Mel & Ana’s love story is extremely unique. They met (after being introduced by a friend on Facebook) in the Bangkok airport for the first time, while Anna was abroad in Thailand in the Peace Corps. They knew right away that they were made for each other. After Ana finished her time in Thailand, she moved in with Mel in Baltimore and they began their lives together. Currently, they’re on their way to Sweden where Ana is pursuing her dream in Peace Studies sponsored by Rotary International.
Their Airbnb in Mt. Vernon (and acted as rehearsal dinner location and day-of prep-space) was a home built in the 1890’s and one of the most beautiful spaces I have worked in!
They had a gorgeous, intimate ceremony in the woods and a reception at Corradetti Glass Blowing Studio, where guests were showered with amazing food, music and personalized chocolate favors with hand-stamped words of wisdom. All of the out-of-town guests received Baltimore-inspired gift bags. These ladies literally thought of everything.
They are a power couple and I cannot wait to see what they accomplish together. Their wedding day was a perfect example of making it about their guests, not only them. I am so thankful to be part of their lives and this story.
