Alanna Steinmeyer and Blair Atkins met in college at George Mason University. After losing touch for about seven years, they randomly bumped into each other at a Nationals baseball game. Shortly after they went on their first date, the rest was history!
They got engaged on July 27th 2019. Blair planned a big surprise and had their families and close friends in on it. To keep Alanna from suspecting anything, he convinced her that they were going to visit his parents that weekend which would be typical and not set off any alarms. That morning he asked her to go for a walk in the park by their old apartment - they would hang out there quite a bit playing games, chatting, picnics, etc. While it was just the two of them, he got down on one knee and popped the question!
While they were in the park, everyone else (family and friends) arrived at a separate meeting point to board a limo bus Blair chartered to take them all to a winery for the day. With the help of friends, he timed it so the bus would stop at the park just as he finished proposing. As the bus stopped, Alanna looked over and there were her parents, Blair's parents, and all of their close friends filing off the bus. She was overjoyed because one of the first things she thought was how she wished her parents could be there for this.
After all the excitement and many pictures were taken, they all piled back onto the bus and they partied all the way to a winery where they spent the entire day together. It could not have been any more perfect!
If vacationing was something they could do full time, they would! So it was natural to take everyone on vacation to Say I Do! The couple exchanged vows oceanside at the exclusive Casa Marina in Key West, Florida. After making official, they partied and danced the night away and had such an epic night full of love, laughter, and a very happily ever after!
Congratulations to you and your families!
