On May 25, 2013, David took me and all of our parents to the Biltmore in Asheville, NC, to see the rose gardens. While wandering through the gardens, I asked my dad to take a picture of us under a beautiful rose trellis. When we posed for the picture, David took my hand and knelt down on one knee with a sparkly ring in hand. I was shocked, and of course said yes! After the rest of our Biltmore tour, we enjoyed a family dinner to celebrate.

Alyssa and David will be married May 17, 2014.
