Kendel and Zac met for the first time in high school. Their friends tried to set them up as prom dates during their senior year. Kendel was taking dual enrollment classes at North Caroline High School, so she got to meet Zac for a few seconds before class began. They were both very shy so they barely even glanced at each other. Unfortunately, they did not follow through as being each other's prom dates. Fast forward about five years... Kendel went through college and became a teacher and Zac went through the academy and became a State Trooper. One night, while working, Zac dropped his phone and it shattered. When Zac got a new phone he was going through his contacts and came across Kendel’s. Zac looked Kendel up on Facebook. Thanksgiving night of 2021, Zac decided to text Kendel. They talked a lot for a while and finally went on their first date on December 18, 2021. They went to the Ridgely Christmas Lights and walked around (at least 25 laps) and never ran out of things to talk about. Due to Covid, Kendel and Zac didn't see each other for a couple of weeks, but they continued texting each other. Over the months they started seeing each other as often as they could. August 18, 2022, they purchased their property together in hopes of building their future home. At the time, they would visit the property as much as possible and dream about the future. On November 18, 2022, Zac was taking Kendel out for a nice date. It was freezing cold, but of course, Zac wanted to take pictures of them on the property before dinner. Kendel didn’t know, but Zac was setting up his camera for a much bigger surprise. After talking for a few minutes and enjoying the view, Zac had Kendel stand up, while he got on one knee! Kendel was completely surprised, and said yes!!!
