Clint and Allyssa first met at 'The Porch,' a young professionals ministry in Dallas. Clint had his eyes on Allyssa and cleverly asked for her number so they could "all hang out as a group." Clint called Allyssa to her surprise and she said yes to a dinner date. Their First date was at an Indian food restaurant where they had immediately connected and knew they wanted to get to know each other more. They have enjoyed long walks on the beach..kayaking, hiking, apologetics seminars, missions, and growing their faith in Christ day to day. Clint and Allyssa became a couple July 3rd at the fireworks show in Addison, TX. They both are excited to live a life in pursuit of Christ together and to spur each other on in life's adventures.
Clint started the morning by taking Allyssa on a beautiful walk at Malibu state park. Previously that year Clint had prayed for a Godly woman at this spot. Allyssa had also prayed around the same time for a godly guy to come into her life. They shared this with each other and continued their hike exploring and adventuring just as they hoped their life would continue to be together. Afterwards, they headed to a nice dinner where Clint conspired with a local photographer and his wife to meet at Pointe Dume, where he planned to get down on one knee and propose, unbeknownst to Allyssa, who was just trying to spot a Whale while waiting for Clint to return from the bathroom(he was taping his microphone under his shirt like a secret agent). After the check was rung they then went to Point Dume where Clint led Allyssa up the cliff(she was rockin those heels). Clint pointed to a general direction and asked Allyssa to take a look. Allyssa, not seeing the direction and catching on to Clint's plan, thought a rock climber would pop up with a 'Will you marry me.." sign. But Clint redirected her sight to the photographer and videographer who were hidden in plain sight. And there he began to tell her all the things he loved about her and that she was his proverbs 31 woman. He got down on one knee and asked the question. Allyssa then said yes(three times by the photographers request). They then took the hike down and had a great ending with the most beautiful sunset they had ever seen which Clint had prayed for earlier that day(if you don't think so look take a look at the video below) AND SO THE JOURNEY BEGINS!
