Alexx and McKinley
How We Met
McKinley and I met my freshman year of college (2010) when my best friend invited me out to see a local band play. I was only 18 and was not looking for anyone at the time but McKinley had other ideas. While I was taking pictures of his band he apparently had been looking at me all night. I was totally clueless about it all until he came up to me after his show and slyly asked me about the pictures and if he could see them. We ended up hanging out all night and every night going forward for at least 3 months. He has been there for me through so many things, including my mom passing away in 2014. McKinley is patient, kind, and understanding of all my little quirks (even when I get hangry).
How He Asked
This year we finally made a trip to Europe together and we were able to see the parts of England and Ireland where my family is from. Little did I know, he had other plans in mind. While we were on the Cliffs of Moher he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. It was the picturesque moment every little girl dreams of. It was the perfect place to start our forever together.
