Steve and Alyssa

How We Met

Steve and I met online through the Plenty of Fish site. I had been online dating for a year, but I was his very first online date… and his only online date!

How He Asked

Steve told me that we were going on a trip to Boston for Memorial Day Weekend. When I came home to grab my bags and head to the airport, I was greeted at the door by my dog.

Around her neck was an envelope. I opened the envelope and it informed me that we weren’t going to Boston, but rather he had planned a scavenger hunt.

The hunt began at the nail salon and took me to the place of our first date and first kiss.

Steve's Proposal in Belmont racetrack

It ended at Belmont Racetrack (my favorite place in the world!). Steve proposed in-front of the statue of Secretariat. However, the excitement didn’t end there. We left the track to go see my parents.

As we pulled up to the house I saw 60 of our closest family members and friends, all gathered on the front lawn with champagne. The rest of the night we celebrated with an “I Do BBQ!”
