On their second date, Michael took Kayla on a private flight over Cincinnati. He later proposed to her at the old Blue Ash airport. With the help of Jennifer Stanley, their coordinator at The Honey Farm, they were able to incorporate an airplane motif throughout their wedding to commemorate their love of flying.

During the reception, the couple and their guests were touched that Kayla’s father—an Elvis Presley impersonator—made their first dance so memorable by singing his famous classic, “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”

The couple currently resides in Fairfield. The bride works as a compliance coordinator and yoga instructor, and the groom is an IT director and pilot.
