PALAZZO CAVALLI FRANCHETTI CIVIL CEREMONY BY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IN VENICE
Chelsea & Kevin
She grew up in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains and has an enduring love for hiking and spending time in nature. He is very into cars, and has a hobby of fixing up older models to get them running and perfect their performance. Online Scrabble is what made their paths cross.
Chelsea and Kevin decided to tie the knot overseas and chose one of the most incredible places in the world to do so. They flew their closest family and friends to Venice from Texas to get married in the Venetian Town Hall – Palazzo Cavalli Franchetti. Their big day came April 26th. The weather was perfect, Chelsea’s wedding dress from Pronovias looked stunning, Kevin looked handsome – their moms couldn’t stop the tears. The day was like out of a dream.
I wouldn’t be myself if I didn’t share a bit of their story though! Do you even know anyone who met love of their life when playing Scrabble online? Well, now you know such couple exists! Kevin and Chelsea were matched with each other through the app due to having a similar skill level, and they played each other for months before Kevin struck up a conversation one day. It turned out that they were both living in the same tiny town north of Dallas, Texas. They decided to meet up for drinks, and of course she thought he was devastatingly handsome in addition to his skill at wordplay. The rest was pretty much history! They got engaged in October 2016 on their first vacation together (on a Caribbean cruise!) after dating for a little over a year.
Chelsea says an unfailing kindness is what she loves most about Kevin. She says she has never met anyone else so genuinely empathetic and thoughtful – he will drop anything to be helpful to those around him, anyone from family to total strangers.
Kevin says that what he loves most about Chelsea is the way she draws him out and allows him to express himself, and the feeling of completion and of being “at-home” that he has when they are together.
They are very much a tale of opposites attracting their values and “big picture” ideals are very similar, but their interests and hobbies are wildly different. Kevin loves cars. His project of the moment is a 1985 Chevrolet Corvette, but Chelsea still has to talk him down weekly from buying a new project car to work on. He tends to unwind from car tinkering with 90s grunge music, video games, and good whiskey.
Chelsea is a lover of travel and bit of a linguaphile, so when she’s not planning their next trip her biggest hobbies are reading and studying language.
In their time together they mostly enjoy spoiling each other. They live a very low-key day-to-day existence, mostly staying home with their dogs, watching Netflix, and taking bike rides together in the park – so when they actually leave the house, they like to treat themselves to fine dining and fun experiences. Their most recent date night was a 1920s themed murder mystery dinner party!
All this and they chose me to be their wedding photographer in Venice – how cool my life is? I get to work with the most awesome people from across the world!
