Kelli and Jeff
How We Met
Jeff and I were set up by a mutual friend 4 years ago and since then we’ve spent holidays together, gotten our own apartment, and shared plenty of inside jokes.
How He Asked
In March 2017 we went on vacation to visit my family in the U.K. and after spending a couple days with them we traveled to Paris as Jeff had never been. We ended up renting the smallest hotel room I’ve ever seen, within the first 24 hours we found bugs in the bathroom and could barely move around which was extra romantic. After spending the day visiting the Louvre, walking the catacombs and seeing the Eiffel Tower sparkle in the moonlight we headed back to our tiny room where I took a shower to wash the day off.
After my shower, I opened the door and found Jeff on one knee staring at me. I was sure he’d found more bugs and I panicked, asking frantically if there were bugs near the bed. But instead, he smiled and pulled a ring box from behind his back. He asked me to marry him and I, of course, said yes. He’d planned on proposing the next day when we visited Disneyland Paris at the end of the day when the fireworks went off but he was nervous they’d pull out the box going through security and he’d have to propose in the security line. So instead we got a picture in front of Sleeping Beauty’s castle to announce to our family and friends!
