Anthony summarized his own wedding day perfectly, have a read!:
Words can’t describe how amazing our day was. I got to marry my best friend and love of my life. As a wedding photographer, I have been to a lot of weddings and have seen many, many different versions of someone else’s perfect wedding – some more perfect than others. I wanted an absolutely perfect wedding for Courtney because she deserves nothing less. I gave my two cents wherever I could and I was (of course) in charge of hiring our photographer and videographer. I knew right away who I was going to choose for those roles. I worked with Mike and AWF at a wedding last year and was utterly blown away by their work. I knew I needed to have them.
Our wedding day finally arrived and I went in to it with absolutely zero nerves. I guess shooting weddings somewhat prepared me for my own wedding. I surprised Courtney by having our musician play “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri as she walked down the aisle. She wanted to walk down to that song SO bad, but we were limited to the church music. I pulled some strings and was able to arrange for that song to be played. Courtney was shocked. I saw tears streaming down her face as she walked toward me. I could not believe I was about to marry my best friend. And I still was not nervous. Courtney was glowing and so was I. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful.
Our reception was undeniably everything I could have imagined it would be. Everything came together PERFECTLY. From the live band, to the video crew, to the photographers, to the uplighitng, etc etc etc. Everyone could not stop complimenting our wedding. The quote “the best wedding I’ve ever been to” was thrown around quite a bit that night and I am so happy people felt that way. I wanted this wedding to be an absolute showstopper for Courtney and I feel that it truly was.
