Ali and Justin
How We Met
We are both band directors and always ran into each other at competitions. With mutual friends, we started hanging out and fell for each other.
How He Asked
We went to Oxford for a “double date with friends” but on the way to the restaurant, I told her they would be late and had a surprise so we went to Rowan Oak: William Faulkner’s house and walked around to the front of the house where I asked her. She had no idea there was no actual double date but actually family and friends were waiting at a local restaurant to congratulate us.
