Our Story

Blaine and Kelly met in January of 2015 at a church party held in Discovery Bay, California. However, their relationship did not begin to progress until what Kelly describes as "THE most embarrassing moment of [her] ENTIRE life" took place.

On August 21, 2015, both Kelly and Blaine showed up for a YSA volleyball game with their ward. Blaine, wearing practical gym shorts and a tee shirt, and Kelly, characteristically in fashionable black pants, sweater, and a leather jacket - clearly there on a mission.

After a night full of spikes and sets, but little in the way of conversation, Kelly was surprised when Blaine walked by her and whispered something in her ear. "What?" she replied. "I think you ripped your pants," Blaine repeated. Aghast at her wardrobe malfunction and sure she would never be able to face Blaine again, she recounted the humiliating experience to her closest family and friends, made all the worse because she was already crushing on this good-looking guy.

Of course that's how all the best romances begin.

Kelly reached out to Blaine to thank him for saving her from worse embarrassment, and he responded by asking her out to dinner and a scenic drive.

These dinners and drives continued over the next twelve months and many nights were spent together as Blaine cooked in exchange for help studying for the police academy. Nights that paid off in May when Kelly proudly accompanied Blaine to his graduation where he became one of Oakland's finest police officers.

The conclusion of their courtship was only slightly less embarrassing than the beginning. At 2 o'clock in the morning of September 17, 2016, Blaine showed up after a long night at work to put a ring on a disheveled, bare faced and pajama clad Kelly's finger - she excitedly accepted.

They are now happily planning their (hopefully not embarrassing) wedding celebration, and eagerly await the day when they are sealed together for time and all eternity.
