Abby and Kevin
How We Met
My love story started on a plane…
On January 14, 2013 I was returning home to Kansas City, Missouri from Denver, Colorado on flight 822. Little did I know my assign seat 27F would be next to my future husband. I remember when I first looked at Kevin Carey, he was more interested in the KU basketball game than talking to me. Kevin was shy and not very talkative, I am the exact opposite not knowing a stranger. We started talking and discovered he graduated high school with my cousin and lives in Shawnee, Kansas near my aunt and uncle. At that moment I thought “Wow, what a small world!”. As the flight went on we laughed and talked the entire time, I had no idea I was falling in love with the man I will share the rest of my life with. January 14th 2016 will be three years since we met.
How He Asked
On November 20, 2015 I received the most amazing proposal while Kevin and I were live mannequin models at Wedding Expressions by Geri for the local mayor’s Christmas tree lighting. I was wearing a red Snow White Disney wedding dress while Kevin was in a black tux. The local news station came to film our proposal. We were surrounded by family and friends. Kevin even asked my friend who is a professional photographer to take pictures of the proposal. It was a magical night. A night I will cherish forever.
