Anyone who knows Matt and Anna can tell how in love they are. They light up when they are around each other. It's only natural that Saturday morning was truly a perfect day to tie the knot.
The gorgeous bride, Anna, spent the morning relaxing and getting ready at the church with her three bridesmaids: Becca, Andrea, and Hope. Look at that dress!
The handsome groom, Matt, also got ready at the church with his three groomsmen: Cameron, Jared, and Ryan. It was all laughter and fun with the gents!
Once the bride and groom were finished getting ready, there were some very tender moments. Matt and Anna wrote each other letters and read the them before the ceremony. Anna has a first look with her father, Ben. Matt and Anna hold hands as they pray together before going to the alter. Finally, before Anna enters the church, her bridesmaids pray over her.
The lovely couple held their ceremony at Cross Community Church in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. This is their home church, so it holds a special meaning to be united before God with their family, friends, and church family.
A word from Anna: "Matt and I grew up right down the street from each other. I had no idea that he was so close to me all throughout our childhood. He knew though. We ended up going to high school together and we both knew of each other, but nothing more than that. I would see him at Publix where he works, which is around the corner from where I lived (he had since moved). I would always say hi, and he would shyly say hi back. He finally messaged me on Facebook November 24, 2014, and the rest was history. Turns out he had a crush on me since freshman year of high school. He was way too nervous to approach me at school and too nervous to carry a conversation at work. But now, we are married and so in love."
The reception was at the Plaza Ballroom in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. It featured beautiful wood floors, exquisite wall decorations, and a stunning chandelier above the dance floor. It was the perfect evening full of delicious food, upbeat music, dancing, and love.
