How We Met
Chris and I were introduced through a mutual friend at a football game when we were freshmen at the University of Pittsburgh. After realizing that we had a class together and that we were both commuters, we began hanging out between our classes. We had a lot in common so we quickly became very close friends, doing almost everything together. After two years of best friendship, we shared our first kiss in the Oakland Zoo student section at a Pitt basketball game.
how they asked
Four years after our first kiss, he had his boss send a fake email inviting him and a date to a work dinner that would take place on the anniversary. Since it wasn’t an anniversary we celebrated, and I wasn’t even sure he remembered the date, I had no idea anything was going on! When we arrived at the Petersen Events Center that night I still thought it was a dinner for work, until we started walking towards the court, and I noticed no one was there. When we stepped out onto the court, “All of Me” by John Legend began playing along with a slideshow of pictures of us on the Jumbotron. He walked me over to the spot where we had our first kiss, got down on one knee, and asked me to marry him. Of course I said yes! He even had our families up in the stands watching so they could be part of our big night. Everything about our engagement was perfect and we can’t wait to say ‘I do!’
