Jahlisa met Caribbean cutie Kieran while on a family vacation in Trinidad and Tobago, and she just knew she'd found her soul mate.
"My first thoughts of Kieran were that he was so fun to be around," Jahlisa recalls. "He had us laughing the entire time and he had a great personality. I loved his sense of humor and kind heart. I thought he was a charming, confident guy who knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to go after it!"
"Since Kieran's my mom's best friends's son, she's known him since he was a baby and she can't stop saying good things about him," Jahlisa shares. "She sees him like a son and is thrilled that she was right about us making a good match!" Moms really do know best.
"My friends think Kieran's a great guy and they love his accent," Jahlisa shares. "They're always laughing when they're around him and they think he's a sweetheart." It's always great when your friends see what you see.
This couple likes to stay busy with fun and engaging activities. "Kieran is a big movie guy so we enjoy grabbing dinner and watching a late night movie together," says Jahlisa. "We also like doing activities like horseback riding, bowling, playing pool or going out for a night of dancing and good music."
Jahlisa says that she's looking forward to "starting a family and experiencing life's adventures" with her future husband. Kieran shares that he's looking forward to a life full of fun and enjoyment, and starting their own family. It looks like these two are on the same exact page, and we love it.
On what Keiran loves most about his bride-to-be: I love her intelligence, persistence, entrepreneurialism and how well she takes care of him. "Every day is like the first day we met," he adds. "I love that she can't ever get enough."
