You do not need a Hollywood style highlight to make it exceptional. There is still something special about ordinary love stories. It’s all about those little moments of joy that you call ‘our thing,’ time spent together, memories, and inside jokes. After all, these little things when put together create a life worth recollecting.

One such story is that of Danielle and Chelsey. They sealed their fate together on October 1st, 2020, vowing to be there for each. The ceremony took place at the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. The towering red peaks served as a perfect backdrop for the couple’s I dos. The sun was glimmering at its best when they kissed. It was the start of a new beginning. 

 Danielle and Chelsey’s wedding day was a memorable event. But, what led to this day was even more beautiful. The happy couple met on a dating app while they were living in Washington. It all started with dates on the weekends. They used to drive for an hour and take a ferry ride to see the happy smiles on each other’s faces.

After a year of weekend dates, they decided to move it together. It was the beginning of an adventure that changed their lives forever. They explored so many things together, from coffee, vegan food spots, to discovering Pacific Northwest for photo ops. They created some unforgettable memories. And it did not take long for them to realize they want to be with each other for the rest of their lives. Chelsey proposed to Danielle, and the two looked forward to their future together. 

Even the pandemic did not stop them from their walk down the aisle. The ceremony took place at the Red Spring featuring the red rocks and trees. It was not a traditional vibe but stood out from what couples usually aim for at weddings. Danielle wore a dark blue dress with a black lace bodice and a full-length skirt that complemented Chelsey’s navy and black paisley print jacket over a crisp white shirt.

It was a simple yet memorable wedding. The Cactus Collective Weddings ensured that everything was perfect for them. Cheers to Danielle and Chelsey! May they have a blessed and happy life.
