Anna and Andrew met at the University of Illinois and while they are from out of state, the pair fell in love with Cary. When it was time to plan their wedding, they chose Premier to help them plan and Chatham Station as their venue. This wedding came together beautifully for the Ph.D. in plant genetics Anna, and IT Specialist, Andrew. 

A First Look

Andrew’s proposal was pretty spectacular. He hid a ring and travelled with it all the way to the Salkantay Pass enroute to Machu Picchu in Peru. These two are romantics and wanted a first look that matched that. Anna fell in the love with the green spaces around Chatham Station, so that is where photographer Christian Reyes captured their first moment together of the day.

The Ceremony

The ceremony was out on the patio underneath a beautiful clear tent with the string lights.

Anna was escorted down the aisle by her father to meet Andrew.

The white roses and greenery offered a lovely backdrop on the Chatham’s herringbone wall. 

The Happy Couple


Traditional and elegant decor–mostly green and white

We love that the bridesmaids had two toned dresses and different styles. It gave each woman their own style and confidence while fitting in effortlessly with the theme.


Having the dance floor inside and the bar outside allowed for a nice indoor outdoor flow to the event thanks to the garage doors. The couple’s guests were visibly moved as Anna and Andrew had their first dance followed by dances with their parents. Anna and Andrew chose to have an intimate sweetheart table for their reception and the herringbone centerpiece of their ceremony was repurposed.
