It doesn’t take long after meeting Ivan + Anita to realize that they are both true romantics. On the morning of the wedding Ivan gave Anita five gifts wrapped in separate boxes and numbered them. One of them included a photo of a willow tree that Ivan had planted in their new home together since Anita loves willows, and another was a journal full of letters he had written to her since the day they first met. Every detail they planned for their wedding was something personal to them. They both love quotes and Anita framed a quote for each of the reception tables. We loved this quote on one of the tables; “What greater thing is there for two human souls that to feel that they are joined – to strengthen each other – to be at one with each other in silent unspeakable memories”. [George Eliot] See more on Style Me Pretty.
Anita + Ivan, your whole day was absolutely beautiful and perfect, and we wish you both a lifetime of memories together.
We chose Mark + Elizabeth Kowal from White Album Weddings. We wanted a romantic and natural feel for our photos. Photography is the most important thing for me as I love pouring over photos over and over again and to have beautiful photos to look back on and remember our special day will be the greatest gift, for us, and to be able to share with our families, friends, and our future children, grandchildren and hopefully great-grandchildren!!
