Michelle and Cash
How We Met
We met at school while Cash was the Student Body President and I was the President of the sorority. We were friends for a few years before one night he mustered up the courage to ask me out. Initially, I actually said “no” but he kept asking and finally I gave in (so glad I did!) He took me to an MMA fight with his best friend and little brother, it was the most fun night I have ever had and took all of the pressure off of that “first date”. We have been inseparable ever since.
How They Asked
At our MBA graduation, I walked across the stage first and got hooded. As I reached for the diploma from the Dean – he showed me a note inside. The note read “last year we agreed that we didn’t want to think about marriage until graduation. I can’t wait a second longer. Will you… turn around?” As I turned around, Cash, who was getting hooded behind me, was down on one knee. I flung my diploma and ran into his arms. Later, I found out he worked with the Dean of the college and other faculty to plan the entire thing! It was unreal!
