In the summer of 2014, Melyssa took a trip to visit family and friends, and Andrew stayed home due to the unbending nature of medical school. However, being vigilant of this window alone, Andrew skyped Melyssa’s parents to ask permission to marry Melyssa, and introduced the ring he had designed to them. On the night Melyssa returned, they found themselves walking along the banks of a local lake at sunset. Andrew had envisioned this moment, and he would propose just as the sun would dip down below the horizon. Unexpectedly, Melyssa talked right through it – Andrew’s moment had passed. With no more daylight to keep them at bay, mosquitos quickly took over the shore, and Andrew and Melyssa were forced to leave. While walking back to the car, Andrew noticed a single street lamp, illuminating a look-out over the lake, creating a perfect spotlight for his proposal. As they approached, Andrew dropped to his knee, and in that moment, the streetlight blew-out, leaving the two in complete darkness, with Andrew one his knee, ring in hand. Passed the point of no return, Andrew proposed, and Melyssa happily accepted.
