How They Met
McKenzie and Dalton’s relationship dates all the way back to high school. The pair first met through the introduction of their close friends Madison and Darin. It was a football game the night before homecoming and Madison was certain that Dalton and McKenzie would be a good fit.
“Madison was talking me ear off about this guy that I just had to meet. She claimed, ‘Kenzie he would be perfect for you. Maybe he would even ask you to the dance.’ The dance was the following evening and I had no intention of going so I kept trying to shrug it off.”
Madison’s homecoming date, Darin met up with the pair and was just as persistent as Madison, and as certain that McKenzie and Dalton needed to meet.
“It took a bit of persuading, but Darin and Madison managed to talk meet into meeting Dalton. I caved thinking that I would just go say “hi” and that would be it – no harm done.”
Madison and Darin led McKenzie over to meet Dalton and everything changed.
“They led me over to this blue-eyed, blond haired fella with an infectious laugh and the biggest smiled I had ever seen. Darin said something of an introduction, but I don’t remember hearing it. We said ‘Hi’, shook hands and I felt tingles through my arm; I couldn’t stop smiling!”
The meeting turned into a date to the homecoming dance! Then a few double dates and then, four months later, Dalton would ask McKenzie to be his girlfriend.
“Almost seven years later on Sept. 13th, 2018 Madison and Darin stood with us again as we said our vows, signed our marriage certificate and danced through the night.”
