America's Most Captivating Couples

Kelly & Elise

New York, New York

Kelly Kane, 27, Local Program Manager, Alloy Media & Marketing

Elise Carlson, 24, Assistant Manager, Alloy Media & Marketing

Kelly and Elise are both from the same town in upstate New York, but it wasn’t until they moved to NYC that they met through Elise’s sister. "It works great because we get to see our families during the holidays and also spend time with each other." Kelly is a sports fiend and die-hard Giants fan who plans to become a New York State Trooper. Elise is passionate about music, and hopes for a career in music supervision. The couple loves spending time with their boxer, Diz, reading books to each other and traveling. "We’ve backpacked through Peru for two weeks, jumped on a plane to the Bahamas for a long weekend, and rented a house on the Jersey Shore all last summer." More importantly, "we make time for other people in our lives as well as ourselves and each other, and that’s the best way to keep a healthy relationship strong."
