Introducing Mr. Kerri Miles and Ms. Danica Ward.
Kerri and Danica met at their workplace while working as teachers for the Liberal, Kansas school systems. Kerri was teaching 6th grade at Sunflower Intermediate school, while Danica was a 4th grade teacher at Cottonwood Intermediate school. It was Kerri's first year teaching 6th grade and there was a meeting at Cottonwood. As a part of the meeting he and twenty plus teachers were observing Danica and a few other teaching during their reading small group time. After the observation of the other teachers, Kerri went back to the meeting and told some of his coworkers that he was interested in Danica and asked if they knew about her. One of Kerri's coworkers informed Danica of Kerri's interest in her and didn't drop the topic with either of them until Kerri reached out to Danica.
The couple have known each other since September of 2014 and have dated off and on until Kerri asked for Danica's hand in marriage and they became engaged. The engagement was quite the story. On October 20, 2018 at their home, Danica thought she was helping plan a suprise birthday party for Kerri. Unbeknownst to her, he had contacted her family and friends and told them to be at the house at 2 o'clock because he was going to propose to Danica. Kerri and Danica's daughter, Emmalee, share a birthday so he took Emmalee and their son, Braxden, to the store for Emmalee to pick out her birthday present. When he came back he walked into the kitchen with Braxden and everyone sang Happy Birthday to Kerri. Then Kerri took of Braxden's jacket to reveal a shirt that said, "Will you marry my daddy?" and he got down on one knee and proposed to Danica.
Kerri and Danica have three children. They have a daughter, Emmalee, that is ten years old, Aubree, their daughter, is seven years old and Braxden, their son, who is two years old.
Kerri is currently working as a physical education teacher at Liberal High School and Danica works as a first grade teacher at Prairie View Elementary School.
The couple is planning a wedding and have chosen the colors of pink, orange and yellow. Danica loves Tiger Lily's and plans to include those in the flowers. The Bride and Groom have chose a unique wedding theme of a Mexican Fiesta. They plan on serving tacos with rice and elote corn at their dinner and will include low-key touches of the fiesta theme to go with the food they are serving and color scheme.
The Bride plans to have six bridesmaids, two junior bridesmaids and one flower girl, while the groom is still unsure of his groomsmen but plans to include two junior groomsmen and a ring bearer.
Hoping to venture to New York on their honeymoon, the couple plans to wait until this summer or next to take their trip while they have time off from school
Kerri and Danica are planning to join their lives as husband and wife on July 13, 2019 in Liberal, Kansas with a reception and dance following.
