Larry & Kelly

Hi! We are Larry & Kelly. Our journey together began in 2009 when we both reluctantly agreed to allow a coworker to setup us up on a date. However, she proved to be right, and it didn’t take long to realize we were each other’s best friend and wanted to begin a life together and expand our family unit. We love engaging with the natural world around us, through boating, beaching, running, hiking, cycling, camping, travel, creating art and mostly by any activity that brings us laughter. Larry grew up in rural Ohio, served in the Navy, and started a business focused on IT and business system support. Kelly grew up in coastal Virginia, and now works in communications for a state agency with a long history of prior work in nonprofits. We live our lives based on the simple values of kindness, integrity and love.

Hi there! We are Liz & Mike from Richmond, VA. Our adventure began in college in 2006, where we met through mutual friends. We kept in touch after graduation, and eventually dated long distance. After getting engaged, Liz moved from Baltimore, MD and we began our life here together in Richmond. We’ve been happily married since 2016 and have been hoping to build our small family for quite some time.
