Keely + Philipp
from Oregon (Keely) / Switzerland (Philipp)
"We met on a sunny fall day six years ago at Oregon State University when our friend Kelsea set us up at happy hour. (Note that Keely knew about this set-up all along, while Philipp played the clueless international kid from Switzerland.) Our first date (purely for educational purposes!) happened six weeks later when Philipp shyly asked if Keely wanted to watch German movies to practice her language skills. Philipp brought Swiss chocolate wrapped in engineering graph paper, Keely chose the oh-so-romantic movie Troy, and the next six years flew by... finishing grad school at OSU, driving all our belongings to the east coast (with our cat Coco in tow, with stops at Yellowstone National Park and Mount Rushmore), working towards our PhDs (at the University of Delaware), buying a house together, and lots of traveling and adventures in between. We wouldn't have it any other way. Next up, planning our wedding celebrations in Oregon and Switzerland!"
