Jessica and Alyssa

How We Met

We met at Elon University when we were undergraduates. Aly was a softball player and I was a basketball player, and we met through mutual friends.

How They Asked

Aly got my ring from a local store in Burlington, NC that is now shut down… lol but it was called Eden Jewelry of Burlington. I got her ring from Kay jewelers. Aly plans on getting me a ring for the wedding that will be exchanged during the ceremony along with her wedding band from me.

Aly proposed to me while I had flown down to Miami to visit her during my 4 day Christmas break during my sophomore year of college (her junior year). She got a beautiful little condo on the beach for us to have some alone time during that break and took me at sunset onto a marina pier and popped the question!

As far as planning our wedding goes, we have taken things slow so that I can finish school. I am done with my masters degree in May 2017 and we are picking a date by December of this year for our wedding, then off to planning.
