The wondrous Valley Forge Historic Park is one of our favorite locations for engagement sessions! It has the most breathtaking architecture and is full of romantic hills! This was our first time back to Valley Forge after it had been closed for sometime, and it was just as magical as always. Valley Forge is one of Chelsey and Sean’s favorite places for a nice stroll and picnic, but they had never been to this particular location within the park itself!
Their Love Story
Sean and Chelsey met during college at their freshman year orientation at Ursinus College. They caught each others eye while Chelsey was taking a picture with their school mascot in front of the cafeteria. However, this moment was short lived and it wasn’t until Chelsey initiated conversation on facebook that the two began to interact. Finally Sean invited Chelsey to dinner at the Red Lion Diner on his way to LBI for senior week. Their date at the diner went so well that Sean decided to ask Chelsey to join him at the beach the following day. After spending the day together the two shared their first kiss on a bayside bench while enjoying some ice cream at the Jersey Shore. Although they are entirely opposite, and at the time thought beginning a relationship and college was a crazy idea, Sean decided to move forward and ask Chelsey to be his girlfriend! Chelsey said yes, and it seems although it may have been a chaotic time to begin a relationship these two were meant for one another!
To this day that bench where their love story truly began is one of their favorite places to be together. They also love going to the Poconos, staying at home together with their tortoise shell cat Izzie, and enjoying picnics in Valley Forge Park. After being in each others lives for quite some time and making it through college, and new careers Sean decided it was time to ask Chelsey to be his forever. He proposed to Chelsey on June 14, 2019 almost a year before their engagement session to date. He had his close friend hide in the bushes and capture the entire moment! It was absolutely perfect. We cannot wait to celebrate their wedding day with them on October 11,2020 at the stunning John James Audubon Center in Audubon, PA.
