High School sweethearts, these two cuties have been together for a significant part of their lives. I seriously just can't love these two more! They've been waiting for this day for a long time, and I must say I think it their wait paid off! Their day was full of so much love and laughter. It could not have been more beautifully planned and executed.
There was even a surprise choreographed dance that Anna and Brandon did for all their guests! I mean, full on, choreographed Dirty-Dancing, "no body puts Baby in a corner" kind of dance! It was amazing! You could hardly hear the music through all the cheers and claps from the audience. So much fun!
I wanted to share with you some of the adorable things that Anna told me about their story as a couple. I mean, they just have so much history and fun together. Read for yourself!
How they met: Brandon and I met in 10th grade on the first day in Ms. Ohneck's English class! We were elbow buddies and had to interview each other! We dated for about a year and a half and then I broke up with him in the lunch room in front of all of our friends. Anyway, it was meant to be because he chased after me for about 2 years until I decided to give him another chance. The rest is history!
How Brandon proposed: Brandon and I had planned a trip to Chicago over spring break. He was acting strange in the morning but I attributed that to waking up at 3AM. He said he was fine and to quit bugging him! Such a meanie on the day he was going to ask me to marry him! We had completed part of a scavenger hunt that he said he had "found on the internet". In reality he had typed it up himself. I was bugging him to go back and take a nap because it was a gross day and I was freezing! He insisted we go on. Thank goodness we did because our last stop was at Buckingham Fountain in downtown Chicago. We set our stuff down and there was not a SOUL around to take our picture because all of the Chicagoans were smart and were inside where it was warm! He told me he had put the camera on a timer but he had actually put it on recording mode. He ran over to me and was telling me that we had 30 seconds before the camera took a picture. You would have thought I would've guessed he was going to propose when he was facing me but I had NO idea! He finally got down on one knee and I just lost it. I was crying tears of joy for the first time in a long time and it couldn't have been more perfect! P.S. The best part is that a squirrel came up and stole our leftover sandwiches while he was proposing! :)
Favorite part about planning their wedding: Having 3 years to plan it! We were able to get EVERYTHING that we wanted because we could book so far in advance! It's also amazing working together as a couple to plan the day we have been dreaming about. There have been many illnesses including the Best Man's heart transplant and the Mother of the Groom facing cancer 3 times and there are just so many things we are blessed with and our wedding day will be a day to celebrate all of God's miracles and blessings!
Future Plans: Brandon and I just bought a house in Pendleton about 5 minutes north of Noblesville! We are SOOOO excited to move out of our apartment. Kids won't be for another 3-4 years although our parents would like for it to be a little sooner. :) We have both found jobs that we absolutely love. Brandon working at Jennerjahn Machinery as a Traveling Robotics Engineer and I'm working as a Travel Agent for Travel Leaders in Carmel, IN.
Cheers you two!
