Eisenhower House Wedding Anne and Chris

Their first kiss was in the 6th grade. They both have large families. Anne is the youngest and the last of four sisters to be married. I have had the pleasure of photographing Myra’s,¬† Emily’s and now Anne’s wedding (Elizabeth was married 9 years ago also at Eisenhower House.). Surrounded by over 280 friends, nieces, aunts ,uncles, cousins and nephews they have created a family legacy that endures from generation to generation. The ceremony was on the steps of Eisenhower House with Newport Tent creating¬† the tented reception on the lawn. Exquisite Events produced the wedding day and Perfect Surroundings created a lounge area at one end of the tent. Long wooden tables provided the guest seating along with the flower pieces by Jill Rizzo Flowers. The band One Step Ahead kept everyone¬† dancing the night away. One of the highlights of the day was Anne and her father driving the Bugeye Sprite (courtesy of Chris’ Uncle Chris) to the ceremony. After the ceremony Anne and Chris drove away in the Sprite.

Here are some documentary images that tell the story of the day. There are over 100 images, so grab a cuppa and enjoy!
