The couple met on the Baylor drum line a few years ago.
"We just love the marching band," Simpson said.
"The people you meet here are just really special and we met here and this proposal is a result of that. We are very thankful for the Golden Wave Band."
Simpson said the proposal took three months of planning but he successfully got the band to spell out the words "Marry Me?" on the field.
Vanessa said the proposal was a total surprise.
She said “yes.”
