How Did You Meet?: Kristen and Kyle have actually known each other for about 7 years before they started dating! Kristen went to grade school and high school with Kyle’s cousin Phillip, and they had become friends during that time. Since Phillip and Kyle were close and only lived a town away from each other, Kristen and Kyle hung out together in group settings often and eventually became closer friends. That was until August of last year (2011) where a “group” event in which “everyone else had to cancel” ended up in just the two of them spending time together. The two have been together ever since!
Engagement Story?: Kyle and Kristen had spent some time together in Kensington Metro Park over their courtship, and one fateful sunny day in October 2012 Kyle wanted to take Kristen for a walk amongst the fallen leaves before the winter came. On their walk, unbeknowingst to Kristen, Kyle had the ring box tucked in his sock! After finding a nice bench to sit on and rest for a while, Kyle started talking about the future and lead into – popping the question! The two plan to marry on Friday, August 9th 2013 at the Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth, MI.
