Wow, I don't know where to begin to share with you all this beautiful childhood love story between Anna and David. It all began when David first fell in love with Anna at a park in their hometown in Chicago. At Anna's 12th birthday party, David asked her father for her hand in marriage. Her father graciously offered David a piece of cake. =) Anna shared that David was the only guy who officially got her father's approval before his passing.

After thirty something years of living separately in different states, Anna and David reunited on Anna shortly relocated from Las Vegas to Houston to start a new life with David. The two lovebirds were planning to do a simple marriage license signing and save their big wedding day for November of 2015. After much thought, David contacted aprettybox and shared his vision of an intimate and meaningful wedding ceremony because he wanted something special for the love of his life.

aprettybox was on board to plan from day one! We had 16 days to pull everything together--Timelines were created, budgets reviewed, wedding gown/suit purchased, venues visited and booked, and a power team of vendors were formed. With limited time, most of the vendors were all booked but we were determined to make this happen. The amazing team of vendors who collaborated with aprettybox to bring David and Anna's vision to life were Lary's Design, Violinist Cameron Keys, Makeup/Hair Stylist Katie, Perry's Steak House, and House of Blooms.

On their wedding day, Anna and David were married by the groom's father. Closest of friends came to witness their love and commitment for each other. Anna described the day to me as magical, a dream come true. I am beyond honored to have been been part of their special day and also rehired for full wedding services for their big wedding November 2015! Thank you Anna and David for trusting me to be by your side from day one again!
