Two weeks prior to their engagement, Chelsey was driving home from work and heard a local country station having a contest on the air for upcoming Leap Day. In honor of an old Irish tradition, the station was wanting women to call in and propose to the men they love. Chelsey immediately text Brad – “Just heard on WIL that on Leap day, it’s an Irish tradition that a woman can propose to the man she loves. Looks like I will be proposing to the man I love today… Skip Schumacher (Cardinals Baseball player). Just Kidding… “
Leap day eventually arrived, and Chelsey had forgotten all about the little text she’d jokingly sent Brad – but he hadn’t. They both rived home from work at the same time, and Brad immediately greeted her and asked her if she called WIL to proposed to Skip. She laughed and said “No”. So he then asked her if she was going to propose to him today. Again she responded “No”. Brad quickly responded, “If you aren’t, then I will propose to you.” He pulled out the ring box from his jacket pocket, and right there he asked Chelsey to marry him. Of course she said “yes” and started crying. It was certainly a day the two will never forget.
They are planning another day they will never forget as they plan their wedding for next June!! Enjoy a few images from their engagement session!!
