How Did You Meet?
Elise and AnDre met eleven years ago in August of 2011, the summer before freshman year of high school. Elise had chosen to join the choir at Johnson High School. A week before the meet and greet, she messaged AnDre on Facebook because he was the cutest boy in the choir Facebook page. They made arrangements to see each other but that ended up being a bust. By the end of the night, he eventually got her number, texted her right after and immediately started complimenting her. The two young love birds had a couple classes together and after about a year and a half of cat and mouse, Elise realized she was in love.
During her sophomore year, Elise was the photographer for the yearbook. She volunteered to photograph the choir’s Christmas performance solely because AnDre was going to be there. After her realization that she loved him, she finally said yes to a first date!
“We went to Olive Garden…with my parents! I remember my mom took me to Francesca’s at The Village to pick out a dress for my first date. AnDre dressed up as well and my dad had a great time asking him so many questions at dinner that AnDre didn’t even put a dent in his food. It seemed like every time he’d try to take a bite, my dad would ask him another question! My parents loved him instantly and we have been together through 6 years of long distance while in high school and college.”
