Aaron and Kalei met 11 years ago and had an instant connection. Due to the circumstances of their meeting, Aaron denied Kalei's interest in furthering their relationship because they had both had a few drinks (there was one, secret kiss - just saying). Kalei was so offended, she didn't really speak to Aaron for 8 years, though they flirted at the occasional gathering. After encouragement from Aaron's sister (kalei's BFF), Aaron decided to visit Portland in 2012; Kalei agreed to meet up and show him around. The reunion started with the most heartfelt hug; that was it. Aaron moved to Portland 6 months later (after making the 6 hour journey to visit every weekend for 6 months). Since then , Kalei & Aaron have mourned the loss of a dog together, bought a house together and inherited a wonderful, sweet dog together. Aaron proposed New Years Day 2015 (he wanted to do it on New Years eve but Kalei fell asleep - Lame!) Next, they marry on New Years Eve 2015. Hoping to have an amazing NYE bash with friends and family!
