Patrick Haley Mansion Wedding, Ryan & Chelsea, Joliet IL
On their first date, Ryan asked Chelsea what her nonnegotiables were in a life partner. During their wedding ceremony, she recalled this and how she knew instantly he was unlike anyone else she had ever been with. After talking about this memory from their first date together, she told him on their wedding day in front of all of their friends and family that he was her nonnegotiable.
So many happy tears.
When I arrived to Chelsea on her wedding day, I asked if she thought Ryan was going to cry when he saw her. She instantly told me yes and that he had teared up even thinking about her in a wedding dress.
Just like she thought, the second Ryan saw Chelsea for the first time on their wedding day he was in instant tears. The sweetest happy tears though I might add. He kept asking her if she could believe it… that their wedding day was TODAY!
As if their adorable first look wasn’t enough, Ryan and Chelsea’s wedding ceremony was one of the most heartfelt, sweet ones I have ever witnessed. In addition to marriage vows, Ryan and Chelsea also wrote each other letters to read out loud to each other. Both had to fight back tears as they confessed their endless love and devotion to one another.
I am so happy to have been a part of Ryan and Chelsea’s wedding day. Their love for one another as well as their love for family is so special. I know that Ryan and Chelsea have an incredible future ahead of them and I cannot wait to see where this beautiful life takes them.
