I am thrilled to be a part of Grant and Kelsey's wedding this weekend! But, before they say, "I Do" I wanted to give Kelsey and opportunity to share their love story.
How We Met:
Grant and Kelsey first met when they were in the same 5th grade class. In the summer before 8th grade, Kelsey came home from journalism camp to find a bouquet of roses on her dresser with a note from Grant asking her to be his girlfriend. Kelsey said yes. That was on August 4th, 2006, and the rest is history.
How He Proposed:
Fast forward 8 years, and the couple is in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Grant and Kelsey were with Grant's parents, Mark and Celia, to celebrate the start of their senior year of college. Mark and Celia were having pictures taken for their 30th wedding anniversary, so Grant and Kelsey dressed in color-coordinating outfits to hop in a few pictures with them. Grant and Kelsey went to the lobby to meet them, but Mark and Celia were nowhere to be found. "Maybe they are already on the beach to meet the photographer," Grant said. After walking down the tunnel staircase to the beach, a path of rose petals led them to a gazebo with a romantic dinner table set for two. Grant looked at Kelsey and said, "This is actually all for you." He then got down on his knee and popped the question. Kelsey said yes! Grant picked her up and spun her around. To Kelsey's complete surprise, her parents and brother Chad were standing on the hotel balcony with Grant's parents. Chad, who happens to be a photographer, captured the entire proposal on camera. After taking pictures on the beach, Grant and Kelsey enjoyed a romantic dinner on the beach and watched the sunset over the ocean.
Please help me wish these two a happy marriage and life together!
