March Couple Spotlight
Will & Kendra Chestnut
How long have you been married?
Tell us about your journey. From when you met to marriage:
We met at work and quickly became friends. Our jobs were outsourced and we were forced to look for new employment. During the unemployment period, we began spending more time with each other, which strengthened the friendship. We became best friends. I was offered a position at an amazing company and was told I qualified for a lucrative employee referral bonus. I could think of no better person than Will and I was excited to possibly be able to work with him again. We both started new romantic relationships for awhile but both actually failed around the same time. After healing on both ends, the flirting began. I knew I had romantic feelings for Will before the flirting, but wasn’t sure how he felt about me. We decided to go to Benihana and during dinner, Will asked if it was a date or not. I replied “I don’t know.” As the night progressed, it turned out to be the best first date ever! The rest is history.
