Back in May of 2012 I asked Shannon on a "date" to a purse party. She said yes and the rest is history. I couldnt imagine having a better person to call my best friend. She has been my rock and my partner in crime. I feel honored that she agreed to be my Maid of Honor.
Crystal and I met as waitresses at Outback and quickly learned that we had the same personality, once the ice was broken with a loud/sarcastic yell of "corner!" Since that night we were fast friends. Despite her following her husband across the country we have been able to remain very close and I am so excited to have her by my side on my wedding day! Be sure to ask her to rap "Shoop" by Salt-N-Pepa!!
Jenny and I met at work and I was her trainer. According to her I was very intimidating, but obviously that wore off quickly and we became good friends. I am very blessed to have her in my life and I am thankful that we have been able to remain close friends.
Mandi and I met in high school while performing in a play together. We became quick friends and we hung out all the time. We were so close that my date and I took her and her now husband to our prom in order to have our entire group go to prom together. Mandi has been there for me throughout the years including when I graduated from Radford. I was one of her bridesmaids when she married her high school sweetheart and I couldnt imagine getting married without her by my side.
Brandy is my fabulous sister-in-law. She joined my family back in 2008 and life has never been the same. She brings so much joy and happiness to my brother and our family. She is always there when I need to talk and I am so lucky to be able to call her my sister.
Tiffany is the sister of the man I am marrying. I first met her when I went to Florida with Chris to meet his family. She was so welcoming and I knew that we would get along great. I can't wait to be able to call her my sister-in-law.
Kayla in my neice. She has grown into such a beautiful and strong young woman. I couldnt imagine getting married without my Kayla by my side.
Claire is the daughter of Chris. She is such a ray of sunshine and has beautiful heart and soul. She is very excited about being the flower girl in our wedding. She is also excited to have me joining her family. I cant wait wait to watch this little girl grow up.
Brianna is my niece and daughter of Terry and Brandy. She is the youngest of my neices and I cant wait to see her all dressed up on my wedding day. I am so happy to have her as one of my flower girls.
This is truly one of the greatest guys I've had the pleasure to have in my life. Michael Ortega. I know I can ask him for anything and he'll be there. Thanks Mike!!!
This is one of the craziest guys I've ever met. And he's made me the biggest shrimp I've ever seen or ate. I've only known him for 2 years but we've basically became brothers from other mothers.
This is one of my best buddies Dougy Fresh(Douglas Pierce). We have been friends since 2006. He's a giant liberal but that's ok, he's still my buddy. We've been all over the earth together and once we shot guns in his house for fun. Luv this guy.
I met him in 2013. He's one of my good buddies, always around to talk and give me advice and guidance He always has my back. Thank you for being part of my special day.
David and I have been friends since we were 4 years old. David comes from a wonderful family with a brother, Michael, and a sister, Julie. We were always together, playing army, looking for bugs and snakes, fishing and have stayed in touch with each other since I left home to go where the Navy takes me.
Terry is the oldest brother of the Bride. He is also the husband to Brandy and the father to Kayla, TJ, Brayden, and Brianna. We have employed his entire family to be part of our big day. Terry is always there when we need a laugh and we are looking forward to what crazy things he will do to make us smile.
Lee is the brother of the bride. He is currently living in Japan and we are so excited that he will be making the trip home. We are so happy that he and his new fiancee will be able to share our special day with us. It will also be nice to know that we have family in the same country when we move to Japan.
Brayden is the nephew of the bride. He is the son of Terry and Brandy. When he is not protecting the rings you can find Brayden playing video games. We are so happy that he will be an important part of our special day.
TJ is the oldest nephew of the Bride. He is growing up to be such an awesome young man. He is into playing basketball and is slightly obsessed with shoes. We are so excited to have him be a part of our big day.
My parents, Debbi and Jim Skluzak, are two of the most amazing people in the entire world. They have been married for what my Dad says is 100 years and are a great example of a happy marriage. I have always looked up to them and their ability to keep their marriage going. I cannot recall anytime that I have heard my parents fight, other than the silly bickers that come with day to day life. They have shown me what love looks like. My father is a pilot who recently retired from UPS Since his retirement he has taken up the hobby of woodworking. Most days you can find him in his garage making some pretty incredible pieces of woodwork. My Dad is my miracle man. I am so thankful that he is here with us today and will be able to walk me down the aisle. Watch for lots of tears from this man. I love you Dad.
My Mom is one of the strongest women I have ever met. When we were younger and my Dad was flying around the world, I never once heard her complain. She always made sure that everything back home was taken care of. She has always put her kids needs/wants before hers and never complained once. Now that her children are grown, she has turned her attention to helping wildlife. Now that my brothers and myself are adults she enjoys volunteering her time with fundraising efforts for the Wildlife Center of Virginia and talking with people about wildlife.She is an incredible woman and I am so luck to be able to call her Mom. I love you Mom.
My parents, Jeff and Carol Chastain, will be celebrating their 34th wedding anniversary on March 5th, my wedding day! My mom and dad are the best! They have always been there for me and supported me in my all my endeavors. My dad worked at Blue Cross and Blue Shield Insurance Company for over 30 years in the IT Department and retired in 2006. He is very involved in church, kayak fishing, hunting and maintaining the home I grew up in in Jacksonville, Florida which was built in 1935. I am honored that he is my Best Man. My mom was a stay-at-home mom while my sister and I were in elementary school. Always being involved with our school and making herself available to volunteer at all our school and outside activities. As I got into high school she went to work outside the home and retired in 2012 from the Florida Legislature as a Legislative Aide to a state senator. She now spends as much time with Claire as possible, an avid tennis player, gardner, crafter and amateur photographer. I am blessed to have the parents I have and love them both very much.
A little over two years after we met Chris took my back to Kelly's Tavern where we first met. He took me to the parking spot where we had our first hug and then we went inside and sat as close as we could to the spot where we had met. This is where he dropped to his knee and asked me to be his wife. I immediately said yes and am looking forward to our lives together.
Chris and I met online; you know the way everyone seems to meet these days. I was getting ready to give up when he emailed me. I thought he was very attractive from his pictures. After chatting and texting for a while we decided to meet. We met at Kelly's Tavern on a Wednesday night. I knew almost instantly that I would want to see him again just by the way we clicked. After our first date I texted my best friend Shannon to let her know that he had "potential”. Soon we were seeing one another almost every day and our friendship grew into a relationship quickly. Our first days were spent at the movies or shooting pool. It was at the pool hall that it hit me like a ton of bricks that I had fallen in love with this guy with "potential". I immediately texted Shannon and told her that I loved him. The following spring he took me home to Florida for a week visit with his family. While on vacation Chris finally leaned into my ear and whispered those three magical words, "I Love You". It is one of the best memories in my life. The following year we found out that Chris received orders to Japan. I felt like I had been punched in the stomach, I knew I wanted to go with him, but we weren’t even engaged, so I would have to wait here while he was half way around the world for 2 years. He took his sweet time asking me to marry him, but once he did I became the happiest girl in the world. I cannot wait to start our adventure as husband and wife halfway across the world in Japan!!!!
Born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, I attended private school until the 10th grade, then transferred to Robert E. Lee High School and graduated in 2003. I wasn't the most studious student in class, but I got by. Not knowing what I wanted to do after high school I was sitting in English class on September 11, 2001 when we heard of the attack on the World Trade Center. Watching the devastation of the deadliest incident in the history of the United States, I knew then I wanted to serve my Country. I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in my senior year and have served for 13 years and reenlisted this past September for 6 more years. I played a little tennis and football during my school days and played baseball at our neighborhood ball park, but there is nothing like fishing. I love going out in my kayak and hooking a big one! I met and fell in love with my bride-to-be and know that she is the one that completes my life. Once we are married, we will begin our life journey in Japan for the first 3 years. Kelli is the most beautiful, sweetest, warm hearted and understanding girl I've known. I'm a lucky guy!
Hi Everyone! Its Kelli, the Bride! I can't believe that I am a bride. I am so excited to be marrying the guy that makes me smile uncontrollably and remarkably happy. I am currently working in the banking industry, however I will be quitting my job when we move to Japan and will be working on my Master's Degree in Marriage Counseling. I am lucky enough to have the support of my soon-to-be husband to follow my dreams of helping others have a long happy marriage. I am looking forward to the adventure of starting our marriage on the other side of the world. It is going to be such an exciting time, I cannot wait to experience an entirely different culture and do some traveling. It will be my first time living out of the state of Virginia, go big or go home, right?!
I found the dress of my dreams at Maya Couture with the help of the Lovely Amanda!
Found the perfect venue with an AH-Mazing bridal suite. We cant wait to be married in The First Lady of Suffolk
