Well, sort of. Andrew claims he met Ali back in college while visiting friends at a frat party at the University of Michigan. However, she paid him no attention.
Fast forward to June 2013, Andrew's sister Lindsay totally hooked it up. Lindsay got Ali's number, passed it to her bro, he called, and they decided to meet for happy hour. A few drinks turned in to many and the rest is history.
Now, we can't wait to spend forever together.
Andrew proposed to Ali in Oregon's wine country on June 18, 2016.
A perfectly planned and executed surprise trip to the Willamette Valley complete with a private wine tasting tour was almost thrown upside down due to some hiccups with the weather (thanks, Oregon). Andrew's original plan was washed out (ask him about it), but luckily he pivoted and decided to propose at the first winery they visited, Anderson Family Vineyards. After some wine, a private tour of the vineyard, and some awkward stumbling around, Andrew got down on one knee and tears from Ali ensued.
The rest of the day was a dreamy haze filled with lots of wine, laughs, and memories that we can't stop talking about to this day. Months of celebrating eventually turned into the realization that we needed to plan a wedding...and here we are.
