Anna + Jeremy’s Love Story
This is the love story of Anna, a beautiful girl from Missouri who travels to Las Vegas on a girls trip. While hanging at the pool she meets Jeremy, a handsome boy from Michigan who just happens to be in Vegas for a friends bachelor party. This is Anna + Jeremy’s love story.
You don’t expect to meet your soul mate in Las Vegas, but that’s exactly what happened for Anna and Jeremy. Over the next two years they not only fell in love but became best friends, realizing they truly are soul mates who met in a unique and special way.
Anna & Jeremy’s destination wedding to Traverse City was perfect. In Anna’s words:
“It’s hard to even find words to describe how loved we felt during the whole weekend. We had our closest friends and family in our favorite place on earth for four whole days, perfect weather, the most fun bridal party and groomsmen we could have ever asked for. The wedding itself was like a dream. The way I felt walking down the aisle toward Jeremy was like stepping into a fairy tale. The look on his face when he saw me, I will never ever forget. And, his brother grabbing his shoulder after the doors of the church opened will forever be a moment that I truly felt I was stepping into the exact family that I am supposed to be with and a last name that I’m proud to have. Having my dad give me away was also one of the best moments of my life. My dads not a super emotional guy but the little conversation we had right before walking down the aisle was one of the best moments of my life.”
Witnessing Anna & Jeremy’s beautiful day had special meaning for me. I’ve actually known Anna since she was a young girl in my dance classes in Missouri. For both of us to end up in beautiful Traverse City to celebrate her wedding day is just another unique twist on a fairytale story.
Thank you Anna and Jeremy for asking me to capture the memories of your day – it was amazing! Best wishes on this wonderful journey as you build your new lives together.
