How did they meet: Steve and Kait are High School sweethearts who met at Brighton High when Steve was a sophomore and Kait was a freshman. They dated throughout high school spending most of their time at Mt. Brighton, Lake Chemung and Kensington Park with family and friends. After graduating high school, Steve headed off to Ferris State University and Kait to Michigan State University. They made the long distance relationship work by visiting one another every other weekend and spending summers in Brighton together. Steve and Kait both graduated from college May, 2011 and currently live together in Plymouth, MI.
Engagement Story: Steve and Kait received a trip to Napa, California as a graduation gift from their parents. They both love traveling and wine, so for Steve this was an easy choice on where to propose. He packed the ring into his carry on and didn’t let the bag leave his sight! After visiting a few wineries they arrived at the Silverado Resort and checked into their new home for the next few days. Steve asked Kait to go for a walk, and after they stopped on a quaint little bridge to enjoy the moment, he got down on one knee. She said “YES!” and the beautiful ring was exactly her size. The rest of the trip was filled with excitement, wine and relaxation.
