Sarah Stride & Steve Schwass
Las Vegas, NV
Location: Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino and Desert Shores Clubhouse
Date: October 8, 2011
Their story: In a crowd of more than 300, can you pick out a face? Steve did in his anthropology lecture course at Illinois State in the fall of 2003, and the face was Sarah’s. He saw her again behind the counter at his dorm’s food court and mustered up the courage to ask her about the class. A semester later, Steve asked Sarah on a date—to The Coffeehouse, a vegetarian café on campus. The rest, as they say, is another often-popular lecture course—history.
