Chelsea and Ryan are people of HEART. When I first met Chelsea, she cheerfully and sweetly made my Dutch Bros coffees. She is the epitome of what Dutch Bros is all about, by the way-kindness, happiness, service with a smile, and a genuine love for her customers. So of course, I adored her from the beginning, along with most of the other barista's there. And then she moved on to a job in social work, and I mourned my loss of her cheery face in my life. But then! One of my brides mentioned that Chels was getting married, and passed on my information, and she contacted me!!!!! When we sat down to talk about the wedding, we talked as though we were old friends, and clicked on every level, creatively, emotionally, all over!
The day of the shoot, I met Ryan, and wouldn't you know, he's the second most sweetest guy I know (the most sweetest being my husband, guys, c'mon) and his adoration and love for Chelsea made me squeal quite a few times during that shoot. I think I may have talked in a high-pitch can't-handle-this-level-of-awesome voice about 40% of the time. And they loved me right where I was at, bless their hearts.
I can not even begin to wait for their wedding in April at the Chateau Rive in April, but until such a time, let these tide you over!
