Kris & Kayley
Our Love Story
Kris & I met at the start of our freshman year at The College of New Jersey. We were assigned to adjacent rooms and introduced ourselves to one another during an icebreaker game at the sand volleyball court. A strong friendship developed and continued to grow over that first year. When we both became available the fall of our sophomore year, it didn’t take much time for us to realize that this was it! (Many people told us they could tell all along that there was a spark between us…)
This past summer, had a vacation planned to Martha’s Vineyard with friends, and Kris planned to propose at some point over the trip. Kris never buys anything without researching and choosing the perfect product – and ring shopping was no different. He picked out a gorgeous ring and ordered it in advance so it would be here before we left. Well, things didn’t go as planned, and after multiple postponed shipments, Kris ultimately had to have the overnighted to Martha’s Vineyard and sneak off to “pick up some lunch” (talk about stress!).
The group decided to go see a sunset on the beach, only one member of the group knowing Kris’ plan. Everything fell into place: I had my camera, we ended up driving to the not-so-crowded beach rather than the closer one, and friends poured glasses of champagne just for fun (which Kris proceeded to drink VERY quickly). He asked my friend to take a picture of us and as we posed, got down on one knee! He opened up a seashell with the big question inside and, after what I say felt like a split second, and what Kris says felt like forever, I said, “Yes! Of course!” Photography being one of my hobbies, Kris knew capturing this once in a lifetime moment would mean everything to me. These photos priceless & I look forward to spending a lifetime together documenting more memories.
