The cherry blossoms have bloomed, and love is in the air!

Ashley Hopko and Andrew Koenings had one of their very first dates at a performance of Ride the Cyclone last winter. Since Arena holds a special place in their hearts, Andrew arranged a very special behind-the scenes tour as a “birthday present” for Ashley. Instead, he surprised her with a proposal centerstage in Arena’s Kogod Cradle.

Congratulations to Ashley and Andrew! We love an Arena love story and hope you’ll visit us for many years to come (and remember, Arena also hosts weddings!). Shout out to Chrystal Vaughan of the Arena Events team for making the proposal possible.
