Anne Marie & Thomas Wedding: Kennedy School

Anne Marie is so near and dear to my heart! I've known her since she was a freshman in H.S. and she is one of the sweetest, most genuine people you'll ever meet, and she always has a smile on her face! :)

After college she applied for a job that was perfect for her, in Mississippi. Thomas, the well-loved and respected assistant to the Mayor, responded to her job application and set up an interview with Anne Marie. This was the beginning of their relationship and the fun that was to come! And they are so well suited for one another.

Their long anticipated wedding day involved so much planning because not only were two people and two families coming together, but also two regions: the south and the northwest. Even though they were planning the wedding from a distance, they were so detail focused that nothing was missed. Thomas, a strong planner himself, took the lead on planning the wedding and the rehearsal. And on the day of their wedding, Mississippi and Oregon came together in a beautiful way.

Thomas and Anne Marie were so flexible and easy-going when the day came, and so did the Oregon rain! What was supposed to be an outdoor wedding had to be changed to an indoor wedding at the last minute, but you would hardly even know it. And our outdoor photo plans were moved to a lovely spot under a canopy of trees. By the end of the night, no one even made mention of the weather or the change because everything about the day was so much fun.

I loved the special focus on family their day had. Anne Marie and Thomas chose to have their family by their side during the wedding. Thomas had his dad as his best man and his sisters as his attendants. Anne Marie had her sister, brother, and long time friend Sarah as her attendants. In addition, their pastor who married them was family as well! So special.

Their reception was filled with laughter, and dancing with friends and family late into the night. It was such a wonderful day from start to finish, and we wish them both the best in their new life together!
Much love to you two! xo
