After high school Steve, the football player, and Alison, the cheerleader, continued their athletic (and scholastic) pursuits at the University of Maine in Orono. They never connected throughout their four years of undergrad.
The pair graduated and moved to Portland to begin their careers. Their lives finally intersected one night out on the town. Alison and her best friend from college ran into Steve and his best friend from college in the Old Port. Soon after, Steve and Alison’s best friends began dating and Steve and Alison found a connection of their own. They shared their first kiss on Alison’s 25th birthday.
Steve took Alison to Kettle Cove in Cape Elizabeth for his proposal. The couple ended up on Crescent Beach at sunset. After professing his love and his excitement of spending a lifetime of adventures together, Steve dropped to one knee and asked, “Alison Elizabeth Bromley, will you marry me?”
