In the midst of an unforgiving global pandemic, Crystal and Jason’s love story unfolded with a right swipe on Bumble. Their journey was nothing short of extraordinary. It was evident from the moment they locked eyes on their very first date. Where a hand-hold turned into an undeniable pull to one another. And lots of small shared moments were spent getting to know each other in the months that followed. A pandemic and several dates later, Jason proposed to Crystal with a romantic rendition of “20 Questions.” The final question led to an immediate “yes.” Then, a few weeks later, they celebrated their love during their sunset elopement at Artist Point. We were lucky enough to witness it all. Here is the story of their love.
Their Love Story
It all started in the middle of a Pandemic. When two perfect strangers logged onto a dating site and let fate and their best intentions take the lead. Their first date was at a local restaurant. When they got to know each other behind masks – due to the state of the world. Jason wore a fuzzy orange one that Crystal thought was ridiculous but loved it all the same. She was quiet and sweet but shy, and he was engaging and offered his own version of nervous ramblings. They balanced each other perfectly. By the end of the date, they felt an undeniable pull toward each other. They shared the most incredible first kiss and left hoping to see one another again despite the restrictions.
Thankfully, they could meet for walks and dates here and there and, eventually, committed to one another. It was a slow and steady but beautiful love story.
A few years later, during an evening stroll at the Morton Arboretum. Jason concocted a romantic game of 20 questions. When “marriage” became the answer, he sealed the deal with a ring.
This occurred just a few weeks before they contacted us to photograph their sunset elopement at Artist Point.
