Kelsey grew up in South Dakota and knew ever since she was little that she wanted to live near the beach. Six years ago Kelsey made her dreams come true by moving to Florida. If Kelsey would have never made the journey from South Dakota, she would have never met the love of her life, Joseph. Kelsey + Joseph met through a mutual friend and have been together ever since….4 1/2 years ago to be exact!
Joseph proposed to Kelsey while on a trip to her parents house in South Dakota on the 3rd of July. They were enjoying an evening boat ride and during the fireworks display, he dropped down on one knee! So romantic!
What they love about each other:
Kelsey says, “I love Joseph’s patience and kind heart. He keeps me level headed when I overreact and doesn’t care what people think about him.
Joseph says, “I love Kelsey for her motivation, ambition and good heart. She’s the sweetest most relatable person I’ve ever met.”
Kelsey + Joseph enjoy spending time with their fur baby, a 2yr old cavapoo named Duke. They love food, friends and family, often opening their home to host different guests for parties and family gatherings. It was important on their wedding to foster the same environment as they both had families flying in from all around the country. Most of Kelsey + Joseph’s family have never met before, so it was really exciting to get everyone together to share their joy and love for one another and to celebrate as one big happy family.
