Abbey and Bryant
How We Met
I first met Bryant when he played in the Big 33 Football Classic in 2012. He was the kicker for the Pennsylvania team. I happened to be a cheerleader for it but was picked to cheer for the Ohio team. It took him about two years to reach out to me via Facebook messenger. At the time he was attending Messiah College and I was looking to transfer there since I lived in the area. We then hit it off really well and began dating on 01/01/2014. We have been together ever since!
How He Asked
His family took me on a beautiful vacation to Italy this past summer where Bryant chose to propose to me! We were in the Cinque Terre right along the coastline in one of the towns known as Vernazza. It was beautiful! He had planned the whole night out. Coordinating with his family to track his phone so they could find our exact location for the proposal. We were walking up to this beautiful spot on a hiking trail that was a lookout for the town of Vernazza when I spotted his family coming around the corner. He then got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife! I was so excited. We both couldn’t stop smiling!! We then had a beautiful day here celebration on a hill that overlooked the water.
