Kristy and Clay first met in high school at Downers Grove South, they were 16 and 17 years old! Clay was Kristy's P.E. leader. She said "it took about a month of us staring at each other before we went on our first date to see Alvin and the Chipmunks. When you start dating that young it's hard because you're still kids, you are literally growing up together. We have truly evolved so much!" After 9 years of being together they feel like their love story is just beginning! They got engaged on July 28, 2017 in Michigan. They went for a steak dinner (their favorite!) and were planning on taking a walk on the river walk. As soon as they got to the river, Clay stopped and got down on one knee. Clay said "I couldn't wait a minute longer to do this.. this was something I've been waiting to do for the past seven years!" After popping the question, Kristy said "Hell yes!!!" They said one thing they both love about our relationship is how playful they are. She said "we live for jokes and teasing one another. You gotta keep things fun!" You can definitely see how playful they are in their photos! It was such a great time!
