When Anna came to us with the idea of her love story, we were so excited! Since Anna works as a news anchor, she had a bunch of great ideas of what she wanted to do with her story. Her plan was to film a storybook meeting, and then film what really happened. We thought it was such a great concept and right up our alley! So many couples meet in so many different ways these days, and we definitely think how Anna and Shelby met was so cute and fun. A great story of guy meets girl!
Take a look!
Now that you’ve met Anna and Shelby, you totally get a sense of who they are as a couple. Fun, loving, so happy! A perfect match!
Anna looked so lovely on her wedding day. Her Ines Di Santo dress and gloves were so hip, and makeup by Carola Myers with Hair by Jessie Silverman at Red Door in Tysons Corner really made for a great look. We loved how Shelby and Anna gave each other gifts too. It was such a great moment in the extended highlight.
It was so wonderful for their guests that everything was at The Willard InterContinental Hotel. The architecture of the Willard makes for such fantastic photos and video — as you’ll see in their highlight!
Anna and Shelby had an amazing vendor team too! They worked with Christina Canalez from the Willard, and Edge Floral Event Designers to create a beautiful ceremony and reception room. Gorgeous! Eli Turner took some amazing engagement and wedding photos as well. We here at Blue Sky Films love working with Eli, and jump at any chance we get.
As guests filed into the grand ballroom after cocktail hour, they were surprised to see the love story playing right before Anna and Shelby made their big entrance. All the guests loved it! Everyone was laughing and smiling–it definitely got the party started! Anna and Shelby said their guests talked about the love story video for weeks after the wedding!
Anna and Shelby were such a amazing couple to work with and had a fantastic wedding! We were so happy to be apart it! Congratulations!
