Chelsea and Allen had their first date at Smith Commons. Allen was running late, but for some reason, as Chelsea said, when she normally would’ve rescheduled, she was unusually patient. And it paid off. The two talked for hours – they became the last people in the restaurant that night! It’s obvious that these two have chemistry like no one else! Before too long, the two got engaged during an incredible evening Allen planned for Chelsea. These sweethearts enjoy taking time to look at their relationship and when they were discussing where they saw each other in 6 months, Allen asked Chelsea to marry him – and then surprised her with family and friends who came to celebrate!
Their stunning wedding day was full of love too! Chelsea and Allen planned their Chantilly, VA wedding together and included lots of gorgeous mint, ivory and gold details. The Bellevue Conference and Event Center was the perfect location for this glamorous celebration – and every detail was executed perfectly thanks to Sirpilla Soirées!
I love that these two valued their wedding portraits enough to take time away from their reception for some rooftop sunset portraits! Those glowing evening portraits were the perfect chance to take a moment for themselves in the middle of all the commotion and celebrate that they’re married!! Chelsea and Allen, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day. It was absolutely beautiful!
