Schylene, 24, is an executive assistant. Ivan, 25, is in the U.S. Army. They live in Alexandria.

The Main Event: Jan. 16, 2012, in Schylene’s hometown, Fort Worth, Texas.

How They Met: In the gym at the boarding school they both attended, each serving as “wingmen” to friends in the early stages of a relationship. “He insisted he knew the proper way to do crunches.”

First Impressions: “I had a huge crush on Ivan, but I had to keep it a secret from my roommates so they didn’t want to start dating him.”

First Date: At their school’s dining hall. “I picked her up at her dorm and we walked there together. We had a romantic dinner on dining hall trays.”

How He Proposed: Before a picnic lunch. “Just as I was getting hungry, Ivan asked me to marry him. I said ‘yes’ and was so happy, I was no longer hungry.”

Their Song: “Everything” by Michael Buble, “because I can always get Schylene to sing it at the top of her lungs.”

Stupidest Fight: When she tore the mat of the first picture they were trying to frame together. He told her it wasn’t a big deal, and she “stormed out of the apartment.”
