Chelsea and Pete met 6 years to the day of their wedding day. Chelsea was going to visit her sister in Connecticut for new years (Cassidy), and Pete was going to visit his best friend (Chelsea’s sister’s now husband, Thomas). They hit it off right away, did long distance dating for 3 years, then moved to Orlando to be together. Pete proposed at a family cottage on Lake Michigan that they go to every year. He took Chelsea to lunch one afternoon, and on our their way back, Pete insisted they’d walk out to the lighthouse. That’s where he had a photographer waiting as he proposed out on the pier. After taking engagement photos, they went back to the cottage where Pete surprised Chelsea with both of their families, best friends from college, and  his best friends waiting to celebrate. It was the best day for the two!

 

Chelsea and Pete had a beautiful wedding day at The Vinoy Renaissance in St Pete. The two love to vacation in St. Pete, and wanted to have their wedding somewhere where their friends and families could enjoy right after the holidays. The tea garden at the Vinoy was perfect, so much that it inspired Chelsea’s stunning wedding gown with all the flowers. Pete’s favorite color is blue, which is why they went with navy for the bridesmaid’s dresses and Pete’s suit. Their ceremony took place on the Tea Garden at the Vinoy which was gorgeously decorated with foliage on the white chairs that seated their guests. They said their I-Do’s and went off to their reception dinner which took place at The Vinoy’s Sunset Ball. Floating candles, floral placement cards, lanterns and green foliage topped the guest’s dinner tables – it was simply spectacular! Congratulations the the new Mr. and Mrs!!!
