It’s been a whirlwind few days for Mr. Scott, whose endorsement of former President Donald J. Trump at a New Hampshire rally on Friday renewed talk about his consideration as a running mate, should Mr. Trump win the Republican nomination.
“I’ve been very patient and prayerful, and I’m really excited and somewhat nervous,” Scott told the Washington Post.
Scott said he asked Noce’s parents for permission to marry her two weeks before Christmas. He then spent a whole month planning his proposal. Scott said he had approached her parents about two weeks before Christmas to ask for their blessing. With their approval, he set about planning the proposal. One of his friends rejected an early idea of proposing after a pickleball game, a hobby that both of them enjoy, he said.

He settled on a sunset proposal on Kiawah Island, prompting a long drive Saturday to the frigid beach. He described awkwardly trying to dissuade her from wearing gloves when they walked out on the sand, and positioned someone to take a photograph of the event.
Scott said it was difficult to persuade Noce not to wear gloves on Kiawah Island since the weather was cold. “My joke is as soon as I saw her picture, I figured it out. But the truth is about two weeks into it, I knew there was something very different about her and her faith,” Scott said.
The evangelical politician also captioned the photos with a bible verse from the Book of Proverbs. Politico described Noce as a “Charleston-area interior designer and mother of three” after she appeared with Scott at a November event shortly before the senator suspended his brief bid for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination. Scott said at the time he’d been dating Noce for about a year.
