Chris and Kelsey met doing what they love. Kelsey and a friend of hers found a sand volleyball group on an app called Meetup and started going. Kelsey started to become a regular at this sand volleyball group that met at a church with friends and her connection with Chris was obvious to everyone from the start. For the proposal, Chris took them back to where it all began and asked Kelsey to marry him on the sand volleyball court where they met.
Their wedding was the sweetest of days with their church family who all pitched in to help make the day happen. The members of the church where they attend helped with set up, made floral arrangements, and served appetizers. The girls got ready on site at the pastor’s house and the guys met up before they came to the church. With a January wedding, weather is always questionable but as guests arrived, the sun was shining, the air was crisp and Chris couldn’t wait to see his bride in white. The church filled with friends and family from all over as Chris and Kelsey exchanged vows. As they made their exit and went outside for photos, Chris whispered to Kelsey, “Your dress couldn’t be more perfect, you look beautiful.” The way Chris cares for Kelsey is incredible and he truly cherishes the woman that she is.
When I first met with Chris and Kelsey, I asked them what is one thing they really want to make sure happens on their wedding day. They said they always envisioned their first dance happening under the lights right after the sun has set. This was something we made sure happened and the moment was perfect! Friends and family shared toasts, laughed, danced, and enjoyed homemade desserts made by the women who attended Kelsey’s bridal shower. When the night came to a close, we sent the bride and groom off in Chris’s uncle’s vintage VW van and it was the coolest end to the day!
