Alyssa and Colby
How We Met
Colby and I met through a campus ministry group at Baylor University. Our second year at college we were asked to co-lead one of the Bible studies together. During that fall semester we became best friends. I would meet up early at his house before the Bible study and we would chat together and played games. I eventually got up the nerve to ask him to my sorority’s formal and that evening could not have been more perfect.
A few weeks later we were studying at the library and as he was walking me back to my car at 2 am he asked me out on our first official date. I said yes, drove home and woke up my roommate in excitement and we spent the whole evening chatting with excitement. We went on our first date at a Christmas event on campus and have been together ever since. He will always be my best friend.
How He Asked
Colby joined my family on a vacation to Hawaii. Colby used to live in Hawaii when he served in the Marines, so he was excited to go back to his old “home”. He wanted to surprise me for our year and a half anniversary so he planned a picnic on the beach at sunset. We enjoyed dinner and wine and then as we got up to go on a walk he got down on one knee and proposed!
