Kelsey and Ben’s dreamy summer wedding ~ 8-6-21

How and or where did you meet?
Ben and I met at a Super Bowl watch party in 2015 then reconnected in 2018 and started dating.

How did you get proposed to?
I bought a house in September 2020 and was set to close on the 25th. Ben suggested that we take professional family photos with our dog at the park so I can have those pictures to hang in my new house. Just as we were wrapping up the pictures, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I’m so thankful we have those pictures so now we can relive that day forever through those wonderful images.

What was your favorite memory from your wedding day?
My favorite memory from our wedding day was our grand entrance into our reception. Seeing all of our friends and family jumping up and down cheering for us as we were introduced was the best feeling. We felt so loved, celebrated, and supported and it meant the absolute world to us.

Normans Bridal truly is the best of the best and it was a great experience overall! We got married in MO but live in CO and they were very accommodating throughout the whole process. The service was absolutely amazing and I can’t recommend them enough!
