On October 11, 2014, Kevin and Alexis met at the Plaza Resort and Spa in Daytona Beach, where they happened to be in town, to attend the annual Phinally Famous event created for the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. chapter of Bethune Cookman University was taking a break from the party and happened to be sitting right next to each other. Kevin started the conversation by asking Alexis, “Didn’t we take anatomy classes together?” Alexis admits that she initially wiped it, but then Kevin’s charm proved irresistible. They laughed all night and the rest is history.
After a four-year relationship, the couple got engaged while on vacation in Spain. When searching for venues, they wanted a location that mimicked the look and feel of a destination wedding, even though we are not leaving Florida. They found the perfect setting at Treasury On The Plaza in St. Augustine, Florida. The great venue was perfect for entertaining their 150 guests, and Alexis and Kevin found clever ways to save money while focusing on the items that meant most to them.
