The proposal: Sam proposed on Aug. 31, 2011 at an Orioles game at Camden Yards. The couple was standing in line to get caricatures when Allison left to get food. While she was gone, Sam handed a note to the artist to let him know he was planning to propose.
When Allison returned, the artist began drawing the caricatures and turned it around for her to see it after he finished.
"There was a little speech bubble that said, 'Will you marry me?'" exclaims Allison.
Sam had selected a princess cut diamond engagement ring with diamonds along the band from Colonial Jewelers in Frederick, where his grandmother's engagement ring was also purchased.
The venue: About 180 guests attended the ceremony and reception at The Belvedere in Mount Vernon.
