We are so excited about April 16! We have grown to love Chelsea and can't wait to work to make her wedding day a day to remember!
Growing up, Brandon and Chelsea lived in towns that were 20 minutes away from each other. They met a few times at church and always knew of each other but never anything more. One night in February 2015, Chelsea went out to listen to a band with some friends. In a spur of the moment decision, Brandon decided to join some of his friends at the same place. According to Chelsea, she made the first move and talked to Brandon first, but Brandon tells a little different story. He claims that he spotted her first and walked over with full intention to talk to her; she just beat him to it! Two days later, they went on their first date to the movies. It didn't take long for the two of them to become crazy about each other.
On September 19, Chelsea's close friend, Jana, surprised Chelsea at work, and she presented Chelsea with a card from Brandon. In the card, Brandon told Chelsea how much he loved her and how much she meant to him. The card also said that she deserved to have a girl's day. He included a gift card for manicures and pedicures for Chelsea and Jana. After the mani/pedi fun, Jana gave Chelsea a second card. The next card again explained how much Brandon loved Chelsea. He also included some money and a note that instructed Chelsea and Jana to go to the Great American Cookie Company to get a snack (cookies are Chelsea's favorite!). After they finished their cookies, Jana had one last envelope for Chelsea. Inside the third card, Brandon again told Chelsea how much he loved her. Money and a note that instructed Chelsea to go shopping for a new outfit and for her to go back to her apartment to put the new outfit on were also included in the third card. Brandon also wrote in the card that Jana and Chelsea were going on a little road trip. Well, this "road trip" consisted of a trip to Chelsea's hometown where they went to her parents' house. Upon their arrival, Chelsea was led by rose petals out to the backyard. There she found Brandon standing inside pink candles in the shape of a heart. Brandon proceeded to tell Chelsea that "he really enjoyed annoying her and that he would like to annoy her for the rest of his life." He then got down on one knee and asked if she would marry him. Tears and a very excited "YES!" followed. Both Chelsea and Brandon's families were there to celebrate the proposal and engagement. In Chelsea's opinion, it couldn't have been any better of a day.
