Our Story

We originally met when we were in the same fourth grade class at Bates Elementary (when we probably started developing a bit of a crush on each other). We got really close in junior high when we were best friends (and maybe a little more than friends at some points...)

Flash forward to early 2020: we had both gotten home from our missions pretty recently and Haylee decided to reach out to Jeff and see how he was doing. We ended up hanging out for the first time in years and had an awesome time together. While it was definitely an interesting experience trying to navigate dating in the middle of a pandemic, we were still able to become best friends and fall in love again pretty quickly. We've had some awesome adventures together so far and are beyond excited to start on the biggest adventure of our lives!

A letter to future Haylee from a time capsule. 13 year old Haylee would be ecstatic to know that not only do I still know Jeff Burnett (and he is still a ginger), but I'm marrying him!! (and Madison and Brooke are going to be bridesmaids!)

A drawing by Whitney Ward, also put in the time capsule. Not sure how accurate it is overall, but at least she predicted that we would end up together! (not ruling out mega-tron as a baby name though)

Before we actually got together after our missions, there was a funny "coincidence" where Haylee's companion Sister Walch was showing her pictures of her best friend Sister Nevarez who was serving in Japan. While looking at this picture of her district, Haylee realized she recognized that weirdo on the right! Jeff was pretty surprised and confused when Sister Nevarez said "Haylee Dahlin says hi!" at their next district council meeting. Sister Walch thinks she definitely deserves some of the credit for our marriage because of her part in "planting the seeds" that helped us eventually get together again
