Kelly and Chris
How We Met
We met in college on an intramural volleyball team that our fraternity and sorority created. Before a playoff game, we decided to get in some extra practice because we both weren’t very good, but we found out we had a lot of other things in common. We started talking more and eventually started dating. Since then, we have moved in, adopted a dog, graduated, travelled, graduated again, and started our careers by each other’s side.
How He Asked
A few weeks before Christmas, Chris told me he was setting up a time lapse video while we were decorating our Christmas tree. When he asked me to turn around so he can turn on the lights and we can look at them together, I was so clueless. Although I had been secretly hoping to start the next chapter in our lives together, Chris had been throwing me off this whole year saying we were too young, too poor, and it was too soon. Little did I know it was all an elaborate plan and he proposed December 4, 2016 after 3 years of dating! He was so nervous he held the box upside down but we’ve honestly never been happier.
