Abby + Anthony | Historic Shady Lane Wedding

Abby and Anthony nailed the garden-meets-whimsical-meets-elegant theme! If your looking for a beautiful and fun wedding thats wrapped in golds, whites, and not too many flowers, this wedding story is for you.  Abby spills the details on what made her wedding one of the most memorable days of her life, and advise for those anticipating their own wedding day.  

How did you meet, and most important, how did he propose? 
Anthony and I met through friends when Anthony was home during leave from the army. Usually around our area we would go on walks through certain parks and Anthony took me on a walk through the park one day and proposed there!

Personalized wedding details, tell us about em'! 
We had little signs of both of us throughout the day like the panda on top of the cake that I’ve been obsessed with for a while. Anthony took me to see the pandas in a zoo on one of our first dates. Also, instead of doing favors, we donated to charities that meant a lot to both of us!

What was your favorite part of the wedding day?
The favorite part of our day was definitely hearing each other‘s vows and just enjoying each other‘s company throughout the whole reception. We also had dragonflies with all of the bridesmaids which symbolizes my nanny. And we also had pictures of our grandparents in the entranceway from their wedding.

Do you have any wedding planning or marriage advice that you’d like to share with other couples planning their day?
Your wedding day will go really fast so enjoy every moment with each other and have fun! There's going to be a lot of stressors, but the most important part of that day is that you get married!

Asking yourself who did all that amazing signage? Sorry wedding planners, her aunt did all the calligraphy for the mirrors, program, seating chart, desert signage, and bar signage! Go aunty!
