We first met Anna & Michael when we were documenting Kari and Patrick’s gorgeous wedding last year, Anna was one of Kari’s amazing bridesmaids. About a month ago Anna sent us a message saying they were engaged and getting married + they wanted us to be their photogs!! Our hearts melted immediately and we were ecstatic.
So this past weekend we all met early morning at the Ponce and documented their engagement session. And talk about two of the sweetest people you will ever meet… they are the definition of two down to earth kindred spirits deeply in love.
Michael first saw Anna three years ago at one of the local bars in Nashville where they both lived. She was there with some great friends and the koozie in her had just happen to say hotty toddy on it. So Michael use that as his way to strike up a conversation with the woman who just stole his heart at first sight. To his amazement it worked. It also just so happen that they were both originally from Marietta GA… destiny was at work. That conversation began their love story.
They begin dating but then Michal had to move back to Marietta so for a year they dated long distance with Michael headed up to Nashville every second he had to visit the love of his life. A year later Anna moved back home and they have been inseparable ever since.
We also learned that Anna is fabulous at playing the piano. I can just see these two 10 years from now, Anna playing the piano at Christmas, Michael by her side, the tree all light up and the kidsgathered around singing with them.
I can’t even with the dress Anna brought with here, OMG is was GORGEOUS!!
We also took advantage of the Christmas trees outside of the Ponce. It provided the perfect place to dance under the lights.
