I had the pleasure of spending my afternoon with these two. I asked Kaylee to write a little something about how the two met and fell in love. Reading this put a smile on my face, you can just see and feel how much this couple truly loves each other and how they can not wait to spend the rest of their lives together! Here is what she wrote...
"Alex and I met at church in the 7th grade. We became good friends through junior high and high school seeing each other only once or twice a week at church until he started attending a church in Deer Park our senior year of high school. After my youth group took a break for summer he invited me to his youth group and we hung out wednesday nights. We started dating July 6,2011. Every day for the rest of the summer we spent together either at his house, my house, or the lake enjoying each others friendship and new found love (even if we hadnt admitted it, it was still there).
In late August he left to go on a youth rally and we both had time to think about our future together. After spending a week apart and him not having cell service we realized we truly do love eachother and its not just another short term relationship. When he came back home we were both unsure of what was going to happen with him leaving for school. He told me that while he was gone he realized he was missing the one person he needs in his life. As we were star gazing one night he told me he loved me!
In late September he left for college over in Ellensburg. A whole 3 hours away!!! By the time two weeks went by he told me he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. I didnt know what to think at first cause he is kind of a spaz:) He came home when he could on the weekends to spend a few much needed days together. He went and bought me a ring and met with my dad to get his blessing. He proposed on December 11th to my complete suprise, well mostly a suprise. Every day he ceases to amaze me with how much he loves me by always doing sweet things for me, constantly telling me how beautiful I am and how amazing I am.
There were many pieces that had to fall into place for us to be where we are today. Every day we learn new things about each other and continue to grow as a couple. I cant wait to spend the rest of my life with the man of my dreams..." ~Kaylee
