“From the moment we locked eyes, I knew we’d be archenemies,” says McKenzie, who met Spencer during high school in Baltimore. For years they wished their mutual friends would drop the other from the group, but eventually they started to see what those friends saw. One weekend after college, McKenzie agreed to visit Spencer in Charlotte and, while there, he suggested an official date. Sparks flew. Almost two years later, having just moved together to Chicago, Spencer proposed at the Buckingham Fountain. They spent a year planning their DC nuptials, and decided to wed at the Carnegie Institution for Science, where McKenzie carried a bouquet wrapped with a piece of her mother’s wedding dress from 35 years earlier and the couple jumped the broom as newlyweds.
