Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club Wedding | Chelsea & Brian

Their Wedding Day: Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club

Chelsea & Brian’s wedding at Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club was one for the books! We had the most perfect day and beautiful weather for these two – including a stunning golden sunset! But the most memorable part of their wedding day was all the pure love, happiness, and excitement that radiated from all of the family and friends! The day was so joyful and every minute filled with laughter! The dance floor at Chelsea & Brian’s wedding was so energetic! Everyone had so much fun dancing the night way! I have way too many favorite photos from this day and I can’t wait to share them all! But first, you know I got to share a little bit of their love story!

Their Love Story

When I asked Chelsea & Brian to share with me one thing they love about each other, they gave the sweetest answers! Chelsea said, “Brian is an incredibly supportive, positive, and calming presence in my life. He knows me better than anyone, and always knows how to make me smile, how to calm me down, and help me see the bright side of all situations. He’s my partner in all things, and my best friend :)” Brian said, “I love Chel’s sense of humor, how big her heart is for others, and how she constantly keeps me grounded and honest. She calls me on my shit (in a good way), I am a better person with Chel.”

How They Met

Rutgers plays a special role in Chelsea & Brian’s love story. Which is why we HAD to take their engagement photos at RU! I’m obsessed with their engagement session – you can check it out here! As Chelsea tells it, “Brian played on the men’s lacrosse team at Rutgers, and I played on the women’s lacrosse team there! Our teams spent a lot of time together, and he stood out to me from the start for many reasons, but mostly because he’s super fun and lighthearted (not bad on the eyes either :)”

“Brian is also from Chicago and I’m from Long Island, which meant when we had breaks from school during the year we would visit each other and get to know one another’s families really well. We became best friends very quickly because we have so many interests in common, but also came from different backgrounds. We’re always teaching each other new things and exploring new activities together. We love to have fun and laugh together, and we are so excited to finally get married in 2022. We’ve been together since 2012!”

The Proposal

Just wait til you hear the proposal story! 🙂 In Chelsea’s words, “Brian did a great job on the proposal! Growing up, I would go camping in Montauk on the beach with my family. It’s my favorite place, and I brought Brian on our trips once we started dating. This past summer, we decided to drive out there for the day because we were feeling down about having to cancel a trip with his family due to Covid. He said let’s go there to get our minds off of work and the pandemic and all. We drove out super early, and went for a walk when we got to the beach, which is something we always do at the beach so I had no idea he was planning anything.”

“After we walked a little, he stopped us and we talked about Montauk and it being my favorite place for a bit, then he knelt down and had a beautiful ring in his hand! To be honest, I thought he was joking at first because he knelt in front of the only other people on the beach which I thought was odd. Then I realized those other people were taking photos of us, and it turned out to be my 3 best girlfriends from high school there to take photos and pop champagne! I was so surprised.”

“Then after hanging on the beach for a while, Brian said we had to pack up and head to my parents house who live a little over an hour from Montauk because my mom and dad wanted to see us. Once we got there, not only were my parents there but Brian’s parents and brothers had flown in from Chicago to surprise me. There was a little Engagement celebration with our families and a few friends. It was such an incredible day- like I said, Brian did a great job!”

To the Newlyweds

Chelsea & Brian, thank you both so much for having us as a part of your day! You two are such a joy and it was an honor to capture all the memories of your day and celebrate your marriage! We love you guys and are so grateful for your friendship! Sending you both the biggest hug!! xoxo
