They weren't exactly chummy after their first meeting. Chelsea and Drew worked the same summer job on their break from college, and in Drew's own words: "For some reason I was totally dedicated to my summer job. I am such a perfectionist." That was the problem. Chelsea describes Drew's dedication as "enthusiasm" and it totally overwhelmed her.
"He acted like he knew everything and his way was the best way to do whatever task," she said. "He will tell you he was the manager but really he was a cafe associate just like me."
Something changed, however, because after that first summer of working together, the two stayed in touch when they went back to their respective schools. Chelsea realized that Drew is just super warm and friendly and cares extra about everything he does.
It took a couple more years before they would even start dating, but there was no looking back once they started. Their relationship even survived long distance after Drew graduated from college before Chelsea.
"I love Drew's smile," Chelsea said. "It is irresistible and makes it so hard to get mad at him. I also love his sense of humor. He knows how to make me laugh and can brighten any mood."
Chelsea and Drew are the type of people that feel like your friends 10 minutes after meeting them. They're both so friendly, and I've loved getting to know them this past year! Thank you for always being so awesome, you two. I can't wait to see where life takes you (and what kind of dog you settle on)!
This little flower girl just thought Chelsea was the coolest. I have to agree with her!
Chelsea's dress was so pretty!
I love that Drew escorted his mom down the aisle.
And THIS is the face of an excited groom ...
I have my friend Brittany to thank for that wide-angle shot up there. :)
Love this bridge in the Flats. Such a great backdrop!
You too, Drew! ;)
And then it was off to the Cultural Gardens ...
This is another favorite. You nailed it, Drew!
I loved shooting at The Ballroom at Park Lane! Melissa and her team are fabulous!
