Their wedding day was finally here and that morning, to no ones surprise, Eric went for a run. He didn’t go for a 1 mile run or an 8 mile run. No, Eric went for an 18 mile run, which for him is no biggie. And lets be honest, it took a lot of convincing from her bridesmaids for Anne to decide to forgo an equally long run that morning. Both accomplished runners in their own right, Eric currently holds the world record for treadmill marathon running and Anne competes in marathons most people could only dream of getting through the first tenth of. It’s safe to say, I feel a little bit cooler and less athletic knowing them. : )
Running is a huge part of their love story… From meeting at a marathon, to running together all over the country, their shared love for this activity is part of the reason why they are the perfect match. They encourage and support one another in races and in life’s day to day hurdles. And the best part is, they are one another’s biggest fans. You only need to spend 5 minutes with them and see the way they lean into one another and laugh together to figure this out.
Anne and Eric’s wedding at The Meadowlands was a beautiful celebration with not a detail overlooked. Wildflower arrangements and sterling silver vintage details complimented the mansion’s gorgeous decor and intimate gardens. Guests floated inside and out enjoying music from a jazz duo and amazing food from the super talented Marcia Selden Catering & Event Planning. It was perfection.
Anne & Eric – You two are an unstoppable team and a couple that I know will continue to run through life side by side accomplishing great things. Chris and I are honored to know you both and your families and to have captured your special day! CONGRATS!
Anne & Eric had their First Look in the gardens at The Meadowlands…
With fresh flowers and delicate fountain, it was the perfect place for such a special moment.
How adorable are these flower girls?! Too cute!
One of my favorites!
Anne, you are seriously GORGEOUS. End of story.
Love this one!
Oh you two… another one of my favs!
Just love this one…
Anne had a comic strip that she cut out and has kept for years… She wanted to incorporated it into the wedding day and it fit perfectly with the stone escort cards (which to give to credit Eric found during some long walks at the beach). : )
I absolutely love working with Marcia Selden Catering & Event Planning!
Such a talented and amazing team and I love seeing the creative and tasty recipes they come up with!
Anne has one of the best whole-hearted laughs… Ever.
Their cake was so awesome – the amount of detail was truly incredible!
One of the best moments of the night was Anne and her maid of honor leading the band for a song! There was definitely not lack of energy or choreography! : )
