The Couple 

Kelsey + Trent

Love Story

Kelsey and Trent met 7 years ago on their first day of work at a training in Florida. Trent was living in Chicago and Kelsey was in Texas, but their paths kept crossing over the course of 4 years as they worked together and attended offsites in the same city. They were quick friends and loved working together, and Trent always referred to Kelsey as his “what if” girl: what if they lived in the same city? what if they were more than friends? Eventually, Trent started reaching out to Kelsey outside of work, and Kelsey flew to Chicago for a date over Saint Patrick’s Day. As fate would have it, Kelsey had been planning a move to Chicago, and 5 months later they were dating in the same city. In June of 2021, Trent proposed to Kelsey at the lakefront in Chicago where they spent many evenings during COVID getting out and having great conversations. Trent and Kelsey’s family were both at the lakefront to celebrate, then Trent surprised Kelsey when they showed up at a second location, and all of her friends from Texas, Kansas City, Arkansas, and Denver had flown in to celebrate. Trent and Kelsey knew they wanted a fun destination for their wedding and were deciding between Jackson Hole and Santa Fe, landing on Santa Fe as they imagined their guests taking over the quaint town square. They wanted something bright and happy, unique and fun, classy but not stuffy, and were so pleased with their celebration!
