Anna and Rafe met at their younger siblings’ high school graduation from Battle Ground Academy in 2006. As an early Christmas present a few years later, the pair stayed at Château Élan in Atlanta, Georgia, where Rafe proposed after a romantic dinner on the first night of their stay.
The couple wanted their wedding to be an intimate, glamorous affair, surrounded by only their family and a few close friends.
“I wanted to somehow combine my more over-the-top style with the comfortable, whimsical way we carry out our daily lives,” Anna explains.
The idyllic Autumn Crest Farm (which belongs to the groom’s family) was the perfect setting for Anna and Rafe’s fairytale Easter weekend wedding. From the cascading flower arrangements in shades of cream, pale pink, and peach to the decadent strawberry lemon cake, every breathtaking detail culminated in the newlyweds’ real-life “happily ever after.”
“Enjoy every second… it flies by! Try to remember to slow down, take it all in, and love every moment.”
