Melissa and Kyle

How We Met

Kyle and I met at the very end of our Freshmen year of Undergrad at University of Illinois. We lived in the same dorm building, 1 floor apart, for the whole year and didn’t meet until 3 weeks before the semester ended right outside the building. We spent 1 night together talking and drinking wine, and have been inseparable ever since!

How He Asked

Kyle and I were on vacation in Jamaica and it also happened to be our 7th anniversary. Kyle suggested we do professional pictures at the resort, and I said of course, not knowing he was going to propose during the session. We were taking pictures down by the beach, Kyle said he wanted to try a pose, and before I knew it he was down on one knee! We are both avid Harry Potter fans, and his speech was, “These past 7 years with you have been better than any 7 years at Hogwarts. Would you do this Slytherin the honor of marrying a Hufflepuff?” And of course I said yes! As he stood up and kissed me, everyone at the resort watching applauded..it was a dream come true!
