He asked her to meet him at his parents’ house for dinner. When she arrived, his brother asked her to sit at the open back of a Honda CRV, gave her a headphones to listen as he “plays her a song.” Little did she know that she would be treated to the ride of her life.

The car drove slowly up the street as more and more familiar faces popped to join the street dancing, including Lamb’s parents. The dancing party of 60 parted to reveal Lamb, all but handsomely suited. He approached her and got down on bended knee.

They plan to marry in a year. They met 6 years ago.
