Dixon's Cutest Couple is Mike Veliz and his fiancé Kelli Cherry. Congratulations to the both of them!
The love birds first met at the G Street Pub in Davis over three year ago and have since been inseperable says Kelli.
"To say he is perfect is perhaps a bit of a stretch, but he is perfect for me," she said. "As a pair, we have been able to conquer so much together. We have gone through many life transitions - graduating college, pounding the pavement together to find a 'real' job, buying a house in Dixon (best decision so far!), adopting three wondering children (the furry kind), and now we are recently engaged."
Shorly after waking the stage at his commencement ceremony back in December, Mike popped the question to Kelli and she happily accepted. The wedding date is set for September 21.
"We are thrilled, we moved to Dixon almost a year ago and we are in love and we are happy to honored as Dixon’s Cutest Couple," said Mike, 26.
"I cannot wait to find out what our lives have in store," said Kelli, 24. "It is for this reason that I think we are the cutest couple in Dixon."
Dixon agrees Kelli and Mike, Dixon agrees.
