Anastasia and Bryan decided to have a gorgeous winter Charlotte wedding since they are high school sweethearts from the area. Being married to my high school sweetheart, you know they hold a dear place in my heart! They have lived through high school, going to separate colleges, and now while Anastasia is in medical school. They both grew up in Fort Mill, although they both made their way to South Carolina from California.
Anastasia and Bryan are so sweet and they love hard on their family and friends, with lots of memories, photos, and tears! It was very apparent throughout our time planning their wedding, and their wedding weekend, that their friends and family truly admire and respect them and their relationship. They love spending time with their family and friends, even when her parents were living in Wisconsin! Don’t worry – they moved back very quickly.
Anastasia wanted to play off of the fall/winter theme of her wedding without being too much resemblance to the holidays. She chose December as her wedding month so that she would be done with exams and so she and Bryan could go to Europe for two weeks on their honeymoon. She even took an exam the Thursday before the wedding! I’m so glad I was able to help relieve some of the wedding stress for her during the planning process while she was in school. We went with a wine and blush pink color palette, complementing the gold sequined bridesmaid dresses. Anastasia is a girly girl and wanted glam! We also worked on a ruffle cake tier with a neutral white cake tier and a gold glam tier on her cake, perfectly tying in all of her design wants. We also incorporated tacos and empanadas as a nod to Bryan’s Guatemalan heritage. Anastasia had a gorgeous wedding gown too!
Anastasia and Bryan, I hope you have and achieve everything you ever want in life! And I’m so glad you are doing it together!
