Kelhan Bradshaw of Dudley, Massachusetts and Andrew Letourneau of Charlton, Massachusetts are set to wed at Regatta Place in Newport on July 15, 2017.
How We Met
When you ask us how we met, Andy and I will tell you the exact same story. It was the summer going into our freshman year of high school back in 2005. We were introduced by mutual friends at the local fireworks. We sat together to watch the fireworks. When I became cold , Andy gave me his sweatshirt to wear. Then, once the fireworks were over, he gave me a piggyback to my mom’s car. After freshman year of high school, I transferred to another school and we lost contact until the end of our senior year. But once we started hanging out again we were inseparable. Eight years later, we’re getting married!
Our Proposal Story
It was the night of my graduation from nursing school and we had just finished having dinner with our families. As we drove home, I jokingly asked if he had gotten me a graduation present. He looked at me and said, “No, I didn’t.” I was a little upset, but I was so happy to have just graduated that I got over it. We walked into his parent’s house and he turned and looked at me and said, “Fine, I’ll give you one of your Christmas presents.” He went down into the basement as I waited in the kitchen. When he came up the stairs with nothing in his hands, I was confused but figured he must have changed his mind. But then he came around the table and got down on one knee. He pulled out a ring and said, “Is this a good present? Will you marry me?” I naturally started crying and said yes.
