Candace and Devoe
How We Met
We met in chemistry class during my sophomore year of college. The class was at 8 am. I have never been a morning person, so we didn’t talk much. We frequented many of the same local hangouts and always exchanged hellos when we bumped into each other. One night, as I was leaving one of the bars we often visited, I heard someone call my name. I turned around to see Devoe (full of liquid courage, of course) down on one knee. He jokingly asked me to marry him, and all of our friends had a good laugh. A few months later, he asked me out on a date, and we have been together ever since!
How He Asked
Nearing the end of my third semester of grad school, Devoe suggested that I take a break from studying to spend the day Christmas shopping in Georgetown. On our way to pick up some cupcakes, we took a detour to walk by the Georgetown Canal. There, he got down on one knee and popped the question — this time with a ring and a photographer hiding out to capture the special moment!
