Jessica and Matthew
How We Met
I met my future fiancé on the 2nd day of calculus class at Texas A&M University. She stole my seat so I sat next to her. The rest is history!
How He Asked
We’re both huge Tesla geeks. We are attracted to the fact that they are eco-friendly, sustainable, and now that the model-3 has come out.. affordable for the middle class. So I borrowed a friends brand new model 3 from Austin and drove it to Fredericksburg on July 4th. Jessica’s mom owns a few b&b’s and we had all of our friends and family there for the holiday (my cover). Of course after 3 months of a drought in Texas it decided to rain (🤦🏻♂️) so my photographer offered to bring umbrellas and we all decided to look at the rain as good luck and not get discouraged by it. Everything on a model-3 is controlled by a touch screen monitor (no buttons anywhere, just the screen). So I pulled up the touch screen drawing pad and scrawled “Will you marry me?”. I then parked and went to find Jessica through the group of friends and family. I told her I had something she had to see. She was beyond surprised and excited to see the car and once I had her sit down in the drivers seat it didn’t take long for her to discover my secret message. To say she was surprised was an understatement. She hugged me and we kissed in the pouring rain all the while our photographer was stealthy taking photos from across the street like a paparazzi. Overall a huge success and I couldn’t imagine it going any better!
