Anna and Ian met at the end of summer in 2014. They both were undergoing big life changes and were not actively looking for companionship. At the time, Ian was extremely busy traveling out of state with his electrical contracting company, and Anna had recently moved to the area, started a new job and was meeting new friends. It’s only in time that they were meant to be at the same place at the same time, meeting through mutual friends. Anna wanted to believe that Ian was “just another guy,” but that quickly changed over the course of the night. Before the night was over, they exchange numbers. It sounds cliche, but the moment Ian met Anna, he knew she was something more. Ian remained in constant contact with Anna the week after they had met, with good morning texts and checking up throughout the day, despite his busy schedule. Anna then realized that Ian was not “just another guy” and the couple quickly fell in love.
Now, for the proposal…
Ian called Anna at work one day telling her to take off work for a week in June because he had just booked a room at one of their favorite vacation spots, St. Michaels, MD. Anna was hesitant and worried about taking off work because this trip was only 2 weeks away. Anna’s boss did approve the vacation and 2 weeks later Ian and Anna were on their way to St. Michaels, MD. For dinner one night, they went to a little crab shack across the the bay. Ian kept his cool throughout the entire dinner. They ventured back to the hotel and Anna walked into their room to 2 dozen red roses in front of the huge bay window as the sun was setting. Anna turned around in shock and Ian got down on one knee and proposed. The couple enjoyed a bottle of their favorite wine, Frogs Leap Merlot, out on the deck watching the sunset.
How romantic! Did you get goosebumps after reading their story? I know I did. ❤
This beautiful couple’s wedding took place on May 12, 2017 at the Inn at Leola Village. Their ceremony and celebration was at the Inn’s Casa di Fiori venue; a gorgeous indoor space filled with so much charm! Although the weather wasn’t very spring-like, the day was perfect! It rained just a little bit, but hey, that’s good luck, right?! I loved everything about Anna and Ian’s wedding day, and I enjoyed spending time with them, their awesome bridal party, and sweet families and friends!
Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Reddinger! I am so happy for you both, and I can’t wait to see where life takes you. I just know it’ll be amazing! Xoxo!Heading down to what Anna refers to as their “Faux First Look.” ❤Anna and Ian had a choreographed first dance.
