Anna & Billy | Palm Harbor White Chapel Wedding

** WARNING – There are a crap ton of images because I couldn’t narrow it down **

I’ve known Anna since she was in elementary school.  She went to school with my oldest (and I was really trying to find an old photo but I couldn’t find one lol).  About 4 years ago, she packed up her life, moved to Knoxville to start over and her life completely changed.

Billy.

That’s how it changed.  It always sounds so cliche’ when you say that two people are perfect for each other but he is her yang, the perfect fit for each other and it shows with every look they give one another.

Saturday wasn’t any different.  The tears, the laughs and the memories that were made will be ones that they will cherish forever.  Coming back to Palm Harbor and getting married at the Palm Harbor White Chapel, was perfect for them.  They transformed the Palm Harbor White Chapel into a gorgeous St. Patrick’s day in July wedding (St. Patrick’s day is Billy’s favorite holiday and their “dating” anniversary).

Thanks to all the vendors that made their day perfect!

Billy’s mom walked in as Anna was getting dressed and really didn’t pay attention at first.  Then she stopped and looked at Anna.  Real moments people….real moments.
