How We Met

Mark McKinnon is an American actor, acting coach, and minister who helps people find their identity and purpose from Waldorf, MD, and Brittney S. Carter is an ambitious Public Relations professional with a heart full of love from a small country town called Mullins, SC. Mark and Brittney met from Mark contacting Brittney on social media asking her to plan an event. After a few exchanged e-mails, they exchanged numbers and began to casually converse. Unexpectedly, after a few weeks of talking on the phone all night and getting to know each other better, Brittney went to work and was asked by acolleague randomly was she seeing anyone. Shocked by this question because she didn’t consider Mark someone who she was “seeing”. Brittney responded no and asked why? Her colleague informed her that she had this guy she wanted her to meet. This young man who she wanted her to meet was a Minister at her church, and she referenced him as Boaz in the Bible. When Brittney asked who is he and what does he look like; what came next she knew had to have been predestined by God. Her colleague told her the young mans name was…. Mark McKinnon.

From that moment on, these two were inseparable. Mark and Brittney’s life scripture is,

1 Timothy 4:12, “Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.”

How He Asked

An e-mail came to Brittney saying that her and Mark were selected to be interviewed for a huge Christian magazine to be featured in an upcoming issue on purity and abstinence. With much excitement, Brittney immediately confirmed and shared the great news with Mark. Little did she know, Mark was the one behind the email and had the entire interview staged for his grand proposal. All week Brittney was preparing for this huge interview! She went and picked out new clothes, hired professional make-up artist and hairstylist in preparation for Friday. Friday came and they both were greeted by the lady who contacted them on the email, (which was Mark’s friend and colleague). She led them to the club room where the interview actually took place. After a series of questions, B Roll, and live footage, she ended the interview asking Brittney and Mark what are the plans for the future. With cameras still rolling, Mark pours out his heart, tells Brittney he is ready to start his future with her right now. He gets down on one knee and asks her would she spend the rest of her life with him! With tears of joy, she gratefully replied, YES!
