Ok, so I am a bit behind with my blog posts. Back in August I photographed Chelsea and Grant’s beautiful wedding out at Hidden Meadows in Snohomish. It was the first time I had photographed an event there and the place is wonderful. Sprawling lawns and an open and airy event space make for a spacious simple setting. Later in the evening we had the pleasure of seeing some of the hot air balloons flying nearby. I had photographed Chelsea’s brother’s wedding a few years back so I had worked with this family before. I do love when people can trust my work and enjoy working with me. It makes me feel terrific.
How they Met:
Chelsea and Grant both attended Macalester College in Minnesota. They met at the beginning of her freshman year (his junior year) on a retreat and started dating very shortly thereafter. After Grant graduated, he went off to Chicago for law school and they had been mostly long distance. After the wedding Grant will be joining Chelsea in Columbus, Ohio where she is working on her Ph.D.
How Grant proposed:
Chelsea and Grant got engaged over Christmas break during her senior year of college (coincidentally, on her parent’s anniversary). Grant was back in Minnesota on his break and they were just hanging out before heading out to a friend’s dinner party. They were cuddling, and then all of a sudden Grant got really shy and whispered in her ear, “Will you marry me?” And Chelsea said yes, of course!
