KJ Couples: Allie & Matt

Posted by Angeline Weiss on

We love your love! That is why we have decided to reach out to a few of our amazing Kasia Tribe members, new and returning, to tell their stories. Love is powerful, beautiful, diverse and worthy of honoring through your unique story. By sharing these openly with you, we intend to spread joy in a time when we need it the most. We understand the privilege it is to be a part of your story, and we hope the sincerity of these couples will reflect the very special relationships we aim to have with everyone who walks through our doors (whether in-person or virtually).

Next up, we have Allie & Matt, two absolute sweethearts we are honored to have met, virtually!

When did you know that your partner was THE ONE?

I have always had a hard time feeling “at home” with people, and safe to be myself. I knew Matt was the one when I realized how comfortable I was with him, and didn’t feel like I needed to hide anything about myself.

What is one thing you love about your significant other?

Matt is the true embodiment of unconditional love. He pours his heart and soul into our relationship and our life together, and inspires me every day to live and love more passionately and fearlessly.

What is an activity you love to do together?

We love to go storm / sunset chasing! We are lucky to experience incredible thunderstorms and sunsets during the summer in our city, and have many amazing vantage points that provide views over the city, great for storm/sunset watching!

How did you two meet? (Give us as many details as you’d like!)

I grew up taking dance classes with Matt’s younger sister Lauren, so our families have been connected since the age of about 4 or 5!

Matt and I had eyes for each other even as kids. He found any excuse to come watch his sister and I in dance classes just so we could get a brief hello and pass each other a few cute notes. His sister ended up going to a different dance studio, so we didn’t see each other for many years.  Eventually we were reunited in high school where we dated our Senior year (attending Senior Prom & Graduation together) and Freshman year of college.  As often happens, we drifted apart and needed to go our separate ways to grow and experience life on our own.  Almost 10 years later, Matt reached out to me on a whim and we met for coffee. I fully anticipated we’d have nothing but a friendship, but Matt had other ideas. Even while I tried to play hard to get, Matt swept me off my feet and it was like we had never been apart.

How did he/she propose?

Matt orchestrated a whole plan with my family, on a trip to Hawaii in February of 2020 (right before the whole world shut down!). He passed off my engagement ring to my sister under my nose to bring onto the plane, got it back from her once we checked into the hotel, and planned a grand proposal at a restaurant for the next night. I guess he just couldn’t wait, because he snuck back up to the room to grab the ring the very night we got there, and as the two of us walked the quiet beach in the twilight of the evening, he got down on one knee.

How does Kasia Jewelry fit into your story?

While we did not purchase my engagement ring from Kasia, it was my first choice for selecting wedding bands particularly due to their unique designs and hand made pieces.  While browsing for bands, I entered a giveaway which we actually won! Which of course made Kasia our for-sure pick for my wedding band (Angelica). Since then, we have also purchased Matt’s wedding band (Leo), as well as an additional stacker (Serena) for my ring “story” from Kasia. Their customer service through all of our purchases has been hands down one of the best experiences we’ve ever had from a company, and we look forward to continuing to add Kasia pieces into our collection long into the future. We plan to go back to Hawaii for our wedding this coming October (with our Kasia bands in tow).
