Anna is a bride with vision and the special little details were assembled with love by her and Charles to make the day absolutely stunning with a warm coziness that I can’t quite put into words. The love between them is so evident in the neck nuzzles and spontaneous laughter. He’s her rock, and she’s his firecracker, a match made in heaven!

From the Bride:

How long have you dated? Almost 3 years!

When did you know he was the one?

I knew way before we even dated that if we ever did date, and if that was God’s plan, that we would get married. Our relationship took root when we started to have conversations about psychology classes. The depth and understanding he showed, he spoke of, and shared helped us develop a bond I knew was beyond special.

What do you love most about each other?

Charles is my still waters. He knows me fully, yet chooses to love me. In that, he can relate to me in a way that no one else ever has. I love that he’s always on my side and always assures of me that.

When and where did he propose? New Year’s Eve 2014, Top of Vestavia (White Dome)

What do you look forward to most about spending the rest of your lives together?

Making memories, lots of laughs, seeing each other adjust to being parents, and knowing I always have someone on my side

From the Groom:

What do you love most about each other?

What I love most about Anna, and find most remarkable, is her incredible resilience. Despite all the circumstances she always has joy and life shining through. No matter our circumstances and feelings, she is constantly a blessing to me.

When did you know she was the one?

When she drove down Lakeshore during the 2014 “Snowpocalypse.” We spent a significant amount of time being trapped in a hospital, vehicle and apartment. Through that adventure, we formed a deeper bond than ever before, and that’s when I knew I could spend the rest of my life with her.

What do you look forward to most about spending the rest of your lives together?

I look forward to knowing we will fulfill God’s great purpose for our lives, which is to be loved and to love unconditionally. We are made in His image to reflect his love on each other. Sometimes we may fail at that, but I will know we will always be striving to do it.
