About the Couple
Allie and Trevor’s story starts with a mutual friend, Andrei. Allie and Andrei are both originally from Pittsburgh but Andrei moved to Michigan in high school, where he met Trevor. Through visits to Pittsburgh with Andrei, Trevor eventually met Allie in the summer of 2013. Both went to college in their respective states. Although they stayed in touch throughout, the couple never dated until the very end of their senior year.
About the Proposal
The plans for the engagement had been set in motion months in advance. Trevor had contacted all of their closest friends and family members to let them know the when and where. They traveled from Miami, LA, Chicago, and Michigan to be there. However, in order to get the house ready for the after party, Allie needed to be somewhere else for most of the day. Insert Allie’s closest friends. A day of brunch and drinks with the girls? It didn’t take too much convincing on Trevor’s part. So while Allie was off in the Strip District with her friends, the real work was just getting starting.
While Allie’s parents were working diligently to set up their house for the party, Trevor was fighting a near panic attack over the weather. His original plan was a spot outside by the river near PNC Park. But rain suddenly moved in and a rainy proposal suddenly became a reality. Trevor worked with Hannah to think of a last minute switch to the location. They put our heads together and found The Pennsylvanian.
Trevor proposed with a radiant cut, solitaire ring with a custom setting of 14 diamonds underneath for Allie’s birthday – September 14. They spent the rest of the night celebrating with friends and family.
