Megan and Gabriel met in August 2008. They met through RUF, their Christian fellowship. Gabriel, a North Carolina mountain boy, was just starting his freshman year at Brown University, and Megan, a nearly native Texan, was going into her junior year at the Rhode Island School of Design. Gabriel worked up the guts to ask Megan out the night of the Superbowl in 2009 and… the following April she said yes! They dated for ten months until Gabriel asked Megan to marry him on the night of the Superbowl the next year. They have been counting down the days ever since.
