After Mary Wyatt Hines attended a family friend’s 49th birthday costume party with good friend Kelsey Kiser, they went to their favorite local spot, Fat Harry’s, dressed as the Doublemint Gum twins. While at the bar, Mary Wyatt met Kerry Steven Milano Jr. for the first time. The two hit it off, and one of Mary Wyatt’s coworkers, Missy Depp, had the bright idea of setting them up on a date. Mary Wyatt was hesitant to go on their first date but agreed to go to Kerry’s house for a casual dinner, to which she brought one of her best girlfriends. Kerry prepared fresh fish that he caught over the weekend for the group and, at the end of the night, invited Mary Wyatt out to dinner later that week. From then on the two were inseparable.
Two years later, in 2011, Kerry proposed to Mary Wyatt at the Ritz-Carlton Davenport Lounge before dinner. Kerry presented her with a cushion cut ring, and family and friends joined after dinner to celebrate.
After the wedding, Kerry and Mary Wyatt went to St. Bart’s for one week. The two reside in Old Metairie, where Kerry is the owner of Delta Marine Logistics and Mary Wyatt is a sales person at Em’s Boutique.
