Her cousin went on and on about this guy he was friends with named Justin, and how Kelsey should meet him because he was certain they’d hit it off. The opportunity finally presented itself and Kelsey distinctly recalls her initial reaction being “Who is this super annoying guy?” He however believes it was love at first sight. However annoying he may have seemed didn’t matter, because Kelsey had a boyfriend so she never gave it a second thought. Time passed and and Kelsey eventually became single, and then one day Justin showed up on her front door step, and now 7 years later – they’ve been together ever since.
Their relationship is very sweet and comical. Lots of eye rolls and nudges and “that’s not how it happened”. Like how Kelsey insists Justin stood her up for their very first date, and how he insists she stood him up and he ended up watching Chicken Little in a theater full of 10 year old girls all alone. So when she tells the story of their engagement and she says that they were having a mild disagreement that night because he was running late for their date, you know that they’ll be 80 years old telling their grandkids these stories and still disagreeing on what actually transpired. What IS clear, is that night when they showed up at The Melting Pot in Chesterfield and he took her over to a park area and dropped down on one knee – even though the details may be blurry and even though his version may be a little different than hers – she without question or hesitation said yes.
The two are planning a wedding for fall of 2013 and look forward to a lifetime of teasing, playful bickering, and the sweetest love that is never ending. Enjoy a few of their engagement photos!!
