Happy Wedding Wednesday!
We love featuring the fabulous love stories of our wonderful couples. This past summer, TCE had the awesome opportunity to plan the wedding of Andrea + Kelvin at the Deerfield Golf and Tennis Club in Newark, DE. The planning process required twelve months of long distance communication, and only two in-person meetings due to the couple residing in Illinois. However, the event went off without a glitch, thus fulfilling their dream of a perfect wedding day!
In their own words, here’s the story of how they met on the road to matrimony…
The summer before my final year in college I did an internship. During that internship I met Kelvin’s college roomate. A group of us from the internship would hang out and Reginald (his roommate) and I were friends by the end of the internship. I was talking to Reginald on the the phone one day and thought it would be good to meet some nice guys. So he connected me with Kelvin. We would talk on the phone. At the time I lived in Iowa and he lived in Illinois. We decided to just be friends since it was best for the both of us during the time. When we were friends we always had good conversations ranging from serious to light. Whenever we did hang out, we had a lot of fun. Finally, there was a moment where we both realized that we were great friends and that there might be something more to it. So, we started to try to be more than friends. We would see each other every month. I would come up to Peoria one month and he would come down to Iowa another. During the summer of 2010 I knew there was a point that we could no longer live in separate states and move forward with our relationship. Also, based on our conversations, I knew that he cared about me deeply, and saw me as someone who would be in his life. I was ready for a change of scenery so I decided to move. I finally found something in May 2011 and moved to Illinois.
