Finding love at Bella Vista: Harold and Elisa Kuphaldt’s #MySJLoveStory

When Harold met Elisa, he knew right away that there was something special about her, but they were just two teenagers trying to get through high school.

Harold Kuphaldt was a senior at Bella Vista High School and Elisa Rodriguez was a sophomore. They started dating right away. When Harold graduated high school and moved away for college, the two high school sweethearts stayed in touch through letters and long distance phone calls.

The two Bella Vista love birds just celebrated their 30 year wedding anniversary. Check out their #MySJLoveStory.
