Charles Johnson II and Kaylin Kinchion were married on June 1, 2019, the officiant was Kiyan Zakai. The maid of honor was

Naya Jackson and the best man was Devin Johnson. The couple honeymooned in Santa Cruz, Costa Rica.

The couple met on the basketball courts at Coffeyville Community College. They were both with friends and Kaylin happened to notice Charles had a hat on that said “I love Jesus.” She went over to him and asked, “You love Jesus? I love Jesus, too!” And from there, a genuine friendship started.

The Proposal: After Kaylin’s graduation from Wichita State University in May 2018, the couple went to dinner with her family and then on a date to watch the fire at The eeper of the Plains. During our usual conversations, Charles started to get down on one knee. Immediately I told Charles to get up, because I thought he played too much. Then we started talking again and Charles talked about all the ways I complemented his life, still acting nervous, Charles got down on one knee, and asked me to be his wife. I stood there and said “WOW”… at least 3 times. Charles replied, “say yes!” And I told him “yes.” He replied, “Are you sure?” And I said “yes” again.

The Wedding: We wanted a natural, spiritual, nontraditional theme, adding elements of our heritage. This lead to the groomsmen and groom wearing Hebrew garments. The ladies wore jumpsuits, as did the bride. We can both say that the wedding was beautiful and we felt loved and supported on our special day. Decorations were by Le’Posh Weddings by Caela Kinchion.
