ABOUT THE COUPLE

How they met:
Liz and Adam met at Anna Maria College, their alma mater.

How he proposed:
Liz had to be at work first thing the morning Adam proposed, which was also the morning Adam asked her parents for her hand.

Once Liz got home from work, they rushed to get to the beach because Adam had been wanting to go for many weeks. On their way, there traffic was, of course, horrible and backed up for a few miles.

Once they got there, it was jam packed and they couldn't even make it onto the sand, so they decided to have a picnic at a gazebo near the beach.

After finishing their picnic, they watched the waves crash on the beach, and once they were ready to head back to the car, Adam asked, "Alright, you ready to head out?" Liz kind of confused said, "Sure." Adam then said, "But, before we head back to the car; I need to ask you something..." Liz said, "Oh my god."

"Will you marry me?" Adam asked. Liz started to cry and cried out, "YES!"

Bride's education and occupation: Liz graduated from Anna Maria College in Paxton with a bachelor's degree in humanities. She is scheduled to graduate from the school with a master's degree in special education in August, and is currently a first and second grade teacher at Saint Michael's School in Brattleboro, Vt.
