Abby and Derek’s intimate alley proposal was absolutely perfect. Derek and Abby currently live in Waco, TX but Abby was coming home for Christmas. Derek decided to fly in to surprise her (she thought he was going home for the holidays also)! Both families came together to clean up this alley and decorate it!
When she turned the corner to the alley her face said it all! There he was, her forever standing right in front of her!
Derek asked and Abby said YES!
Abby was reporting on a 2A playoff baseball game in May of 2019. The team she was covering came back from a 9-1 deficit and scored 8 runs in the bottom of the 7th. She was filming and updating on Twitter and the game was retweeted by other reporters in Dallas and Waco. Derek saw one of the posts and followed Abby on Twitter. She followed him back! He immediately messaged her and their relationship started from there! (Side note: they have very differing, very humorous stories on how quick the “follow back” was). They became “official” on June 15, 2019.
After SHE SAID YES, we went over to the Capitol Theater to take some photos under the letter board! The surprises didn’t end there!
We headed up the Town Square Social for “one last photo spot” and that is where their friends and family were waiting to celebrate with them! Both sets of parents, siblings, grandparents, and friends (Abby’s high school friends were there and even her college roommates).
Congratulations Abby and Derek! I can’t wait for your wedding day!
