Memorable Proposal at the Railyard Ice Rink

By  | 

Lincoln, Neb.-- Kaleb Andersen and Ali Luckey met when they were in grade school; but, they didn't start dating until about three years ago.

For Luckey and Andersen, Saturday night started off like a normal date night. But, what happened next, was anything but usual.

Andersen chose to pop the big question at the ice rink inside the Railyard, complete with a two minute video on the big screen, friends and family alongside to capture the big event.

When it came down to decision time, it was an easy one for Luckey - she said yes.

"I always had thoughts about my man of my dreams right here proposing to me," Luckey said.

"And it just was amazing. I couldn't have asked for anything more. And he's just an amazing man and I'm happy to be with him for the rest of my life."

Andersen said it took a lot of preparation to set up the whole night, and that his nerves kicked in just minutes before he was set to propose.

"My nerves," Andersen said, "I tried to not think about it for the week.

"And then, it was like 7:13 p.m. and I was checking my phone. And I was like, taking deep breathes. Oh man, here it is."

Following the proposal, the couple took a victory lap around the rink to the applause of dozens of onlookers.
