Chelsea & Mitch - Elegant wedding at the Patrick Henry Ballroom

Chelsea & Mitch’s wedding day was perfect in every aspect. When she walked down the aisle, in her elegant gown by Essence of Australia, it was a really emotional moment for everyone and especially for Mitch. The ceremony and the reception took place in the classic and charming wedding Patrick Henry Ballroom. After the first dances, the amazing band took over and the whole night was just filled with dancing and fun!

How they met:   The night they met he was with a group of his new work friends, coincidentally some of her friends as well.  They were introduced by a friend that evening, and had an instant connection.  They went to Billy's restaurant Courtyard and talked all evening.  His sister knew they had met, and knew Chelsea,  so she invited them both out that weekend to hang out with their mutual friends. By Sunday of that weekend, she knew he was special and potentially "the one"!  

How he proposed: Outside of Billy's (where they first met) in front of their immediate family!  She had planned to get their families together for a brunch at Billy's, little did she know Mitch had bigger plans!  They turned the corner to head to the front door of Billy's and their families were waiting outside to go in.  Next thing she knows, Mitch is down on one knee proposing!  It was very special! Then they went inside and had a celebratory brunch (with PLENTY of champagne!) with their families!

Favorite moments on their wedding day:

His: When he saw Chelsea in her wedding dress, walking down the aisle.
Hers: “Our ceremony. I loved and lingered on every word Pastor Brian said , and just entering into this covenant with Mitch was something i had been hoping for for a long time”.
