McKinley and Tyler met at Texas A&M University. Over the summer, they both ended up working at Sky Ranch Summer Camp where they were conveniently assigned to the same age group and shared the same time off. During their off-time, McKinley and Tyler explored Mineola, Texas, and soon he expressed to her that he would like to date post-camp. Under a fireworks-lit sky at Grapevine Lake, he asked her to be his girlfriend.

Zambia, Africa, holds a special place in McKinley’s heart. Her father passed away when she was in high school and her family raised money to build a house for orphans in Zambia named after her father, Kyle’s House. After dating for three years, her family and Tyler booked a trip to Zambia to see Kyle’s House and their precious boys who live there. McKinley’s mother organized a professional photo shoot for the family. For some reason, her mother and siblings slipped out of frame until only McKinley and Tyler were left standing. He hugged her tightly
