Alessandra and Zachary
How We Met
Zachary and I met our last year of college in our economics class as we were both pursuing our bachelors in business. I spotted him in our lecture hall out of 200+ students one day very early on in the semester, when he walked in late coming from soccer team practice. I remember thinking “ who is that?!”. I even texted one of my best friends to tell her that “the hottest guy ever just walked into my class”. Then one day a few months later, I walked into class late and the ONLY seat open was the one next to him. We basically stared at each other throughout the entire hour long class until I finally built up the courage to talk to him. I nervously asked him for the notes I missed and then asked if he wanted to study together for our upcoming final. Needless to say, we spent an entire day at the library and got NO studying done because we ended up just talking for HOURS.The rest was history! Fast forward a couple years and we fell madly in love, graduated, moved to LA together for our dream jobs, and got a puppy!
How He Asked
On March 29th, I went to work just like any other day. Zach picked me up from work in a suit, which I didn’t think anything of since he wears a suit to work everyday. He said “I was thinking we could go do something fun today.” He seemed so calm that I didn’t think anything of it as he drove down Pacific Coast Highway and we approached Corona Del Mar. He parked and we took a romantic walk along a path overlooking the beautiful beach. He held my hand and as we slowly walked he said “I want to tell you a story”. I didn’t understand what was happening until he began telling the story and realized it was all about us and our crazy love story. It all happened so fast, but my heart was racing and with tears in his eyes, he got down on one knee and asked me to spend forever with him!
