How We Met: It all started back in May 2011 at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom. Allison was a dancer in the Festival of the Lion King show when Corey started to work there as a “Tumble Monkey.” A good friend of hers introduced them and at first Allison would not talk to Corey because she was shy. Corey insisted and things just took off from there. Their relationship grew stronger and stronger and they met great friends along the journey.

How He Asked: Corey and Allison took a trip to the University of Oklahoma where Corey went to college for a former teammate of his’ wedding. Corey thought this would be a great opportunity to propose to the love of his life knowing she would not be expecting it. He picked this location because if he never went to college there to do men’s gymnastics, he would have never ventured out to Disney World. Corey got down on one knee in front of the Gaylord Memorial football stadium on OU’s campus. She happily said yes and both of them were choked up as they just stood there and hugged each other. They had a wonderful photographer there to capture such a amazing moment. (Thanks to the Tarbets) It was such a great memory and they are looking forward to many more to come!
