Alison and Keith
How We Met
My girlfriends and I stumbled into our favorite college called Rock Lobster after our last sorority formal, while Keith also walked in to meet his friend who worked at the bar. While he waited for his friend, he locked eyes with me on the dance floor just before I was about the leave. As I was walked by Keith pointing me out to his friend, he came up to me and said two words, “You’re amazing” and quickly walked away. Intrigued by this rare pick-up line, I followed him to the bar to say hi, to which he replied “You’re even more beautiful up close”. Still intrigued, I asked him if he would buy be a drink, and he said “I don’t want to buy you a drink, I want to buy you dinner.” So now I’m thinking.. who is this guy? I got a little sassy and said “well, if you want to take me out to dinner you’ll have to get my number first!” Keith quickly pulled out his phone to get my number. Two nights later we had our first date at Mama Carolla’s in Indianapolis, and the rest is history!
How He Asked
My fiancé, three of his friends, and I had a NYE ski trip in Breckenridge planned since the summer, but I had no idea what I was in store for on the first day of our vacation. We all landed in Denver before noon, grabbed a small bite to eat, and headed straight for the mountains. I had just received a new DSLR for Christmas, so I was eager to get out to Sapphire Point Overlook before dark, a stopping point on a lake surrounded by mountains that my family and I always stopped at when we vacationed in Breck. As the five of us walked out to the overlook, I was taking photos with my DSLR, one of the guys has his GoPro on, and we were taking amazing photos right before sunset. I wanted a picture with my bae, so I gave my camera to our friend and walked over to pose. Immediately after a couple shots, Keith grabbed my arms and turned to me. I suddenly resisted, asking him “what are you doing?…what’s going on?”
Then, he got down on one knee, began saying an amazing speech that I was too shocked to fully understand, pulled out the ring, and asked me to be his wife!
I screamed “YES” in disbelief that this was all actually happening, and turned to all of our friends realizing they had captured our entire special moment.
