice touch! Among the items on menu of the four course family-style meal: raw oysters, shrimp and grits, pork cheeks, shaved squash and zucchini salad, fresh amberjack, swordfish, and filet mignon and three desserts, including a Caribbean sweet potato sherbet.
Well done, AJ, and congratulations to you both!
