Carolyn & David’s engagement story!
“While I knew that a proposal would likely be coming soon, I was completely surprised on November 20th, 2012! David had told me about a banquet for University of Kansas athletics that he had been invited to. This was not uncommon, so I of course believed him. He told me that it was cocktail attire and what time to leave. As we approached Lawrence, several details should have stood out to me! He was acting a little weird, and when I asked if we would know anyone at the banquet, he said he was nervous- very unlike him! David also was texting while driving which I continued to ask him to stop, but he kept doing it. David said the banquet was in Strong Hall (a weird building for a banquet!) so we parked behind the building, which just so happens to be next to the Campanile (bell tower) at KU. There is a legend about the Campanile that if you kiss underneath it, you will be together forever. David and I had kissed underneath it in May of 2011, but this night, he suggested that we go into the Campanile, since we hadn’t been in there at night. I naively agreed, and only as we got very close did I suspect something! He quickly started telling me all sorts of mushy nice things (none of which I remember!), presented me with a beautiful ring, and we were engaged! David also had a friend of ours taking photos which was a wonderful surprise. We are so excited for our wedding and life together!”
