Anne+Brian // Wedding in Raleigh, NC.

Anne and Brian!! It feels like we’ve known them forever, but that’s probably because when we’re not talking about weddings we’re messaging each other about Game of Thrones or Neku Atsume. These guys are possibly the nicest people on Planet Earth. We met Anne when she was a bridesmaid in Susan+Michael’s wedding. And I’m pretty sure Brian was there too, but we didn’t meet him then. But we LOVED Anne for her super kindness and gentle and wonderful demeanor, and we were SO excited when she emailed us about her wedding. And then we met Brian, who is ALSO some sort of kindness superhero and our hearts exploded. Anne sent us a Jon Snow Christmas card last year which we subsequently framed because yes, and Brian surprised us with dessert when we were at Sitti with other clients for dinner because there literally aren’t nicer people in this world. And because they are so nice, the rain gods decided to smile on them this day which was supposed to be entirely rained out, but only ended up sprinkling a bit at the reception (yay!). So we ended up with a beautiful ceremony at All Saints Chapel and then a tasty, tasty reception at Sitti. Because if you can’t tell, Anne and Brian have really good taste as evident by 1.) marrying each other, 2.) collecting cats via a cell phone app, 3.) providing us with a ton of garlic whip at their Sitti reception, and 4.) thinking that Jon Snow is way too good for Daenerys (there, I said it). Also, 99% of their wedding reception playlist was Prince, sooooo.
