Kelsey and Matthew met on their missions. Matt was waiting on his Visa to go to Jamaica and went to Kelsey’s mission while he waited. He tried to write her while they were both serving, but Kelsey was NOT having it!
After they both came home they got together and it was absolute LOVE! When the Idaho Falls Temple closed due to the pandemic, they weren’t sure what they would do, but they decided to make plans and hope for the best. During their engagement the Idaho Falls temple opened for sealings and they got their date locked in right away!
When we arrived at the temple in Idaho Falls Matt got ready to see her for the first time. I asked Matt how he was feeling and he said he wasn’t nervous but he was so excited they could share this day in the temple together. My heart SOARED okay!! Like perfection everywhere people!!!
We waited for Kelsye to arrive in Idaho Falls and when she finally arrived at the temple the butterflies began! They both wanted to do a first look reveal, so we made sure Matt didn’t see her coming out of the parking lot. Kelsey approached him, then Matt turned around, and then they could not let their eyes off each other. Let me tell y’all,
Literally real moments in every single one of these photos! They danced, they kissed, they did princess spins, I was in HEAVEN!
I loved visiting the temple grounds again after not being able to be on them for a while. I hope that the City of Idaho Falls can continue to have fewer and fewer cases so couples like Matt and Kelsey can commit to each other inside the temple!
After the ceremony they had a cute reception in Pocatello with Doughnuts and hot cocoa! They aren’t into dancing and didn’t really want any of the traditional things, so they just had a social event for friends and family who couldn’t go into the temple.
