Carl and Alyssa Jensen

October 29, 2022

Carl and Alyssa knew about each other for a while before physically meeting on the Texas A&M University-Texarkana campus. Soon becoming classmates, Carl was a very outspoken and outgoing person, while Alyssa tended to sit in the back of the class and remain quiet. They saw each other in the elevator from time to time, where Alyssa was her awkward self. In March 2016, Alyssa found herself in a full leg brace after dislocating her knee and breaking her ankle. The very outspoken Carl decided to poke fun at her “robot leg,” and from that moment, they started a friendship that would lead to dating in December 2016. Their love for each other grew as they spent weekends at the ball fields and taking adventures. On December 11, 2021, at Carl’s company Christmas party, he dropped down on one knee and asked Alyssa to marry him. 

Carl and Alyssa planned an excellent day for an October wedding. The ceremony had to be moved inside due to rain, but it did not stop the fun and happiness around the room. Being surrounded by love and support from their family and friends made this day special. Their swift actions to move all the wedding setup and decor indoors made it possible for these two to experience a perfect wedding ceremony. Alyssa’s brother walked her down the aisle in place of her father, who had departed to Heaven seven years prior. Alyssa says, “It is a day we will never forget, as it was magical for both of us!” The couple is enjoying life together and looking forward to many anniversaries to come!
