Matthew and Anna’s love story is one that could be told through a movie, I’m convinced. They met as educators at the school they both taught at. But it’s their coaching positions over the Track + Field team that took their acquaintanceship to the next level. After the spring season Anna made the first move. She set up a time to debrief their coaching season together. That little “debrief” turned into a three hour long dinner that forever change the course of their story.

Matthew and Anna were married at the church that Anna grew up in. Their ceremony was a beautiful portrayal of Christ’ s love for us and His desire for us to know and love Him. They invited many of their students to attend their ceremony which made the clear presentation of the gospel even more beautiful!! Most of their students sat right beside where I was filming from my tripod and it was amazing to see all of them gathered together supporting these two!!

I mentioned in our last blog when I shared their sneak peek that my favorite moment from their day was when Anna walked down the aisle and Matthew saw her for the first time. But another one of my favorite things about their day was the dance party that ensued at their reception!! The dance floor was bumping all night long, which you’ll see in their film!! SO much so that there was barely any room to move around it!! So fun!!! 

Matthew + Anna, we are so thankful for you guys and grateful to have had the opportunity to document your beautiful day!! We hope this film serves as a memoir of “day one” of a new chapter in your story together and that you’ll cherish it for years to come!! Enjoy!!!
