How did your love story begin? In 2013, we found love in the club on NYE. We met at the infamous Red Revolver nightclub in Scottsdale. Kurt was transitioning from being a collegiate athlete to trying out for the NFL while I was graduating from Arizona State University. A few months went by, and we met up again at, you guessed it, another nightclub. After that outing, we’ve been inseparable ever since. 

Favorite thing about one another: Kurt: My favorite thing about De Anna is her divine light; she’s beautiful inside and out, and her love lights up my life. 

De Anna: There are many things I love about my husband. I can’t just choose one. My favorite traits about Kurt are his thoughtfulness, loving heart, compassion and being a man of God, the true Salt of the Earth. 

Favorite date night: Our first date was Dave & Buster’s at Tempe Marketplace, so we prefer active date nights. Whether working together as a team or playing against each other, we always find ourselves laughing, having light-hearted fun and enjoying each other’s company. 

Favorite tradition you have as a couple: Since our first trip as a couple to Cancun, Mexico, our favorite tradition is collecting keychains to commemorate our travels and remind us of our fun memories.  

What does your happily ever after look like? Happily ever after to us looks like celebrating every milestone together, appreciating the life we’re blessed to have, and cherishing the small moments. Our biggest goal as a couple and business partners is to continue to use our business as a force for good, helping couples with their health and wellness needs to create generational health.
