Watch Alan and Patti Herbert as they share their special story with us.


The Herberts have spent their 50-plus years together celebrating the love that first blossomed at the University of Miami and has grown exponentially with each passing year. 

The couple met in 1954, while Patti was sitting at a typewriter in the Miami Hurricane office. Patti’s reply when Alan asked her out on a date was, “well, if we go on our first date, it has to be memorable.”
