How We Met
Our love story began January 2015, in Corpus Christi, Texas. We were both attending Texas A&M – Corpus Christi for our undergrad degree and both were involved in a sorority (Zeta Tau Alpha) and fraternity (Delta Chi). Without being involved in these organizations we would have never met. Although, we rushed at the same time, it took us more than 6 months to finally find each other and once we did, boom, that was it. It was the eve of the annual Delta Chi/ZTA paint wars mixer. Mel’s best friend was External Social Chair and coincidently Tim’s best friend was Delta Chi’s Social Chair. After helping their friends fill up hundreds of balloons with paint, and hurling said balloons at each other’s face the next day, Tim and Mel found their way into each other’s lives. 3 months later after talking, hanging out, and getting to know each other Tim officially asked Mel to be his girlfriend on April 20th, 2015. Since then, we have grown closer and stronger together. ‘Til death do us part.
how they asked
She thought she was just there to cheer on her favorite hockey team, the Vegas Golden Knights as they took on his favorite hockey team, the Dallas Stars. It was at the end of the first period when she heard the door to their suite open. Her parents walked in. She look bewildered! She turned back to him to get an explanation but it was too late. He didn’t drop glove but he dropped to his knee and presented her with a ring. Through a mess of mascara stained tears she said, “YES!” He shoots; he scores! The crowd cheered wildly.
