SAY HELLO AND CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR SYLVIE BRIDE, CHELSEY & HER FIANCE, NICK!
I am a registered nurse on the surgical trauma unit at Avera Mckennan Hospital. I am planning to start nurse practitioner school next fall. My fiance, nick, is a police officer and on the swat team here in Sioux Falls, SD.
HOW THEY MET
The very first time we met was at a bar and grille called the 18th amendment. We were hanging out with a group of mutual friends on a Thursday evening. I’ll never forget the moment we first laid eyes on each other. And as the saying goes, the rest is history!
HOW DID YOU KNOW THEY WERE THE ONE?
The very next night we went out on our first “official” date. Even though we had just met, I felt as if I had known nick my whole life. Everything just came so easy, and as cheesy as it sounds, we knew from then on that we were meant to be.
HOW DID THEY PROPOSE?
My parents have a cabin on lake minnewaska near Alexandria, MN. Whenever we are able to visit we always make sure to stop by one of our favorite places, Carlos Creek Winery. Well, last memorial day weekend we took a trip to the lake and it was there at the winery that Nick got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. He did it right next to the horse-drawn carriage, and then we went for the most romantic ride around the winery. It was literally the most perfect moment, and one that I’ll cherish for the rest of my life.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE A SYLVIE RING?
The first and only place that we went to look at engagement rings had the Sylvie Collection. No matter which other ring I looked at or tried on, I kept going back to the Sylvie engagement rings because no other ring compares! I simply fell in love with the intricate details of each and every one.
WHICH SYLVIE RING DID YOU CHOOSE?
I chose my engagement ring because it is truly my dream ring! I wanted a dainty diamond band and was looking for a certain way that it connected to the halo. My Sylvie ring is absolute perfection in every way!
WHERE DID YOU BUY THE RING?
Nick bought my engagement ring from the Diamond Room in Sioux Falls, SD.
AS A SYLVIE BRIDE, YOU SAY YES TO LOVE AND TO MANY OTHER THINGS! WHAT ARE THEY?
I say yes to anything that brings me happiness in life. I have always been very adven turous and a risk-taker ~ from being a dolphin trainer at sea world when I went to college out in San Diego, to being recruited and becoming a USPA polo player for the Sioux Falls polo club. I have always believed in gaining as many experiences as I can in this life.
AS THE GROOM, WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR YES GIRL?
It’s hard to pick just one thing! One thing that I absolutely love about Chelsey is her selflessness. She would do anything for anyone and expect nothing in return; especially when I catch a case of the “man cold”. She truly is beautiful inside and out!
