From the Bride:
Being a photographer myself made choosing the right photographer a task to say the least. Although never meeting Anna in person before our engagement session, we knew we made the right choice after seeing Anna Page Photography‘s work online. Once meeting Anna we saw she has a way of making you feel comfortable and at ease while making you look amazing through her lens. As both Dylan and I are not normally the ones in front go the camera, those were important traits that Anna did not disappoint us with.

Dylan’s 5 year old sister, Rachel, had a stoke a few years ago. We couldn’t imagine our wedding without her and so we hunted down a Radio Flyer wagon on Craigslist and had my niece Sierra pull her down the aisle.
Early on in our engagement we came up with the idea of a unity plant, this integrated Dylan’s passion for horticulture into the day. It was important to us to retrieve soil from our family, including our parents and grandparents as the families became one. I was even lucky enough to venture out to my Grandfather’s garden the summer before the wedding in Illinois with him and collect the soil before he passed.
I would recommend a day of coordinator. I thought it would be an easy place to save some money as I didn’t need help planning, what I didn’t realize was that I needed help on the day of the wedding. Having someone other than myself to keep us going and on time would have relieved so much stress on the front end of the day, as well as the clean up in the evening.
We wanted a cake topper that we could get some use out of after the wedding. As we were registering at Macy’s we came across a set of little bird salt and pepper shakers. We knew that this would be the prefect idea. It will always be a sweet reminder of our day whenever we use them throughout their life together. The topper was accompanied by a mini banner and complemented the divinely tasting and looking cake made by Jans Custom Cakes.
