Kendall and Alyssa met in college where both of them were studying music. They had been friends since they met, but they both knew there was something there! Alyssa graduated and began teaching in Bunceton, MO. Kendall continued to study for an additional year and found himself calling Alyssa quite frequently at night.
Finally, Kendall asked Alyssa to go to a convention with him in November of 2010. She wasn’t able to go, but they began talking even more and eventually started dating.
“December of 2011 we went on a typical winter date in Kansas City where we went ice skating at Crown Center and then had dinner on the Country Club Plaza. This was a dinner to remember, as we ended up getting engaged in front of an entire dining room of cheering guests!” They spent the rest of the night celebrating with friends and calling everyone they knew to tell them their exciting news! Their August, 2012 wedding day had perfect weather, was held at a perfect venue, with perfect friends to celebrate with. “Everything was perfect!” The happily married couple have moved into their first home and have one spoiled puppy to keep them busy!
"Especially Jewelry made our night even more magical. Our time with them was so pleasant. From the minute we set foot in the store, we were treated as family, not as customers. Prices and warranties didn’t matter because we were given all the attention and personalization we needed. I don’t feel we would have been as satisfied had we gone to other jewelry stores. They have made life long customers out of the Holsten's and we could not be more thankful." Kendall
