It is always the best when two teachers meet at at school and end up falling in love! Welcome to the blog Kelsea and Luke. The two of them both met at Sandburg Middle School, where a co-worker introduced both of them. They like rival colleges- Luke Ohio State and Kelsea Penn State, so that was the beginning of some fun conversations...The two of them would work out after work in the gym and eventually started dating!
How did Luke pop the question? Well I have to say he did a pretty good job...While in their favorite vacay spot, Las Vegas! Luke surprised Kelsea by booking their favorite hotel The Cosmopolitan. After a wonderful night out they went to their balcony that overlooks the Bellagio Fountains. While the fountains were going off on a beautiful night, Luke got down on one knee and asked Kelsea to marry him!
When they contacted me to photograph their wedding at Harbour View I was excited for two reasons. One, I love photographing at Harbour View, the staff there and venue is always so perfect! Two, Kelsea and Luke were so kind and easy to talk to back and forth about everything that was needed to prepare for the day. The day of the wedding Kelsea was so laid back and full of smiles. Luke was awesome! Not every guy likes to do photos, but Luke did a great job! The entire wedding party looked amazing, and of course Kelsea looked stunning in her dress!
The ceremony was beautiful and on a perfect day. I loved how they had so many family members involved in the wedding ceremony. You could really tell how important family is to them, and I love that. The reception was a blast! When you have people dancing like crazy and enjoying themselves it really makes my job 10x better! I loved the song her mom sang and the hilarious song Kelsea's brothers made up and even used props during it! I was cracking up! The reception was a huge party the entire night. I enjoyed it so much I decided to stay longer to get some more photos and to get the sparkler exit for them. I love weddings like these when the party is in full motion the entire night!
I am really happy for you Kelsea and Luke. I hope you had a wonderful time in Italy on your honeymoon. I wish both of you nothing but happiness in your life. Congratulations on getting married. I hope you love your photos and thank you for having me as your photographer!
Congratulations again Kelsea and Luke!
