A LITTLE BACKSTORY
Love Story offers a professional, boutique-style matchmaking service to sophisticated clients with unparalleled service in selectivity, style and discretion while nurturing an authentically crafted love story just for you. We have read between the lines, dotted the “i’s” with little hearts and crossed the “t’s” with cupid’s arrows.
Our niche is matching highly accomplished individuals who have no problem dating on their own but desire a more curated approach to finding their exceptional partner. In addition to our deep roots surrounding our headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona, we match clients globally from coast to coast, and beyond to Europe and the Middle East.
Specialities include intensive searches for Ivy League graduates, Foreign Service officers and niche clients, such as those geographically “challenged.” Have two homes and desire someone with flexibility? Live in a small town and having trouble finding someone at your caliber? Have generational wealth and wish to meet someone from a similar circle? You need a boutique matchmaking team that’s willing to conduct an actual search for your match vs. relying on a limited pre-existing database.
Meet Kelly Vockell, Owner of Love Story Matchmaking
Since 2007, Kelly has been a pioneer in the luxury matchmaking industry, helping elite men and women find the love their lives. Kelly brings to bear a uniquely robust network, the result of nearly two-decades of industry connections and over a decade of leadership positions on behalf of her alma mater, Yale University. Recognized as an articulate industry expert, Kelly has been featured across TV, print, and radio, including FoxNews, CNN, and Money Radio.
When Kelly graduated from Yale she never imagined she’d be a matchmaker; and yet her college roommate was her very first match a few years after graduation. And, as the story goes, a passion was borne. She pivoted from her executive role in tech to devote her life to making a direct and meaningful impact on people’s lives. (Her roommate and her match-turned-husband have celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary!)
After more than a decade serving on the executive teams of the largest matchmaking firms in the country, Kelly decided that clients deserved a more personalized service that would yield superior results. Whereas standard industry practice is to assign 35-50 clients per matchmaker, Kelly vehemently believes that this diminishes results. As such, Kelly strictly limits her clients to 10 lucky individuals at any time.
Kelly is a mom of 2, an avid adventure traveler, and a USPA handicapped polo player. She serves as the President of the Yale Club of Phoenix and on the Board of the Ivy League Council. As a divorcee herself, she can relate firsthand to the unique challenges of finding love in mid-life in the modern era.
More than anything, Kelly is rabidly passionate about delivering on the promise to her clients. When intelligence and passion are combined, anything is possible!
“…I have succeeded as gloriously as anyone who’s ever lived: I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul; and to me, this has always been enough.”
