Couple of the Year Entry: Chantelle & Michael

Chantelle & Michael

Chantelle & Michael went on vacation to South Africa during winter break in order for my husband to ask my dad for my hand in marriage. About a month after that he asked Chantelle to marry him during the Cherry Blossom festival in Hadong South Korea. It was a fairytale engagement, the whole world was colored light pink with cherry blossom.Chantelle is from South Africa and Michael is from America. They met each other in South Korea in a tiny town called Samcheonpo in the only Starbucks in the town. They think it is funny that both of them had to leave their home country and their equally tiny towns just to meet each other in a small town in South Korea.

Favorite Part of Wedding Planning
“Doing all the little DIY project with my husband to be. He could see how impatient I am and he enjoyed watching me having to do things over because my fingerprints where on everything. I also really enjoyed dress shopping I mean really who doesn’t like pretty dresses and champagne?”

Tear Jerking Story from their Wedding
“My pastor from South Africa flew to America especially to marry us and it was such an amazing present.”

Funny Story from their Wedding
“Well this I found out a little after the wedding. My mom gave my little white coverup to my aunt to keep save while we were taking photos. It started getting cooler and I asked my mom to bring it before we take the pictures in the apple orchard because it got really cold. Turns out my aunt spilled red wine on my little white coverup. Luckily my her daughter immediately took it and got the stain out. This they kept a secret until a few months ago.”

The Story Behind their Favorite Wedding Photos
“My favorite photo is one of the last photos of the night. My Maid of Honor bought me some beautiful and comfortable moccasins, and on my face you can clearly see the joy and relief taking off my heels and putting my feet in those warm and comfortable moccasins.

Photographer Experience
“My photographer was great, she phoned me a head of our big day to get to know us and our story. She made me feel comfortable and they went above and beyond to make sure that we get the most out of our day.”

What the couple liked most about working with Classic Photographers
“It was an easy and convenient way to find a photographer. I really liked that I could go thorough and choose the photographer that I liked. The payment plan was great and the response from customer service and Keith were very speedy which I really appreciate.”

Why should you be chosen as the CP Couple of the Year?
“Well with having two weddings a honeymoon was put on the back burner. We are a fun couple who likes to travel and see the world. I’m adventurous and my husband is the calm and collective one (he keeps me sane). We don’t take life to serious. We might not be the most photogenic couple but thank goodness for photoshop so we can make the cruise picture look fun.

Photography: Classic Photographers – Layla T.
