Kevin and Samantha met in the panhandle of Florida when he was 27 and she was 22. Samantha’s friend, Brittany, showed her a picture of her boss, and Samantha just HAD to meet him! Samantha thought Kevin was “the most beautiful man I had ever seen.” She even downloaded his facebook profile picture, lol!
One night, she went out with Brittany and begged her to text Kevin to come meet them. He did, and they hit it off immediately. He liked Samantha’s sassy personality and asked her on a date the next day. Only three dates later, Samantha got into a horrible car accident on her way to meet Kevin for dinner. By God’s grace, she walked away without a scratch! Samantha had to speak with police and wait for hours, and who do you think came and stood on the side of the highway with her? Kevin did. He was there for her in her time of need! He even rented a car for Samantha because she was too young to do so in the state of Florida. That’s when she knew Kevin was really something special.
After that, things moved pretty fast! Kevin flew Samantha to meet his family after one month of dating. Samantha was petrified, but she made it out alive! A couple weeks later they said I love you after eating sushi.
Fast forwarded 7 months, and Kevin found out his job was being transferred to North Carolina. Samantha had to choose between grad school and Kevin, and she chose Kevin! Their first year in Raleigh was tough. Samantha got really sick in the middle of this big transition, but once again, Kevin stepped up and took care of her. Even though it was really hard, Kevin made it look effortless. Their relationship really changed after that because they didn’t know if Samantha was ever going to get better. They realized what actually mattered, and with this new perspective on life, their relationship bloomed!
Kevin proposed to Samantha under the Christmas tree, and they finally got married at the Marrimon Wynne House in May, 2019! The best thing about Kevin and Samantha’s relationship is that they are best friends! They are constantly laughing and playing, and their connection was so apparent on their wedding day! Kevin and Samantha had a really special and intimate first look that brought the tears! We loved the overflow of joy and emotion these two had over getting married!
The celebration continued with some of Kevin’s breakdancing moves (featured in the film!), an awesome photo booth, some Italian Ice, and a ride on the Great Raleigh Trolly! We are so happy for Kevin and Samantha, and we wish them all the joy and love!
