A professional Latin ballroom dancer and choreographer, McAllister has been able to impress lovers of the art a great deal with her skills. Her flourishing career in the entertainment industry has earned her a much deserved public attention but only a few know the details about her love life which she shares with her long-time partner, Carson Mcallister.

McAllister likes to keep his private life private but that is almost impossible as he is married to a very popular entertainer. It is quite easy to get information about him through his wife. Via an Instagram post by Witney, we were able to learn that Carson had lost his father Kevin McAllister. According to her, Kevin Sr. battled with pancreatic cancer before he died in 2018. Before his death, Carson’s wife kept updating her fans and followers about Kevin’s health conditions.

At the expiration of his two-year mission work in Romania, he returned to Utah to take a course at The Southern Utah University. He went into business after his studies, although it is difficult to tell the nature of his business.
How Carson McAllister Met His Wife
Carson and Witney’s love story is an interesting one. They were born in the same year, the same town, and attended the same high school. They met in the 9th grade at Fork High School, Utah. Carson would later confess that he was convinced she was his dream partner as soon as he met her. For him, the dancer is loving and understanding in ways he had never experienced.
They became friends and after a while, the friendship bloomed, allowing them to spend more time with each other. It was only a matter of time before they became lovers. From what we gathered, Carson and Witney eventually started dating in 2011.
When Did They Get Married?
Four years after they started dating, precisely in October 2015, Carson engaged the love of his life. Witney was so thrilled she shared the news on Instagram, expressing that she felt like the luckiest woman in the world, she asserted that Carson is perfect.
The couple got married on the 1st of January 2016, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Salt Lake Temple in Salt Lake City. The reception took place at NOAH’s Event Center in Lindon, Utah. Looking at pictures of the lavish event, no one would believe it was all planned in three months, thanks to the couple’s moms and their celebrity wedding planner, Michael Russo.
One of the highlights of the occasion was Carson McAllister and Witney’s fully choreographed dance performance which they did immediately after they finished their first dance, setting the tone for the rest of the reception.
Carson McAllister and his wife are living together happily, loving and supporting each other at all times. They are often seen at popular events like the Emmy Awards.
They are not parents and almost nothing is known about their plans in that regard. Nonetheless, it has been speculated in some quarters that the couple is yet to have kids because they want to avoid jeopardizing McAllister’s dancing career which will definitely be halted during pregnancy.
