Annie and Benny were my last couple of the year in October! Annie was so sweet to work with, which was no different than any of my other brides this year. I truly felt so blessed to have such amazing couples all year, especially since most of them were all rescheduled Covid brides. Annie’s wedding was actually postponed twice! We attempted to only postpone once and make her wedding safe and perfect in June but ultimately it was safer to wait until October. Throughout the entire planning process (1.5years) Annie remained calm and so delightful every time we spoke!
I met Annie when she came in to Annalise to purchase her wedding dress and we connected so well right then that I hoped after meeting she would want to work with me! She hired a dream team of vendors that truly made my wedding season end on such a high note! Two of her vendors, Hope and Courtney, don’t live as locally as they used to so I hadn’t worked with either of them in years and it was such a gift to be able to work with them in my hometown.
Annie got ready at her parent’s home with with her bridal party and the moms and it was such a beautiful getting ready space! The pops of blue, lots of windows and beautiful backyard made for the perfect location, despite the rainy weather. She and Benny celebrated their love for each other by exchanging vows at St. Bridget Catholic Church which was actually the location of the first wedding I did in 2021.
The reception followed at the John Marshall Ballrooms with all of their friends and family! There were pops of pink and gold throughout the ballroom, a fantastic band, delicious food and plenty of dancing! It was a beautiful evening and I was so happy to see everything come together after such a long time! Congratulations, Annie and Benny!!
