Kenzie + Jeff {love story}

They met on the bus when she was in middle school. Their conversations consisted of awkward teasing that is middle school code for liking someone. Years later they were young high schoolers out on their first date. From a small town, the nearest movie theater was at least 45 minutes away, so you determined pretty quickly if conversation would be easy or difficult during a long car ride. But with Jeff and Kenzie it was effortless. They went to see the movie The Blind Side and both had an incredible time the entire evening. The ride how continued with conversations, and as Kenzi was relaxing on the long ride home she at some point managed to doze off. He woke her up after pulling in her driveway, feeling pretty insecure about the fact that his conversation skills must be a bit lacking if a girl falls asleep mid sentence. Kenzie felt horrible and apologized for her lack of manners. It must have been a pretty good date despite the circumstances because 6 years later they are still going on movie dates and she’s still falling asleep on his shoulder.
Years later, Jeff had big plans to propose to Kenzie on their upcoming trip to Hawaii. He could tell she was getting anxious, and knew she was feeling like he would never propose. He was sensitive to her growing disappointment, and decided that he would do it sooner than planned. He had been in the process of buying a home, so on they closed he decided to put his plan in action. Jeff brought Kenzie a brand new dress and shoes and left it with a note on the door to be ready to go out and celebrate their new house. Without Kenzie knowing where they were headed, Jeff took her to Chicago for dinner on the 40th floor of the Chicago Stock Exchange. They gazed at the skyline over dinner and then he asked her if she wanted to take a walk. 4 blocks later at Buckingham Fountain Jeff got down on one knee and proposed. In addition to all of the surprises that day, Jeff hired a photographer to capture the entire thing.
