Chelsea and Sean

How We Met

Sean and I are high school sweethearts! We met in chemistry class on the second day of school. I had a little tradition of not going to the first day of school. So on the second day, I walked into class and sat in the only remaining seat that was not in the front row. Of course, this was Sean’s seat!

He walked up to my desk and told me that he had picked this seat yesterday on the first day of school and I told him I didn’t want to sit in the front! Being the gentleman that he is, he let me have the seat and he sat in the front for the rest of the school year! We eventually became lab partners, he asked me to homecoming, and the rest is history (or should I say chemistry! )

How They Asked

“Sean and I are so thankful for all our parents do for us, so we wanted to do something extra special for them for Christmas this year and we surprised them with trips to Hawaii! As we got closer to the trip, we found that more of our family could come, so we thought- why not, the more the merrier! I just happened to think everyone wanted to enjoy the beautiful Hawaiian beaches like we did!

Little did I know, Sean was planning our engagement around this amazing family vacation! On the second day of our trip, all eleven of us decided to walk to the beach at sunset to take photos before dinner.

My sister, my best friend and I wanted to take a picture looking out towards the ocean. And when I turned around, Sean was on one knee with a ring in his hand and both our families staring back at me behind him. It was a sight I’ll never forget.”
