How We Met
We met in high school marching band my junior, his senior year. In the show that year, he played my love interest! (see picture). That same year he asked me to his senior prom and to be his girlfriend, and we’ve been together for the five years since!
How They Asked
He asked me in the same spot my grandparents got engaged 60 years ago – under the Engineering Arch at the University of Michigan, where I now go to school. We had just gone to dinner so I had a takeout box in my hand he didn’t plan for! I knew it was about to happen so I turned to set the box down, and when I turned back around he was down on one knee.
He had my friends hiding around the corner ready to take pictures, and they all screamed when it happened! It was so perfect and so special that it was in a place that meant so much to my family.
