Annie and Steve knew each other from high school in Auburn, Alabama, then their paths crossed decades later once again in Maryland. “I love throwing in that I dated his best friend,” shared Annie.
Steve proposed New Year’s Eve. “I had given up he would ever propose so I had no idea. He kept suggesting romantic spots but I didn’t want to fight the traffic or crowds. So he finally had to just propose right there at home.”
Twenty guests were in attendance for their intimate wedding ceremony at Dahlgren Chapel. “We tried to keep ceremony simple and short but loving and genuine. It’s hard to express the love I felt as I walked down the aisle and saw how absolutely magically my fiancée’s daughter had decorated the chapel. The beauty alone was breathtaking, but knowing it came from the very person I couldn’t wait to call family is beyond words.”
After the ceremony at Dahlgren Chapel in Boonsboro, the couple and their guests had dinner at The Main Cup in Middletown.
Steve is a construction manager and Annie is a piano teacher. They currently reside in Sharpsburg.
