Alyssa and Robert
How We Met
We met in college. He was a sophomore and I was a freshmen. We were both in a cappella groups; he was in the all guys group and I was in the all girls group. He wanted to be in touch with my best friend, but since she never answered her phone he asked for my number (so sneaky!) He ended up just texting me, and we realized we had so much in common. We became the best of friends, and ended up falling completely in love with each other!
How He Asked
He proposed to me at my final a cappella concert. He came up to school to surprise me for the concert, and proceeded to tell my parents, “The surprise isn’t over yet!” He looked so nervous during the entire concert; I was so confused! Finally, after our final song, my friend goes up to the microphone and says “We have one more thing to do soo…we’re gonna do that now.” And then, Robert came walking down the aisle with our friend playing the guitar behind him. He sang “Grow Old With You” from The Wedding Singer in front of the entire audience, and all of the girls in my a cappella concert were SOBBING. Then he got down on one knee, asked me to marry him, I said “yes”, and then the entire audience broke out in cheers. It was by far the most incredible moment of my life. So many people told us how much joy we gave them, and we want to keep sharing that joy!
