From my first conversation with Ann, I knew I liked her. The very first email included flower inspiration and a picture of her dress and such unbridled enthusiasm for her event… I couldn’t help but be excited for her, too! She said, “This isn’t just any anniversary party. This is the wedding I always wanted. I don’t do things halfway.”
And ladies & gentlemen, she certainly doesn’t. No single detail was overlooked, and finally, after 20 years together, Ann & Jay got the wedding they always wanted. Watching these two awesome people reaffirm their commitment to each other… promising anew to love each other BIGGER and BETTER… the whole day was just a heart-warming experience. Mack and I were honored to be a part of this!
Today, I’m sharing my favorite images from the first half of the day, all shot in and around the historic YWCA in downtown Fort Worth!
Ann did a Girls On Film book for her husband’s anniversary present… I’m happy to testify to a fantastic reaction.
Ann & Jay’s son and daughter-in-law were their attendants, with their grandchildren serving as ring bearer and flower girl. I just love how they kept it all in the family!
Ann made her own bouquet, with scraps from her original wedding dress as well as her mother’s antique wedding gown. So sentimental and perfect!
The couple did a hand washing ceremony, to signify washing away any mistakes that had been made over the last 20 years, and being given a fresh clean start.
YAY! So much joy in this moment!
Come back tomorrow to see all the beautiful reception details that Ann put together, as well as our favorite moments from their big party.
