These two share a deep love for NC, Cary in particular, but actually met six years ago at Iowa State University. She is a Ph.D in plant genetics and he is an IT Specialist and between them is a cat – Pacifica – that they adore. Andrew proposed to Anna while on a family vacation at the Salkantay Pass en route to Machu Picchu in Peru. How is that for a WOW?!?!
Anna and Andrew not only love this area, but, happily for us, they also fell in love with our indoor and outdoor spaces and chose to get married at Chatham Station. Naturally, we were excited to host them!
The First Look
Anna specifically loved our outdoor spots at Chatham and she shared her First Look with Andrew behind the wall of trees we have near the train tracks. It was lush and lovely. Photographers find the most wonderful spots in and around our venue to grab images, and photographer Christian Reyes was no exception working with this couple.
The ceremony was out on the patio underneath a beautiful clear tent, complimented with string lights. Anna was escorted down the aisle by her father to meet Andrew. The white roses and greenery offered a lovely backdrop on Chatham’s herringbone wall. Everything from the tent and lights to the flowers and color palette was elegant and serene.
The dance floor was set up inside and the bar outside, so everyone could spread out and enjoy themselves and there was easy flow between the two through our garage/bay doors.
Anna and Andrew repurposed the background from their ceremony and had an intimate sweetheart table for their reception. Guests enjoyed watching the couple’s first dance together as husband and wife and were visible moved as each danced with their parents. The day was truly filled with palpable joy and affection for these two.
The newlyweds and Chatham Station are happy to share the vendor list with you.
