I absolutely loved photographing Anna & Charlie’s wedding on June 27th at The Pete Dye Rivercourse in Radford.

Anna and Charlie met while working at TJMaxx. The day of Charlie’s interview was when he saw Anna for the first time and said to himself “that’s the girl I’m going after”. They have a lot of fun together. Charlie taught Anna how to play pool. The first time she spent time with him outside of work he lost the game of pool they were playing on purpose. He didn’t want Anna to know that, of course, but it was fairly obvious. Ever since then, Charlie has been teaching Anna how to win for real! There was even a funny part of the ceremony when during the vows Charlie said he promised to let her win for real!

When I asked Anna how Charlie popped the question she told me this story:

“On my birthday weekend I wanted a bubblecake and he had never been, so I took him over to the shop and we picked out several. Snickers was my choice that I was very excited about. We went out to dinner and came home for cupcakes. I went and got in the shower with every intention of having my cupcake after I got out. When I got out of the shower I went to get it and it was gone. So I asked him where it went. He said, ‘oh, I ate it’. I said, ‘no way!’ (Charlie doesn’t have a sweet tooth and as big and sweet as bubblecakes are there is no way he ate an entire cupcake that quickly on his own). So we begin to argue about it. I was getting pretty mad because I was very excited about my cupcake. Next thing I knew he had a box with a candle on it (to sing me happy birthday). After I blew out the candle I asked him to get me two forks and I look over and he is on his knee. I was like what in the world are you doing? I open the box and there was the ring!”

What a fun story!

Their wedding day was incredible. Anna had the decorations down to perfection. The colors of the flowers were just amazing paired with the purple bridesmaids’ dresses and grey suits for the men. They had little wine glasses as favors and little bells around for the guests to ring! The cupcakes were decorated so perfectly and boy they tasted great too!

This amazing day would not have been possible without the help from:

Cupcake Maker: Viva La Cupcake
Wedding Planner: Everlasting Memories
DJ: Master Taylor Entertainment
Where Dress was Purchased: Bride’s House, in Roanoke
Caterer: Bull n’ Bones
Florist: Best Wishes

“Overall planning was fun. I enjoyed doing a lot of things myself. I like doing crafts so a lot of the things I made myself over ordering them such as the programs, boutonnieres, and place cards. There were stressful times of course, I probably stressed over the seating arrangement more than I should have which in the end doesn’t matter, after everyone eats they are up mingling and dancing anyways so it doesn’t matter,” says Anna.

I wish Anna and Charlie many more years of love and happiness!!
