Chelsea and Matt met in DC and have been living here for the past several years, so they wanted their engagement photos to reflect their love of the city. As luck would have it, we were able to time their session for peak cherry blossom bloom – and it didn’t disappoint! The Thomas Jefferson is always a gorgeous backdrop, but there’s something extra magical about the blossoms. Plus, Chelsea picked out the perfect dress for this season!
Since it was peak bloom, it was obviously very crowded along the Tidal Basin. But that didn’t bother Chelsea and Matt at all! Their fun-loving personalities and ability to make each other laugh made it even more fun as we scoped out those iconic views without everyone in the background.
As it turns out, these two also have a super sweet proposal story too!
Chelsea is a huge Disney fan and has converted Matt in their five years of dating. Her dream has always been a Disney proposal, and Matt made it happen in the most perfect way. He planned a proposal with Chelsea’s family at Magic Kingdom during a trip to Disney in November. They celebrated with Chelsea’s family and then spent the rest of the week on a cruise just the two of them. So romantic!
Congratulations, Chelsea & Matt! Enjoy some of the sneak peeks below. I can’t wait for your DC wedding next spring!
