Nick proposed at their home in 2017. “He proposed after dinner outside during a sunset over the mountains right off of our porch with our puppy and my family to witness. That evening we made so many phone calls to let our family and friends know we were engaged. Nick’s family along with some friends came over to celebrate.”
140 guests were in attendance for their June nuptials, including five bridesmaids, five groomsmen, and a flower girl at St. Timothy’s Catholic Church in Walkersville, where Kelsey attended as a child. “The church was designed by my uncle who is an architect and my family has been parishioners from the start. We had hydrangea flowers lining the aisle that my mom walked me down.” The couple was married on the same day Kelsey’s maternal grandparents were wed 56 years before.
Nick and Kelsey had some fun moments at their Holly Hills reception. “Nick’s brother is an auctioneer and he auctioned off a dance with the bride during the reception. Nick ‘shot’ the garter to the guys behind him and we all were looking around to see who caught it when someone pointed out that it had got stuck on the ceiling. The guys hoisted up the boyfriend of the girl who caught the bouquet to the garter.”
Kelsey is a dental assistant and Nick is in sales. They currently reside in Creagerstown.
