Although they grew up down the road from each other and attended small rival high schools, the two did not meet until a chance encounter in 2011 in Chicago. After a long-distance relationship and a year together in California, the couple returned to Chicago in the summer of 2013. In the fall, Andrew proposed to Allison and surprised her with a weekend of celebrations that included their parents and siblings flying to Chicago from St. Louis. 

A December, 2014 wedding is planned in St. Louis.
