Alyssa Kleinman and Jared Higgins first met in 2010 at Emory University. A graduate of The Emery/Weiner School, Alyssa grew up in Houston while Jared grew up in Carlisle, Mass. Both of their mothers were raised on opposite sides of the same apartment building in Queens, NY. After they met in Atlanta, Jared moved to New York City, and Alyssa followed shortly after. On a snowy night, Jared took Alyssa ice skating in their favorite NYC location, Central Park. Despite this being Jared’s first time on ice skates, he gracefully got down on one knee and proposed as a crowd of skaters cheered. The couple celebrated with parents Ellen and Michael Kleinman, siblings Jonathan and Mackenzie, soon-to-be sister Rachel Navon, and parents Carolyn Hoffman and Colin Higgins.
