The ProposalMatt proposed to Annie on the last weekend of the summer in 2016. Matt invited their friends together to “hang out” while they were in Ocean City, Maryland. “It then dawned on me that we were on the perfect deck to watch the sunset,” Annie remembers. “Then, he got down on one knee while the song Sweet Annie played in the background.”
The VenueMatt was researching wedding venues and came across Tidewater Inn. It had all the components they couple wanted in a wedding venue. “We were looking for a destination feel where everyone could stay at the wedding venue and enjoy the entire weekend together.”
The Wedding GownAnnie wore an Enzoani dress. It happened to be the very first dress she tried on. She chose this dress because it was both glamorous and modern.
The Cocktail HourThey had a cocktail hour in a large decorated tent right after the ceremony. “This way we were able to relax before jumping into the wedding reception,” Annie and Matt share. They had a guitarist playing classics during the cocktail hour to set the mood.
The Best Moment“I loved seeing all my family together,” Annie recalls. “It was so great to see everyone having a great time.” But her absolute favorite moment was when her maid of honors pulled out her old diary. “They started to read some entries from my ‘obsessed with boys’ stage. It was very entertaining to say the least!”
The HoneymoonAnnie and Matt had a surprise honeymoon! “My mom had been planning it for months and did not tell us where we were going until after the wedding,” Annie explains. “We were ecstatic to find out we were going to the Caribbean. She sent us on a first-class trip to Antigua. We had the best time hiking, swimming, snorkeling, relaxing at the spa, but the best part was just enjoying each other’s company. We played a lot of CARDS! Who knew playing cards would be so fun.”
Their Best Advice“Make sure to breath, and on the wedding day, have fun! Don’t let anything get in the way of you having the best day ever!"
