Antrim 1844



Anna Reynal and Dani Leigh

Garrett and I crossed paths multiple times as teenagers before truly meeting as we grew up in nearby towns in the Baltimore area. Our friendship began after we sat next to each other in an accounting class in our Junior year at the University of Maryland in College Park, where we both attended college. After continuing to grow our friendship and spending a semester apart when Garrett studied abroad in Florence, we finally began our relationship in our Senior year of college. We graduated, both moved to Baltimore, became CPA’s studying together everyday and continued our relationship as we both started our careers in Public Accounting. Two years after moving to Baltimore we moved into our first apartment and got a puppy together. Her name is Nelly and she completed our family.

Five days before our five year anniversary, Garrett proposed in historic Fells Point in downtown Baltimore and surprised me when all of our family and friends waited inside a restaurant to celebrate with us. Together we decided to get married on May 11th, 2019. May 11th was a very special day to my family as it was my fathers birthday whom lost his battle with cancer when I was a sophomore in college. May 11th, will now be a constant reminder of joy and love and we can continue to keep my fathers memory alive. I know he would have been happy to share his birthday with this milestone in my life.

Our wedding took place at the historic bed and breakfast, Antrim 1844, famous for their amazing gardens. I wanted nothing more, but to be married outside in the spectacular gardens. On the day of the wedding, the weather was looking questionable and we had to make the decision to risk having it outside with rain or have it inside. I decided to let my now husband make the call as I knew he would know what to do and he made the decision for us to have it outside in the gardens. Our entire bridal party and myself got down the aisle and the rain held out. As soon as I got under the Chuppah with my husband, covered by father’s tallis (the covering/roof of the Chuppah), a 2 minute drizzle happened. We like to think it was my father looking down on us and letting us know he was there. The rain stopped and our beautiful ceremony continued. The rest of the night was so joyous and fun. We danced the night away with our amazing families and friends. It. Was. Perfect.
