From the words of Cindy, ” I met Allen in Summer 2010. Allen was a student at CU-Boulder and a Reservist with the U.S. Navy. I had just returned from Tianjin, China after completing her MBA from Oklahoma City University. We both had mutual friends getting together for pre-movie gathering at Dave & Busters and a movie following after. This is where I met Cindy for the first time. Conversation flowed and both at ease. We both have a lot of mutual friends which means running into each other, a lot. We both then connected through good old Facebook. Facebook messages continued to be sent back and forth. I felt so connected to him. One day, Allen needed a hair cut and asked me to hang out. I sat through Allen’s haircut at Modern Cuts and the day continued to Lollicup across the street. Here, we continued to chit chat for over 3 hours! Not knowing where time went… now it’s been over 8 years!


The Proposal

Allen had purchased Bruno Marstickets in a year in advance. During the year leading up to the day of the concert Allen planned the whole engagement. I had no idea that he was going to propose to me that day. Allen found the most perfect ring and did his research of the production to find the most perfect moment to pop the question. The day of the concert comes. The show is going great and so hyped. So now the song “Marry You” is playing and Allen asks to take a picture. I had a stranger take the picture and Allen followed to get on one knee to propose. I said “Yes!”
