Both soccer players at Christopher Newport University, in Newport News, VA, Kendall and Brian met each other freshman year, but really did not get to know each other until they became neighbors by chance Junior year.
After their first date to a local sushi restaurant, they knew they had something special going on. So after dating for almost two years, on Thanksgiving Day of 2014, Brian surprised Kendall at their family’s restaurant, Mac and Bobs, and proposed.
Kendall had no idea what was going on, she thought they were going down to Mac and Bobs to meet up with some family friends. When she walked into the restaurant her dad told her to go down to the outside porch because it was “vandalized.” When she got to the porch the sliding glass doors opened and she saw rose petals on the floor, candles lit, flowers, and pictures of her and Brian all laid out perfectly.
As she walked towards Brian she could hear one of their favorite songs, “I Choose You” by the band Timeflies playing (he always told her that when he proposed he would be playing this song.)
Everything was perfect! Brian got down on one knee and popped the question, and she obviously said yes!!!
When they walked back in both Kendall and Brian’s family as well as friends were there to celebrate.
