Kenzie Staloch and Drew Bennett, both from Columbia, will be married on August 5, 2017, at the Firestone Baars Chapel on the Stephens College campus, with a reception to follow at Kimball Ballroom.
Kenzie graduated from Rock Bridge High School in 2010 and did her undergraduate studies at the University of Mississippi. She graduated in 2014 with her degree in marketing and management. Drew, also a Rock Bridge alum, graduated in 2008. He did his undergraduate studies at Columbia College and graduated in 2012 with his degree in marketing and management.
The future Mr. and Mrs. met during their time at Rock Bridge High School. Although Drew was two years older than Kenzie, they had several mutual friends throughout high school. After Kenzie’s graduation from Ole Miss, she returned to Columbia where the two ran into each other. With some encouragement from friends, the two decided they were “more than just good friends.” Drew proposed to Kenzie on October 21, 2016.
The bride’s parents are Michael and Melanie Staloch of Columbia. The groom’s parents are Barry Bennett and Kirstie Hook Ruffolo also of Columbia.
