Chelsea + Jon Wedding | May 25th
How They Met
The Bride // Jon and I met while we were both serving in the Navy. We were stationed in Norfolk, and then Japan together. When we both got off active duty we took a road trip covering 12,000 miles of the western US and Canada, visiting over 20 national parks. We had gone kayaking in Jasper National Park, we were on an island in the middle of a lake surrounded by mountains when Jon asked me to marry him.
The Bride // We both love the water, and considering our Navy background, we incorporated a nautical theme. Chelsea grew up in Toledo, and of course, always loved the zoo, so the Toledo Zoo Aquarium was a no-brainer when choosing a venue. There are so many beautiful outdoor locations around Toledo. We took photos at the Toledo Botanical Gardens, Wildwood Metropark, and the University of Toledo where we are both current students.
