Chelsey and Anthony
How We Met
Anthony and I met as students at Biola University where we were enrolled in the same marine biology class. We had multiple classes together over the next 2 years until I moved back to Texas for a period. By the time I returned to California, Anthony was working as the lab supervisor for the Biology department, and I was hired as an adjunct professor. We would go to lunch and dinner every Wednesday between my classes. Then, one Wednesday when I showed up for work, Anthony had a bouquet of tropical flowers and a card waiting for me. It was then that he asked me to be his girlfriend. We fell in love quickly and had so much fun together. One of my favorite dates was to a Harry Potter orchestra concert–it was magical! We have laughed and cried together and love every memory we have created.
How He Asked
On June 16, 2017, Anthony proposed at one of our favorite spots: the Biola library. He arranged for our families and some of my closest friends to fly in and be a part of it. Anthony is my best friend. He pushes me to be a better person daily and I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with him!
