A little under a decade ago, Mackenzie and Travis met in Austin, Texas and shortly went on their first date. However, it wasn’t until four years later that they started to get serious and realized they had everything they ever wanted right in front of each other. So Travis surprised Mackenzie with a sweet backyard proposal at their best friend’s house. The couple planned to attend a “house-warming party” afterward, but Mackenzie couldn’t contain her excitement and wanted to stop by her parent’s house prior to the event. Surprisingly enough, when her parents opened the door, the couple’s families and friends were there waiting to celebrate their engagement. “It was so special and amazing because I have never been surprised in my entire life, and this day completely blew me away,” says Mackenzie.
