From Brittany Lauren Photography...Anna first laid eyes on Max at All Saints School in September of 1999. Anna was entering the 5th grade, and Max was transferring in as a 6th Grader. Anna was immediately smitten with Max, but it took him a little while longer to reciprocate Anna's love. They started dating in high school at the age of 16 and fell in love very quickly. Max proposed to Anna under a meteor shower in Eastern Oregon on August 13, 2012. Anna was holding a can of Bud Light when Max dropped to one knee, flashed his million dollar smile and asked her, "Will you marry me?"

The two were married at The Historic Benson Hotel on October 12, 2013. It is one of Portland most oldest and most magnificent hotels! They call it the "residence of the Presidents" because every U.S. President has stayed there. The most important aspect of the wedding was for Anna and Max to stay true to who they are. They didn't want anything lavish and over the top, but wanted to make sure their day was timeless, classic, and chic! They picked a color palette of black, gold, and blush pink, the bridesmaids wore full length black gowns, and all the men donned tuxedo's. There was a very subtle 1920s nostalgic feel to the day with a hint of modern glitz and glam added in.
