HOW DID WE MEET? Depends on who you ask... Chase says we met at a bar watching a basketball game. Fast-forward 1.5 years, McKenzie says we met on a dating app - she remembers the basketball game at the bar, but not Chase. He didn't bring up our prior meeting until the third date. HOW DID HE ASK? Chase had a proposal planned in Nashville with both our families, but COVID had other plans. After 6 weeks with McKenzie in Houston during the quarantine, the ring burning a hole in his pocket, Chase got one of our favorite local bars to open just for us. McKenzie was completely surprised, and our families joined for a toast via zoom. AND NOW? McKenzie just started a postdoctoral fellowship in Nashville, and Chase is staying with his company and transferring to the Nashville office this fall. We are thrilled to start our lives together with friends and family!
