There is such a simple beginning to the story of Morgan and Mackenson (Mack, for short): During their sophomore years at Mount Ida College, they met in an elevator on the way to their MicroEconomics class. Morgan started a conversation with Mack because "I thought he was so handsome!" As that semester progressed, they moved from sitting next to each other in class to fast friends that spent time together doing homework and class projects.
It wasn't until the summer of 2010 that these friends went on their first official date. Mack invited Morgan to the movies. They met in Downtown Crossing, where he treated her to Subway before watching The Karate Kid. Morgan describes the night as "fun and fabulous," ending with "a sweet walk around the commons."
As their relationship flourished, this couple began to share more and more life experiences. One of their favorite activities to do together is to go camping. The combination of the outdoors with time away from distractions gives Mack and Morgan plenty of time to focus on what's most important: having fun together. In addition to camping, they enjoy visiting the Cape, spending afternoons at the beach, and attending concerts and sports games together.
One of their other shared passions is food. Most of all, they love to eat Italian and Mexican food. If you're looking for some new food recommendations around Boston, their favorite restaurants include Papa Razzi on Newbury Street, Delfinos in Roslindale, and Lolita on Newbury.
Back to the love story!
Mack proposed to Morgan on November 13, 2017. She remembers "it was a rainy Monday night." The engagement ring was finally ready, and Mack picked it up after he finished work. He was so excited to propose that he drove all the way to New Bedford that night in order to ask Morgan's parents for permission. Once he had their blessing he drove all the way back home. Upon walking through the door, he immediately asked Morgan to marry him. He couldn't wait a moment longer!
This beautiful couple just celebrated their six year anniversary. I can't wait to see what the next chapter of their life together will bring: more beaches, more food, and definitely more excitement.
