Real Wedding: Anna & Carly

by :: ,

An Alchemy Exclusive! Anna and Carly were married at the beautiful Citizen Hotel. Our featured Bride and Groom are both teachers and they met at the school where they were both coaching (Head Cheerleader Coach and Head Football Coach resepectively). After 3 years of dating, Carly proposed to Anna on Christmas! There were many distracting gifts first, of course, and the ring was enclosed in a fuji film box with a big red bow! Can you say Merry Christmas?!

Their wedding was simply elegant, classic and beautiful. This was a black tie affair – and it tied in perfectly with the black, white and gold colors they chose for their palette. The florals stood tall on crystal candelabras and they were simply stunning – one of my favorite touches!

Anna looked beautiful walking down the aisle with her Father and her Step-Father (we thought this was a lovely way to honor both important Dads). The ceremony was absolutely beautiful! During the cocktail hour, while guests were enjoying small bites and drinks, we performed a “flip” (meaning we transformed the ceremony site into the reception) in just under an hour. We had an awesome team to make this happen and it turned out stunning!

The glitter cake pops escort cards were absolutely amazing and such a fun touch – they didn’t just look beautiful, they tasted DELICIOUS! Kudos to SweetCakes by Rebecca and her team! The reception went smoothly and when it came time for toasts, Carly did something so romantic and sweet! He had written a letter after the first night he met Anna – as a part of his toast, he read his letter aloud for all their friends and family. To give you the Cliff Notes, it consisted of him being very excited to meet such a beautiful girl and how he knew he would marry her one day! Talk about a tear jerker! This wedding was so fun and the DJ, Dominic, had everyone on the dance floor dancing all night!

Special Thanks to Our Vendor Team!
