Chelsey and Jeff


Sunday January 12th, 2014 ~ I vividly recall the constant "bings" which sounded my cell phone during the final three hours of my long 12-hour shift at the hospital. The sounds were simply notifications of a Jeff Ruston messaging me - a guy whom, at that point, was simply a compatible swipe right; He was a Tinder Match. Four years later, and I still find myself laughing as I reflect on this mystery man's profile which entailed photographs of everything but his handsome face. Though his profile was not fluffed with his charismatic self, I was thoroughly impressed with his persistent enthusiasm to catch my phone number.

After untiring and determined attempts, I assumed Jeff earned a phone call. Our immediate conversation was effortless, buoyant, and comfortable. Lost in our ability to converse with such ease, I impulsively questioned, "Are you a spontaneous person?" It was the sole question that changed our momentum and sparked a mutual curiosity. Jeff had agreed to a spontaneous blind date.

The next day: Monday January 13th, 2014. Section 101, Row 31, Seats 3 and 4. Toronto Raptors vs. Milwaukee Bucks. It was our first date, and the first moments of our love story.

Reflecting back, it is no surprise that our engagement was as spontaneous as our first date. Monday November 14th, 2016 ~ A last minute and an unforgettable vacation to Las Vegas, Nevada. Vibrant lights. Flamboyant noise. Enjoyment. Romance. Las Vegas was perfect. One starry night, Jeff propped down on one knee next to the glorious Bellagio Fountain display. A "Yes!" proceeded. The rest is history!
