John and Nancy Hillhouse of Town & Country are pleased to announce the engagement of their daughter, Alison Carol Hillhouse, to Gregory James Cain, son of Mike and Vickie Cain of Kerrville, Texas.

The bride-to-be graduated from MICDS in 1995 and University of Virginia in 1999 with a B.S. in commerce. Currently, she works as the senior director of research and consumer insights at MTV.

The future groom graduated from University of Oklahoma in 1999 with a B.A. in management information systems. Currently, he works as the senior technical project manager at Major League Baseball Advanced Media LP.

The couple met through mutual friends in June 2010 at a lobster-roll picnic in Brooklyn, N.Y. One year later during a drive down the coast of California, Greg proposed on the beach of Big Sur. The following day, they drove to the San Diego area, where Greg had arranged for a surprise celebratory dinner with their families on the water in La Jolla. Following a May wedding in St. Louis and a honeymoon in Hawaii, the couple will reside in Brooklyn.
