“The idea of asking Lexi to marry me on 34th Street was an idea from my stepmom,” Jones says. “We have never seen the lights on 34th Street. Usually, every year around Christmas, I join Lexi’s family at the Symphony of Lights in Columbia. But, unfortunately because of renovations to Merriweather [Post Pavillion], we could not go this year. So, instead, I convinced her to go to 34th Street in Hampden for the Christmas lights. I came up with the idea to propose to her by making a giant sign for 34th Street. Luckily, our friend, Jenny Hensley, recently moved there and graciously agreed to be part of the day.”
Nick parked the car on Beech Avenue and sent Jenny a text as he and Lexi walked up 34th Street.
