Kevin and Katie's story goes way back to 2006, when Katie was a sophomore at the University of New Hampshire in Durham, NH. Kevin would meet Katie briefly at a mutual friend's place in Newmarket (here's looking at you, Justin Roies!) a few months before they would come to know each other well. Kevin was almost instantly smitten with the redhead and in the coming weeks would try to go to events she was going to to get to know her more. Fate would come into play at another mutual friends' house party in Madbury, NH (Ali and Meag!) where Kevin spotted Katie by the fire trying to get warm on a cold, early spring New Hampshire night. Ever the gentleman, Kevin offered Katie his coat which, it would later come to light was not even his but borrowed from a friend. It's the thought that counts! They hung out all that night and as Katie and her friends (Meg and Kyle) headed back to Durham, Kevin sneakily asked them for her "AIM" user name. A memorable night again in Newmarket would follow where Kevin, eager to impress Katie, would organize an  after party after seeing one of their favorite bands perform at the Stone Church. The band, Perpetual Groove stopped by the "Rock House" to play several acoustic covers per request for the guests into the night. At the end of Katie's sophomore year, an intense hurricane hit New England. With only a few days left before Katie was leaving her dorm for summer, Kevin convinced his friend Mark to drive from Newmarket to Durham in heavy downpours at one point even driving over a bridge where the water was reaching the car.
