Arielle and Matt's Jefferson Memorial Proposal
How We Met: Matt and I met in college at the University of the Pacific where we both played Division I volleyball. We graduated and moved to San Jose California to take over Bay to Bay Volleyball Club where we are now the Co-Directors together.
How He Asked: Matt and I have been dating for 5 years since college at the University of the Pacific. We are now the co-directors of Bay to Bay Volleyball Club located in San Jose, California. I am originally from the Washington DC area so during a trip back home, Matt planned a surprise proposal with my family. Before getting on the plane, Matt put a sticky note on the engagement ring box saying “engagement ring…please be discrete!!!” due to fear of TSA ruining the surprise! When we stepped off the plane, my mom & dad picked us up to “waste some time before the dinner reservation”. We all headed over to the Jefferson Memorial where a photographer was hiding to capture the moment. After walking around for a little bit, Matt finally grabbed my hands and proposed. The rest of the evening was filled with friends family and so much love. We plan to get married in early 2016.
