Kelsey Crunk and Drew Croegaert were married on June 4, 2022, at the Museum of Science and History (formerly, The Pink Palace) in Memphis, Tennessee. Kelsey and Drew’s last names would play a significant role in their future together. The pre-teens met on the first day of 6th grade, seated next to each other. The alphabetical seating arrangement followed throughout middle and high school.
The couple grew from friendly classmates to high school and college sweethearts to a proposal at the Dixon Gallery & Gardens. The bride and groom chose the wedding venue for its grand staircase, beautiful architecture, and outdoor ceremony space.
On a picture-perfect day, Kelsey’s father walked her down the aisle, where she met her handsome groom. The bride wore a strapless gown, while vibrant shades of pink and red flowers filled the ceremonial setting, complementing the bridesmaid dresses. A favorite bible teacher officiated the ceremony as the couple said their vows surrounded by 250 of their closest friends and family.
Dinner, dancing, and celebrating followed the ceremony. Heirloom chinoiserie vases from the bride’s great-great-grandmother filled with florals adorned the dinner tables. A unique feature for the bride was the light “something blue” wedding cake on a table covered in flowers.
The celebration ended with sparklers while the couple drove off in the bride’s grandfather’s vintage Ford mustang convertible. The newlyweds plan to honeymoon in Lake Como, Italy.
