Documenting Love: Jason & Kevin's Story

Welcome to our Documenting Love series where we capture people's love stories through photos and the written word. This may be one of our favorite weekly series! Check out the gallery and read the couples love story below. Keep in mind that we ask the couples to answer the questions separately so we can draw parallels between their experiences and, you know, say a collective, "Ahhhhhhh!" If you or someone you know wants to be featured in this series, please get in touch with us, hello@seattlerefined.com.

Jason
My first memory of Kevin is a picture of him with his two daughters on OKCupid.

Kevin
My first memory of Jason was his dashing good looks and his bow tie as I came up the escalator to meet him for dinner on our first date.

Jason
We met at Matt’s at Redmond Town Center.

Kevin
We met online via OKCupid but our first date was at Matt’s in Redmond Town Center.

Jason
I’m proud of the way he has taken control of his health/fitness. He is an inspiration.

Kevin
Many things come to mind, but I’ll say I’m most proud of his commitment to being a non-smoker and non-drinker which goes towards his overall commitment to health and fitness.

Jason
We had a breakthrough pretty early on in the relationship, and I then knew that my heart had fallen.

Kevin
I knew I loved Jason pretty early on in our relationship…I remember saying to myself that I was going to marry him, probably just weeks into our relationship.

Jason
I like the way we communicate and the way we have common interests. I also enjoy the way health and fitness have become a cornerstone of our activities as a couple.

Kevin
We truly enjoy each other’s company and have shared goals and focus on our health and nutrition. Just about everything we do, we do together.

Jason
He told me he had proposed to someone in the past, so the onus was on me. I bought the ring in December 2017 and proposed on Christmas Day.

Kevin
I was previously married (to a woman) and I remember telling Jason that I had already asked a person to marry me once, so it was on him this time. This past Christmas, with his mom and my kids over at the house for Christmas, he popped the question by putting the ring in a pair of Nike’s and getting down on one knee. It was all caught on video.

Jason
The thing I love most about Kevin is how kind he is.

Kevin
What I love most about Jason is his sweetness and caring nature.

Jason
My favorite qualities in Kevin are his easy going nature, honesty, and integrity.

Kevin
Favorite qualities would be his sense of humor, dedication to health and fitness, an exceptional conversationalist.

Jason
There are too many sexy qualities about Kevin to count, but I’ll start with his eyes.

Kevin
His physique is beautiful and it goes with a very loving heart

Jason
My favorite ritual of ours is a hug in the morning before coffee.

Kevin
My favorite ritual is our mornings before going to rowing – he is always up before me to prepare coffee and a bite to eat which we enjoy together at the kitchen table.
