Oh boy had I been looking forward to this wedding for the longest time. The beautiful Anna and Andy touched my hearts from the moment I met them. Their kind, caring, soft yet bubbly nature is such a pleasure to be around. They made me giggle from the get go when Andy revealed his proposal story of the crossword that Anna had to fill in when she got home from work one night. Yet he didn’t make it to his own proposal as he fell asleep on the bed! Whoops! He totally didn’t mean to fall asleep, and there Anna stood with a crossword that revealed the BIG QUESTION, and no Andy to be seen. That is a story to giggle about and will be for years to come!
Saturday 8th of March came around so quickly, all the details were looking superb and the efforts gone into this beautiful wedding was completely evident. The good thing is… Andy is AWAKE for his wedding day! Yay! With a few nerves in his chest and a stiff drink to help with that, the smile didn’t leave his face as the thought of his beautiful bride that would be walking down the aisle to him at Trents Vineyard.
And Anna, well every time you see her, you feel lighter than air. There is a calming presence about her. Her beautiful eyes speak volumes as they are so filled with love, hope and gratitude for the life she has and the people in it. As her parents put it, she’s their special girl who is truly treasured.
Anna’s parents desperately wanted a girl, but things didn’t quite go to plan that way. After having their two amazing son’s, they opened their doors as Foster parents. Anna came to them at the age of two. And as 8 or 9 other children came and went from their care. Anna is their special girl who stayed. The proud look on their faces as Anna walked towards them in a wedding dress brought tears to even my eyes! This was a truly momentous day, for everyone.
Let the lovely, awesome, bubbly, FUN… commence…
As the men make their way to Trents Vineyard, it’s almost dress time for Anna! And how gorgeous is this gown!
This love story really is only just getting started… follow me through to Part 2 for the rest of this amazing day…
