After all of these years… McKenna and Kelly are finally turning their long-time, long-distance relationship into a long-time, close-together, FINALLY FOREVER marriage!

They met at church when they were both in middle school. McKenna had just moved to Minnesota. They had mutual crushes on one another for years… but they didn't start dating until a few years later in high school. Over the years, across multiple moves and colleges, they’ve found themselves in different states, and then even in the same state, though still an hour apart. But their love and dedication is truly a testament that love knows no distance or time.

On the day Kelly proposed, they went on a hike, and the trail they were hiking had a lot of broken glass on it. McKenna decided to create a project with the beautiful pieces of glass along the path. At one point, she knelt down to pick up a piece and Kelly said "Come look at what I found." When she walked around him, she saw a beautiful ring in his hand (not the glass pieces she was expecting!). He told her he loved her and wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. When Kelly finally asked McKenna to marry him, SHE SAID YES!

These two cannot WAIT to finally be married and end that long distance relationship, for once and for all!

Congratulations, lovebirds! We are excited to celebrate with you at the beautiful Almquist Farm this summer!
