Chelsea and Sean met in college when they were living in the same building on campus. After booking me, they opted for UC Riverside engagement photos to commemorate their early days of dating. They spent many years together on campus, so it was only fitting! Plus, UC Riverside has gorgeous foliage and architecture, so it’s an easy choice for photos.

The Proposal Story

When I asked Chelsea to describe the proposal, her answer convinced me that Sean is a total creative romantic. She says, “Our dorm was named Pentland Hills. We planned a trip to London this March, which also included a few days in Scotland. While in Scotland, he took me to the real Pentland Hills National Park. He had secretly been researching this spot for years. He was just waiting for me to have enough vacation time to take me there and ask me to be his wife. After this, he surprised me with the honeymoon suite at Dalhousie Castle.”

Their Sweet Relationship

Sean loves how “unbelievably kind and compassionate” Chelsea is to him and everyone. He remarks that she’s like the real life Snow White. That’s one of the sweetest descriptions I’ve ever heard one of my grooms say of his bride. Plus, Chelsea has gorgeous porcelain skin so Snow White is especially fitting! Chelsea says that Sean is the strongest person she knows. As if that wasn’t sweet enough, she adds, “He has an elegance and confidence that is immediately apparent without taking himself too seriously. And he ALWAYS puts me first without even stopping to think about it.” Relationship. Goals.

I am so looking forward to Chelsea and Sean’s wedding at the Westgate Hotel next year. I had a great time getting to know them during their UC Riverside engagement session and can’t wait for the wedding. Stay tuned until next fall to see images from their day.
