A Starry Celebration by Brandy & Beau
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

I lean on the serious side, so I truly admire couples that take a light-hearted and fun-loving approach to planning their wedding day.  (And this is already the second one of the year, mmm 2013 is shaping up quite nicely so far)! Annikki and Chris have celebrated a young-at-heart kind of love since they met in 2007, when, at their first meeting Chris warned her not to fall in love with him!  Nearly five years later their fresh approach to life and love was infused into a sweet, thoughtful celebration that included elements of stars, paper florals, and Chris’ adoration of comic books.  Enjoy these darling photos of their central Florida nuptials by Brandy & Beau

In 2011, Chris started their four year anniversary month with a surprise every day.  On September 8th, he woke Annikki up and blindfolded her at 4:30am for a surprise adventure to the Kennedy Space Center.  Chris suggested that they go on the Shuttle Launch Experience. After exiting the ride, they were surrounded by little LED lights simulating a moon experience. He asked Annikki if she knew why he had brought her there, and said “I brought you here because I love you to the moon and back!”  Then, he got on his knee and proposed.  Thus, the couple married at The Lake Mary Events Center in front of a backdrop of 1,001 stars.

The reception was a wonderland of yellow, navy, and candlelight.  They wove Chris’ love of comics into the day by wrapping up the cardbox in comic strip newspaper, having the flower girl toss comic-book heart cut-outs, and Annikki even arranged for a Batmobile groom’s cake!
