The Couple
High school sweethearts Chelsea and John dated for eight and a half years before he proposed. John surprised his soon-to-be bride by popping the question in his grandmother’s backyard.

The Details
Weddings, Inc. teamed up with Ronsley Special Events to bring the couple’s modern (and colorful!) wedding to life. Phil Stefani Signature Events put together the Italian menu.

The Party
After John and Chelsea’s first dance to Colbie Calliat’s “You Got Me,” all 275 guests danced to the sounds of the Michael Lerich Orchestra. Essence Entertainment spun the late-night fun.
