Bill’s faves of Anne’s:
Eye-candy that just might make you full!
Somehow we knew, when we saw your complementary MacBook covers, that not only were the two of you incredibly perfect for each, but that we were all going to get along just fine. It gave us goosebumps watching the two of you as you saw each other for the first time on your wedding day, and Paul, your unbridled giggles at seeing your wife-to-be was the icing on the cake. You just know in that moment that this is a true partnership, amazingly strong and truly meant to be.
There’s something very special about having kids comprise your wedding party. They’re full of wonder and eagerness and yes, sometimes shyness. It was so cute seeing your nieces, Paul, walk down the aisle with huge grins on their faces holding up a banner with, “Uncle Paul, here comes your girl!” During your ceremony, even though we had already heard a couple of the stories from your courtship that Rev. Bill related to your guests, we loved experiencing them again and watching your reactions to them. Speaking of reactions, Liz, that series of the two of you while you’re trying to squeeze Paul’s ring onto his finger made us and everyone else laugh.
Paul–a Belgian beer bar for your guests? Nice! It was all we could do not to put our cameras down for a spell during cocktail hour to pour a tall Chimay Blue. What a fantastic idea! Everything you had for your guests’ experience, from the beer to the charcuterie to the cupcake favors had purpose and meaning, which was certainly not lost on anyone there.
Sometimes we just can’t believe our luck. We so loved spending time with you and your families over your wedding weekend and are so grateful for your continued trust and friendship. Congratulations and we can’t wait to see you both again soon!
