Congratulations to Chelsea McFadden & Matt Sharkey!
Where: Sandals Grande in Antigua
When: May 11th, 2013
On the afternoon of May 28, 2011, Matthew Edward Sharkey held something a little more precious than usual in the back pocket of his distressed jeans as he brought his girlfriend of more than six years to the city of Philadelphia. The couple paired off for a day filled with shopping, strolling, and dinner. The city was always a special place for the two. It was unbeknownst to Chelsea Lauren McFadden that the night would end a little more spectacular than she had planned.
And this little extraordinary something would turn into a lifetime of love and commitment.
The Groom – Matt
The love of my life. He makes me laugh and is there with me through my many life adventures..high school, college, home ownership, puppy, travel and work. Oh, and he tolerates me. What more could a girl ever ask for?!
No, really, I am pretty lucky to have Matt in my life and I am really excited to see what our life together brings forth. It was just the other day that someone from work commented on us as a couple. The right words weren’t able to come to her mind, but she knew that we were just meant to be together. She told me that we just looked like the perfect fit. . . And when I am with Matt, I do feel like I am in my perfect fit. . .
The Bride – Chelsea
When I think of Chelsea the first thing that comes to my mind is amazing!!! She has done so much in her life already, but she never stops wanting to better herself. That is one of the biggest things I love about her and to tell you the truth the list goes on and one with how many different reasons why I love her!!
She truly is the love of my life and there is no question about that!!! No matter what we are going through she sticks with me for some reason haha!! I love it when I come home from a rough day at work or whatever I was doing and I get to see her smiling at me, which just makes all the problems go away. You know you have something special when that happens day in and day out!! It’s like we go together like peanut butter and jelly haha (Sorry I had to say it haha)!!
I can’t wait to see what the rest of our lives have in store for us!
Bride Wedding Party
- Maid of Honor - Dana McFadden
- Dana is my younger sister and my confident. While most everything in our sisterly relationship is brutally honest, we will always have each others back and we do share some pretty incredible memories and adventures. Like most sisters, we have an unbreakable bond and a deep understanding of each other. So it wasn't a difficult decision for me to ask if she would be my maid of honor. I am both grateful and excited to have her by my side on my wedding day.
Groom Wedding Party
- Best Man - Dylan Sharkey
- When I think of someone that knows even more about me then Chelsea, I would have to say my brother, which is the main reason I asked him to be my best man. Dylan has been my partner in crime ever since the day he was born. Now we don't always get along.. as in every Irish family ...but I wouldn't have it any other way! No matter what happens in the future or what has happened in the past, my brother will be my brother and I will love him to the day I die! I'm looking forward to the day when he will be standing next to me and my wonderful wife to be in paradise!!!
