Keith and Lindsay were set up on what was supposed to be a blind date by their mutual friend Brent. (Lindsay later found out that Brent sent Keith a picture in advance for preapproval…..She did not get that privilege but she did look Keith up on Facebook the day of)
It took Brent about four months to coordinate, but after a few awkward group emails titled “Love is in the air” that he sent to both Keith and Lindsay they had their first date on July 28, 2010 at the Blue Moose in Overland Park, Kansas. The plan to grab a quick drink after work turned into a four hour long date that took both Keith and Lindsay by surprise. Keith promptly emailed Lindsay the next day saying “despite your love for KU, you seem like a great girl and someone I would like to get to know better. I would like to take you out again sometime, if you are up for it.” Of course Lindsay said yes and they haven’t looked back.
Keith and Lindsay take turns each month planning “date night”and December 2011 was his month. He planned a “Groupon date night” that was to consist of dinner and tickets to a comedy club. For dinner he took Lindsay to Blue Moose where they had their first date. They enjoyed dinner and on the way out he proposed in the spot where he first met Lindsay on the blind date. He then proceeded to take her down the street to another restaurant where wonderful family and friends were waiting for a surprise engagement party. They felt all the love and support in the world that night and cherish celebrating their engagement with the ones they love. Needless to say they didn’t make it to the comedy club until a few months later….
In March 2012 Keith and Lindsay made a big move from Overland Park, KS to Chicago. It was after the move and job changes that they decided to start planning their destination wedding in Marco Island, FL. Keith and Lindsay were married at the beautiful Marco Beach Ocean Resort, surrounded by friends and family. After a short rain delay they had an absolutely amazing sunset beach wedding complete with a rainbow!
