Anna & Graham’s story started their senior year at Wake Forest University. Despite living across the hall from each other during their sophomore year, their paths didn’t cross until one night in February during their senior year. Anna & Graham were set up by mutual friends and the rest was history!
Graham popped the question on their vacation to Spring Island, South Carolina in front of the ruins of a Civil War-era tabby house overlooking the sound. The proposal got even better when Graham surprised Anna with all her family in town to celebrate. Needless to say, she said yes!
Their wedding took place on October 28, 2017. Anna and Graham had a beautiful ceremony at St. Gabriel’s Church followed by their reception at Myers Park Country Club. The reception space was dazzling with hundreds of market lights draping from the ceiling and jaw dropping chandeliers. The centerpieces alternated from short clusters to tall dramatic vases which gave the room a regal feel.
Guests loved Anna & Graham’s customized koozies and had a lot of fun with their Polaroid guestbook. The main focal point of the room was Anna & Graham’s five-tiered wedding cake. It was eye-catching with life-sized magnolia sugar flowers and edible lace detail on each tier.
Guests had a blast with the live band and the Wake Forest colored Mardi Gras beads. The night wrapped up with a hot dog food truck waiting for guests outside the venue as a late-night snack after the bubble send off. The newlyweds rode off in a golf cart (but not before making a quick trip to the hotdog stand to grab a few for themselves!).
