Despite now undertaking a doctoral degree in psychology at Pepperdine University, Mr. Song, 26, continued to land D.J. gigs. In the summer of 2016 after Ms. Kinsolving’s graduation, while watching their favorite D.J. in a Las Vegas club, the duo became an “official” couple.
Within weeks, the two would “unofficially” move in together. While working 16-hour days to help support his family in Surprise, Ariz., after his father’s double-knee surgery, Mr. Song was forced to forfeit his place in student housing. In one summer, he and Ms. Kinsolving had gone from friends to lovers living under the same roof. Just over six months later, they would sign their first lease together in Los Angeles.
“I never thought about what I should be doing in my 20s,” Mr. Song said. “I realized there would never be another opportunity to be with somebody as unbelievable as Bailey. I got the home run ball at age 21. I loved loving her.”
On July 31, 2020, he proposed at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa near Palm Springs, Calif., after completing his master’s degree earlier that month from Pepperdine University. Ms. Kinsolving was instructed to dress up for Mr. Song’s “graduation pictures,” and led to a table in the middle of the golf course laden with champagne, roses and a note to distract her while Mr. Song dropped to one knee. Last month, ahead of the August 2021 ceremony planned at Ms. Kinsolving’s family home in Marin County, Calif., the couple married in Las Vegas in an ode to the relationship’s origins.
While the impending wedding will be attended by 100 guests, only their best man and maid-of-honor, and partners, bore witness as Mr. Song and Ms. Kinsolving said “I do” at the Little White Wedding Chapel on June 19, 2021. Pastor Eugene P. Lewis, ordained by the Lion of Judah Ministries in Nevada, officiated. For the first time since Mr. Song fatefully affirmed the pair’s mutual attraction at the Pizza Press, the couple could catch their breath.
