Wedding Wednesday: Chelsie & Clay

When it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be, and eventually it all worked out for go-getter Chelsie and her now husband Clay. The pair originally met at church in the fall of 2010, though nothing happened between them because they were dating other people. A year and a half later in February of 2012, the pair met up again in church. Chelsie knew she was a goner, checking him out with no shame. She spent the entirety of the meeting and the time afterward sneaking glances at Clay, hoping that he’d approach her.

Well, he didn’t, but that wasn’t about to deter her. Chelsie decided to take matters into her own hands by doing what any millennial would do and messaging him on Facebook. She successfully got his number and the two talked until a couple days later when she was invited to his place on–of all days–Valentine’s Day. Clay gave her a stunning red carnation that night and the couple shared their first kiss. Of course these two got married!

Chelsie was a long time fan of Petals and Promises, having shopped for prom gowns here every year, and she knew she’d find her dress here. “The consultants made me feel beautiful in every dress I tried on [but] the one I picked was the first dress I tried. I knew instantly that [it] was the dress of my dreams,” remarked Chelsie.

The bride was radiant on her wedding day, and she knew it, too. “After my hair and makeup was done and I slipped on my gown, I felt so beautiful. I was a queen [and] seeing Clay’s face light up when he saw me made me feel even more beautiful.” Surrounded by their loving family and friends, this couple married on August 17, 2012.

Congratulations to this gorgeous couple!
