Anna & Ian

You guys! I feel like I’ve been MIA forever… It’s been about a month and a half since my last wedding and I was seriously anxious to get back into the swing of things! Anna and Ian were the best couple to kick start my wedding season! These two have a great story of fate and persistency (on Ian’s part!) After attending and graduating Radford University AND moving to the same town after college, living just one mile apart, they never crossed paths. Until they both attended a mutual friends wedding. After many, many tries Ian finally scored a date with Anna and as it goes… the rest is history!  Ian’s been working in California but these two made it work!  Their big day finally arrive and it was nothing short of amazing.  Anna surrounded herself with the sweetest girls the morning of her wedding. She stunned in her wedding dress and was so ready to see her groom. Nothing but smiles were coming from Ian as his gorgeous bride came towards him. They promised forever in front of all their loved ones in the beautiful,  historic Aquia church.  We headed to the Silk Mill after to celebrate. Anna and Ian had the venue looking amazing!  They danced the night away with friends and family under a ceiling of twinkle and Edison lights.  It was such a gorgeous day and evening! Enjoy many of my favorites below!  Congratulations Anna and Ian! {Thank you to Sara of Wolfcrest Photography for second shooting the day with me!}
