23 Apr Chelly + Michael | Houston, TX
We love all our couples, but Chelly and Michael have a story that warms our hearts. We’re all so excited to share their wedding day with them at Oak Tree Manor tomorrow!
They agree on almost everything, but especially the one day of their time together that they’d relive if they had the chance. “The day he returned from being deployed in Afghanistan. It’s such a weight lifted off your shoulders when your own soldier comes home safe. God is good.”
“Michael has the kindest eyes I’ve ever seen in my life. He has this presence about him that is so warm. He is so supportive and no matter the situation he always brings out the best in me. I love hearing him sing and play his guitar. I could have had the worst day and hearing him washes it all away. My favorite thing is he lets me be me and loves me for it. I love loving him”
He considers her his rock – “I love that no matter what happens to her, no matter how beat down she feels or get, she always stays strong. I don’t know how she does it at times. She is the kindest person and always puts others in front of herself. She is 100% selfless. She is a lot stronger than she gives herself credit for. Her honest laugh and smile get me every time. She is just beautiful and her soul is pure.”
Despite being long distance the entire time they’ve been together – missing all first holidays together while he was deployed – their love is still playful, flirty, and fun. Michael has an imaginary brake on the passenger side that he slams on without even realizing it when Chelly is driving. Chelly hides in the house to jump out and scare him. It’s not hard to see why they’re so strong – Michael makes the six hour drive from the Air Force base in Abilene to Houston every single Friday just to spend the weekend with Chelly and her son.
