Chelsea admits she was super nervous walking around the corner of the Tavern to meet Nate on which would be their first date of many. The moment she laid eyes on him she couldn't stop smiling and thought he was so darn cute. He ordered a rib eye and she had 4 pieces of lettuce, she was focused on one thing alone and that was soaking in every second of his company. When they started telling each other about their latest adventures Nate made the excuse of showing her images from his most recent trip to Seattle to sit next to her, which she was absolutely okay with but also freaking out a little on the inside!  Their date was quick due to time restraints but after their 20 minutes of awkward goodbyes and too much smiling, Nate texted her and they mutually shared their enthusiasm over how much they enjoyed each others company and couldn't wait to see each other again. Chelsea says, "We have been inseparable ever since!'

These two love spending time together experiencing life with each other and their children. Enjoying nature and taking time to relax, snuggling watching movies. 

Speaking of nature, Chelsea and Nate drove up to Two Rivers, Wisconsin from Illinois to get away together for the first time. They added us into the mix and we met out at Point Beach State Forest. We had an absolute blast with them capturing what is obvious to be a special and deep love from the very beginning. I'm positive to say we became instant friends, and we're already planning something for next summer together!

They spent the weekend visiting Green Bay, enjoying 1919 Kitchen & Tap at Lambeau Field since Nate is a big Packers fan (but really, who isn't? Am I right?!). Visiting Lighthouses along Lake Michigan in Manitowoc and Port Washington and watching the sun set. They even headed back to Two Rivers and walked the beaches. I'd say the area left an impression since they plan to come back and see us again!
