Kevin and Hannah both were working all day over the summer of 2016, which left them with not much time at all to hit the town and meet people. So they turned to a dating app just to see what was going on. Hannah was not completely committed to meeting anyone, but was only casually seeing who might be out there. Kevin, on the other hand was looking for someone to start a friendship that could blossom into a relationship. Kevin was the first to send a message and figured a cheesy pickup line would be a perfect first message. "Is your hand heavy? I can hold it for you!" When Hannah first saw the message she thought it was too cheesy and didn't respond. Until a few nights later, while Hannah was bored, she decided to respond. The two clicked instantly. After a couple weeks of chatting the two decided to meet in person. Kevin planned the date. The plan was to meet for an afternoon visit to The City Museum followed by a late lunch at Charlie Gitto's Italian Restaurant. While on the date, the two were having such a good time, that by the end, they were not ready for the date to end. The two decided to catch a movie, the remake of Ghost Busters. When the movie ended, the date was topped off with a kiss. After that the two continued dating.
On May 4th, 2017, Kevin took Hannah for a fancy dinner at Cooper's Hawk Winery and Restaurant. During the dinner Kevin was all nervous and fidgety, until dessert was served. That's when Kevin got down on one knee and asked for Hannah's hand in marriage. With tears welling in her eyes, Hannah said yes! . #SMITTENFORSWENSON
