Anna is one of those brides that you could just hang around all the time.
She is cheerful, considerate, caring, and all around sweet. As she was getting her dress on and had a plethora of her bridesmaids around her, she just kept moving from one to another to another telling them how beautiful they looked, how amazing their hair was and how gorgeous their makeup was. Everyone kept telling her she was the bride and it was about her and she would just respond, “but it’s so TRUE, you look so lovely.” It was so sweet to see how much she loved and cared for her family and friends.
Anna and Pat chose to celebrate their wedding vows in a place that is close to their hearts. They were married at the Conrad Botzum Farmstead (recently named one of the top 23 wedding venues in Ohio) in a beautiful outdoor fall setting in the Cuyahoga National Park near Cleveland. She told me at one point that when she was about 6 years old, when she put on her first cowboy boots, she just decided to never take them off. 😉 She is a horse loving, outdoor living, amazing country loving kind of girl.
My absolute favorite thing about Anna? Simply that no matter how many times I asked her, whether many months before or the day of, what one thing most excited her about her wedding day? Without hesitation, she always responded, “saying I do to the man I love.”
Oh, and their emotional first look? It was just a visual of what their words had been saying all along. As a couple, they truly were just head over heels, and just wanted to spend the rest of their lives together.
Stop. (Cue ugly crying from behind the camera.)
These are a few sneak peeks of her absolutely beautiful day and her smiling face that would make anybody’s day perfect to be around. Anna and Pat, you guys are a JOY. Everyone else, enjoy a little glimpse into their magical fall day.
