Brooklyn Park Engagement Proposal: Joey and Kelsey

For Joseph and Kelsey, it all started with a ‘swipe right’ on Tinder.

After a few days of talking, they went on their first date on March 5, 2014 at Bowl & Barrel, an upscale restaurant and bowling alley in Dallas.

Kelsey purposefully showed up 15 minutes early, so HE would have to be the one to find her (and to this day Joey says he remembers walking in and immediately spotting “the girl in the green coat”). After the initial awkward hello’s, they ended up bowling and enjoying each other’s company for several hours.

Before they knew it, it was midnight and the waiter came over to tell them it was closing time. Joey was immediately struck by her beauty, but it was her quick wit over text messages that drew him in. There was just something about Kelsey that made him need to meet her.

On their first date, she kept asking to check her phone, and normally it would have been a turn off, except she was checking the SMU vs Louisville basketball score. A girl who was interested in sports? Joey couldn’t ask for more.

They knew their relationship was something special in July 2014 when they went to Lake Travis in Austin, for the Fourth of July, but they both officially knew during their trip in Paris, France in October 2014.

“Maybe it was the romance in Paris, but something on that trip made me realize I wanted to spend the rest of my life traveling and going on adventures with this guy.”

And Joey couldn’t agree with Kelsey more and surprised her with a diamond ring at Brookyln Bridge Park in New York!
