Chelsea + Quartez | Fredericksburg Wedding

Chelsea and Quartez had a beautiful Fredericksburg wedding on a gorgeous June day at the Spotsylvania American Legion building in the Fredericksburg area. The two said “I do,” in front of family and friends before dancing the night away under a sea of twinkling lights.

Chelsea and Quartez’s wedding was a long time coming for both them and their families. The two began dating in high school, introduced when Quartez’s cousin and Chelsea’s sister began dating and later married. Chelsea and Quartez continued their relationship through high school and college before adding two beautiful children to their family and building a house. Chelsea, an RN, and Quartez, employed with a government contractor, just get each other. She appreciates his love of fishing and sports and he adores her. As parents, the two shine even brighter raising their son and daughter, both of whom had a prominent role in their parents’ wedding day.

For her wedding, Chelsea chose sunflowers, her favorite, for the florals complimented by pops of mint in the bridesmaids’ dresses and groomsmens’ accents. The mint was then complimented by grey suits for the gentlemen. The aisle featured sunflowers along the way and was bookended by two mint doors with sunflower accents and an arbor featuring a spray of sunflowers and greenery. Sunflowers were also featured in the table arrangements and in the favors–sunflower seed packets in celebration of Chelsea and Quartez. Guests dined on fried chicken, green beans and mashed potatoes and danced to both new and old songs throughout the night.

The reception was a highlight of the night as both young and old guests hit the dance floor to show off their moves. They wobbled, cupid shuffled, Footloosed and slow danced their way across the floor, with laughter and smiles all around. And, after cutting their cake and enjoying a champagne toast, the bride and groom headed off into the night, finally a married couple.
