Brady and Berry Engagement
Kayla Brady and Chuck Berry were engaged to be married on Sept. 1, 2012 at Matanuska Glacier. The couple plan to wed on May 4, 2013 in Niles, Mich.
The bride-to-be is the daughter of Michael and Theresa Brady of Edwardsburg, Mich. She attends college at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Mich., and plans to graduate in April 2013.
The groom-to-be is the son of Chuck Berry of Edwardsburg. He is an Airborne Ranger currently stationed at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.
Chuck proposed while on a hike with friends.
“His friends told me to go over where Chuck was so he could get some good pictures,” Kayla wrote. “So I walk out there and the view is simply gorgeous. I am just caught up in the moment with how beautiful everything around me is. I turn around to see more, and there he was — down on one knee asking me to marry him. I said yes! He made sure everything was perfect and the proposal pictures were beautiful!
“We attended the same high school but never really hung out. Years later he was home on leave and asked if I wanted to hang out. So we did and we had a great time. Then he had to leave only a couple days later. Since that day we know there was chemistry there. We began talking all day long. The more we talked the more in love we felt. It’s crazy that we fell in love with each other before sharing a first kiss.”
