While Alison and Mohammad officially met over mini-golf in 2017, they also spent 3 years together at the same middle school and high school. Alison and Mohammad were both active members of their high school DECA chapter, and on date #2 a perusal of their high school yearbooks resulted in a lot of laughs as well as the discovery of several pictures of the two of them standing just a few feet apart. This bond over high school memories led to more dates and the discovery of a shared passion for food and new experiences. On one of their more memorable dates, Alison convinced Mohammad to go skydiving with her to celebrate his 30th birthday! Over the years they have shared many wonderful experiences together: trips to Chicago, and Europe; camping; raising their puppy, Lily; a new restaurant and a PhD. After a busy year with a new job and a new restaurant, they decided to take a last-minute trip to San Francisco this past November. During a beautiful coastal hike from Land's End to the Golden Gate Bridge, Mohammad popped the question! They are looking forward to celebrating their wedding with all of you this July in Québec City.
