Anna & Lee hosted a gorgeous Carmel Country Club wedding in the late August Charlotte heat…and every second of the wedding was fun, heartfelt and full of joy!
When I walked into the ladies locker room Anna told me that she felt like she could go run a few miles, ha! She was ready to get this marriage thing done, and finally become Mrs. Decker. Her and Lee live in Alabama and so wedding planning has sometimes been a bit overwhelming with the travel involved, I mean who wants to cart a wedding gown on a commercial airline? Just so many bits and pieces of a wedding and doing it from afar is never easy, believe me! Will and I planned our Baltimore wedding after we had already settled down here in Charlotte and it was a miracle we survived 😉 You know what helps? Having an amazing support system and detail-oriented mother!
Lori (Anna’s mom!) was such a great MOB to work with. She was easy to talk to and on top of all the tiny details that can make or break a wedding day. I was so happy when I looked around at the wedding reception and saw both Lori and Chip dancing and laughing, right next to Lee’s mom Karen. I’m sure it is bittersweet on your child’s wedding day, but to be able to rejoice and celebrate such a great match is something I know every parent looks forward to. I hope to have many many more years to wait for such a feeling…but I tear up at every wedding just watching the pride and joy parents have during those special moments with their beloved children.
