I am so excited to introduce you to Shelby and Anthony! We can’t wait for their wedding on Saturday at Maryland Live! Casino, yes you read that correctly a CASINO! We can't wait to bring their dream vision to life. Learn more about this wonderful couple below!
How did the two of you meet?
Anthony and Shelby met through a mutual friend at a softball tournament. When they were introduced, Shelby instantly knew that Anthony was the man she wanted to marry. They found each other on social media that night and after a few 'likes' and flirty 'comments', they messaged each other and haven't gone a day without talking since.
Shelby, what do you love about Anthony?
I love Anthony's ability to make an entire room laugh. I love his ability to keep me calm in a world full of disruption. And I love that he is dedicated to his work and building the best future for his family.
Anthony, what do you love about Shelby?
I love Shelby's ability to stay positive, no matter how negative a situation, she always sees the glass half-full. I also love that she allows me to just be me!
What is something special about the two of you?
Anthony has a 7-year-old daughter, Taylor. She's so special. She has welcomed Shelby into her life with open arms and is just as excited about the wedding day as we are.
What do you like to do as a couple in your free time?
What is free time? Shelby is a graphic designer by trade and Anthony is in sales and such a people-person. Their passions inspired them to start their own apparel company (Alpha Graphics and Apparel) as a side business. Together they design streetwear clothing, sports uniforms, event shirts, etc. They also use their platform to donate/give back to local charities and set-up their merchandise at sporting events.
What are a few of your favorite things?
Aside from sports, a few of our favorite things are live concerts (esp. Luke Combs), bonfires, Truly Lemonade, and cuddling up as a family with our two Husky puppies (Luna and Apollo) for movie nights.
What does your dream wedding look like?
We hope that our wedding encapsulates who we are as a couple. Yes, we are fun and energetic people, but we're also both hopeless romantics. We want everyone to feel the romance and love. We want our guests to feel like they have been transported to a different space when they enter our reception. And then of course once the dance floor opens, you won't see us at the table for the rest of the night.
Why did you choose to work with Social Graces?
We chose to work with Social Graces because in just one introductory email, Katie felt like she was our best friend. She brings a sense of calmness to any situation with just her smile. Planning a wedding amidst the pandemic is no easy task for any bride, and somehow, Katie made it feel seamless. We read so many of the Social Graces reviews before choosing our planner and they are absolutely spot on.
