It's crazy to think we were there when these two met for the first time. Actually, my wife was the one that introduced them to one another.
Yes, I know it sounds crazy, but we knew both Ken and Mallory independently for the last couple of years. While talking to Ken at a networking event about his relationship status, my wife just happened to ask, "So Ken, what are you looking for in a woman?"
Ken says now that he listed off all the things he wanted in a wife because he didn't think that she was out there.
As the list of what he was looking for continued, my wife was checking off in her mind all the things that Mallory was as a single woman.
Once he finished, my wife responded with, "Well that's a great list Ken and it's awesome that you know what you want. Have you met Mallory yet?"
She was at the same networking event and the met for the first time. And they say the rest is history. Fast forward a year and these two are engaged and planning a Caberfae wedding in October.
(Come to think of it, perhaps my wife should become a dating consultant in Grand Rapids. This is the 4th couple she's setup that are now married, the other 3 all have children as well. Thoughts?)
If you're looking for great locations for engagement photos, a stroll through downtown East Grand Rapids is a great place to start.
