Chelsea + Ben – Sunny Engagement Session – New Castle NH

If perfect days are always filled with love, laughter, and beautiful blue skies, Chelsea & Ben’s engagement session was perfection to the T. We first met Chelsea & Ben through another one of our awesome couples, Erin & Lee, so we knew that these two had to be awesome as well. After all, awesome people tend to hang with other awesome people, right? Okay, that’s a whole-lotta-awesome. Chelsea & Ben are so fun, adventurous, and the best photo jumpers in existence! {Seriously! Scroll down and check out how much air these two caught!} We held our session at the always lovely New Castle Commons in New Castle NH. The weather was perfect, perfect, perfect, with a dash of dreamy. Chelsea & Ben are tying the knot this November at Wentworth by the Sea and we can’t wait for their big day!

Chelsea + Ben’s Q&A

How did you meet?

Chelsea: We met at a party my freshman year at UNH (2006). But it wasn’t until 4 years later that we actually had our first date.

Ben: My senior year of college a friend’s little brother was bringing some friends over for a party. Chelsea was one of those friends.

What did you first notice about your sweetie?

Chelsea: His contagious laughter and adorable smile.

Ben: Chelsea has some stunning features, but I first noticed her bright smile and beautiful eyes.

What do you like to do together?

Chelsea: Everything! But especially working out, playing cards, watching the Pats, and baking cookies together.

Ben: Chelsea is my best friend. We do everything together. Everything is better when we are able to do it together.

Who’s the most ticklish?

Chelsea: Definitely me.

Ben: Don’t tell! But Chelsea is more ticklish by a mile. Especially on her feet.

Tell us the Proposal Story!

Chelsea: We were sitting at our kitchen table in our Concord apartment. Ben was holding my hand and talking about how great we are together as a team. Then he simply asked, “Will you marry me, Chelsea?”, and of course I said “Yes!” A couple of days later he gave me a beautiful claddah ring to wear while we searched together for the perfect diamond ring. Once we found that ring, he got down on his knee and proposed again. I think he already knew the answer, but I said “Yes!” again.

Ben: I went down to chat with Chris (Chelsea’s dad) one night to tell him that I was very interested in marrying Chelsea. He gave me assurance that he supported that decision and that night in our kitchen, I asked Chelsea to marry me. She said “Yes!”. We then picked out a ring for her to wear until I was able to purchase her a diamond – a claddah ring with her birthstone in it. I proposed again with the claddah ring and she said “Yes!”. A few months later we found the diamond ring that Chelsea wanted. I bought it and asked Chelsea to marry me a third time. She said “Yes!” again! Three proposals and three yes’!

What’s your favorite feature/characteristic about your sweetie?

Chelsea: I love Ben’s go-getter attitude and zest for life. I am so proud of him for the effort he is always putting into winning at all the important areas of his life – our relationship, his relationship with his family, work, school, exercising, eating well, finances… he impresses me more and more every day and I couldn’t be happier to have him as my mate!

Ben: Chelsea has so many great features and it’s hard to pick just one as my favorite. One of the things that I love most about Chelsea is her ability to listen and think critically about something and then offer awesome advice. My girl is wicked smaht!

Have you picked a honeymoon destination? If so, where are you going?

Chelsea: Yes! We are heading to sunny Florida and staying at a hotel right on the beach in Ft. Lauterdale.

Ben: Ft. Lauterdale. We are going to hang out at the beach!

How is the wedding planning going?

Chelsea:  It’s going well. I am so excited about how nicely everything is coming together. Ready to get this party started!

Ben: Very well.

What are you most excited about for the wedding?

Chelsea:  THE KISS! Dancing. Wedding cake. Everything!

Ben: All of it. It is going to be an awesome event that will kick-start an amazing life together.
