Retro Wedding – Midwest Wedding Photographers

Chelsea + Randy

 

 

Before Randy and I met, I had seen him play his upright bass at a few local shows and I was totally captivated by him.  He is the best upright slap bass player that I have ever seen.  I finally got the chance to meet him at a mutual friends house in the summer of 2011.  He showed up with a washtub bass that he had made himself. That night he also played clawhammer banjo and I was just blown away, I thought “I want to hang out with this guy more!”.

A few months went by and I was very excited that he asked me out.  On our first date we talked all night and together we realized that both of us had so much in common.  Things that many people our age are not intrigued by or even interested in.  Randy and I both love classic American cars, old radios, mid century furniture & appliances, vintage hair, old music and all the other things that they just don’t make like they used to.   Also on our first date Randy took me to his Barbershop. I fell in love with his shop and was so attracted to the fact that he was a barber. We talked about how it is a dying trade and also how it used to be so important to a man to have a good barber, not just for the great hair cut and shave, but also for the social interaction.

Just two days later following our first date, we took a romantic trip to Memphis and that was where we fell in love and became inseparable.  Randy and I eloped in Memphis just recently because it was the place where we had fallen in love.
