Our Story

Celine Chea and Andrew Rodgers, both from Lexington, Kentucky, crossed paths on a dating app in November 2020. Given the state of the world, their initial interaction began with a discussion about their desire to get the Covid vaccine. Although their first date posed a challenge due to lockdown restrictions, they managed to find a safe and suitable spot at Drake's. As they connected over their shared love for travel and engaged in a lively conversation about their beliefs, Celine was particularly drawn to Andrew's attentiveness. Despite their date being cut short due to a group of rowdy individuals bothering Celine, it became evident that Andrew would become her staunchest advocate as he confronted the group and stood up for her comfort. Andrew and Celine's journey took a significant turn when, after two months apart due to Andrew's Army duty, they embarked on a trip to Cambodia. Little did Celine know that Andrew had meticulously planned to propose to her at sunrise at Angkor Wat, with the help of Celine's sister, Amanda. Celine’s suspicions were aroused by Andrew's sudden preoccupation with his attire for the early morning tour, which was completely out of line with his notoriously casual style. The anticipation and excitement built up for both of them as the tour approached. Although there was a minor miscommunication with the photographer, who approached the couple instead of discreetly capturing the moment, the proposal turned out to be everything Celine had dreamed of since childhood, thanks to Andrew's perfect words expressing his love and devotion before he presented Celine with the ring. The newly married couple will start their life together with a honeymoon in Ireland, embarking on a scenic 10-day road trip along the coast from Dublin to Galway. Afterwards, Andrew's Army duty will take him to Missouri for engineering training, while Celine continues to pursue her dream of attending medical school and working at her nail studio. The future holds excitement and uncertainty as they anticipate Andrew's duty station, with hopes of venturing to South Korea. With Celine's amazing cooking skills and Andrew as a sous chef, they eagerly look forward to creating a home filled with delicious meals, new experiences, and unwavering support as they continue to grow together.
