Oakland Surprise Proposal: Alisa & Cindy
In February 2015, they ran into each other at the same monthly event, reunited and have spent the last thrilling year traveling, getting reacquainted and falling in love.
On March 4, exactly five years after the day they met, Cindy gave Alisa the surprise of a lifetime. She thought Cindy was in Tahoe skiing, but she was actually scheming with their friends to get Alisa to the restaurant for their surprise proposal.
Cindy was among the friends holding a long-stemmed rose and a little black box. They had first fallen in love watching “The Bachelor,” and the rose became their symbol. Cindy asked, “Alisa, will you accept this rose?” She took Alisa’s hands in hers and said she never wanted to spend another day without her. She got down on one knee, presented her with a sparkling diamond ring and asked her to marry her.
