How We Met
We are Alyssa and Devon, we met almost four years ago June 2014 at a grocery store. I am only 5 feet tall so he was helping me reach my favorite cereal box, Cherrios. Just kidding, we totally met on Tinder. We both have very busy schedules and work full time so it left little room for time to bar hop and meet people. I am a Registered Nurse on a labor and delivery unit, and Devon is an audio technician for Fox Sports. I am forever so thankful for that silly app because it landed me with the most amazing man I’ve ever met. I’ll never forget on our very first date; I left the restaurant, immediately called my best friend and said “thats it, I’m done dating, he is the one.” It’s truly remarkable when you know you really just know, and its the best feeling in the world.
how they asked
Devon’s birthday was coming up on February 22nd I made reservations downtown Stillwater MN to make his day special! Little did I know, he had his own plan in mind. When we were walking around downtown he looked toward the river and suggested we should check out the new ice castles they made this year. I had never been, so I was excited to explore them! While we were walking through this gorgeous maze of lit up ice he was right behind me, the next thing I knew I turned around to find him on one knee. He said “what greater gift than to have you forever on my birthday?” I obviously screamed yes with tears running down my cheeks. I was so shocked and overwhelmed with happiness. To make our day even more special, from the shadows of the ice lighting was his brother and wife taking photos for us to hold this perfect memory forever. It was truly the best day ever, and like he said, the best birthday gift he could ask for!
Engaged and SO excited,
