Shane Nelson and Chelsea Polsley

Chelsea Polsley and Shane Nelson announce their engagement. The couple, who became engaged June 27, is planning an Aug. 22 wedding at Divots Event Center in Norfolk.

Chelsea, the daughter of Greg and Sue Polsley of Fort Calhoun, grew up in Fort Calhoun and is a 2007 graduate of Fort Calhoun High School. She has been very involved in the open and quarter-horse show circuits every weekend. Chelsea moved to Newman Grove in March 2014 after nearly a year of distance-dating Shane.

Shane, the son of Gary and Jean Nelson of Newman Grove, grew up in and graduated from high school in Newman Grove. He attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and then returned to Newman Grove to help in his family’s farm.

Chelsea and Shane, who met through both of their high school friends, will have a “Country Princess”-themed wedding, with an outdoor ceremony at Divots and in indoor reception. The couple plans to go on their honeymoon at a Riviera Maya resort just outside of Cancun, Mexico, after their wedding.
