Heather McAllister and Kris Jordan
how they met: Heather and Kris originally met at Windsor Knolls Middle School, but didn’t quite run with the same crowds! They were able to reconnect 20 years later while out separately at Jo Jo’s in Downtown Frederick! After running into each other that night, they went on their first date to The Tasting Room, and that’s all it took for these 2 foodies! After dating almost 3 years, Kris planned a surprise scavenger hunt taking her through Frederick to all the important places in their relationship and they ended at Strong Mansion for a gorgeous engagement, complete with both families emerging from behind the stone wall! They celebrated the engagement with a Super Bowl party and the planning began!
