After meeting at a mutual pal’s wedding, southern sweethearts Kela and Daryl were soon head-over-heels in love. Now they’re planning to tie the knot in a sunset ceremony in Tennessee. Congrats!
Team Daddy's Girl
“We had been running errands on a Saturday,” says Kela of the day Daryl proposed. “One stop involved going by my dad's house. Once there, while I stood up I saw a huge grin on my dad’s face. Then I noticed Daryl down on his knee. I turned around and he asked me to marry him. It was a simple and perfect moment with my dad and my future husband.”
“Our weekends are typically filled with athletic activities for my son,” says the bride-to-be. “Some weekends we have events social events to attend and as of December 2014, our Sundays involve spending time with Aubrey Désirée, Daryl’s granddaughter.”
“Unfortunately, Daryl’s parents are no longer with us, so I did not get the honor of getting to know them,” says Kela. “From what he tells me, our fathers are pretty similar. I have enjoyed hearing stories about them and have honored them in my own special way. Last year on the one-year anniversary of his father’s passing, I made a donation in his memory.”
“With so much pain in the world from broken relationships and marriages, I am looking forward to our marriage (DKMerger) to be fun and lasting,” says Daryl. “I want our marriage to be something that will tell people that it is possible in this day and time to make it in a marriage when society makes it more convenient to do the opposite.”
