A Harry Potter Themed Wedding | Mequon, Wisconsin | October 13, 2018
Anthony and Liane's Love Story:
"Anthony and I met working side by side at the restaurant Cask and Larder in Winter Park, Florida. He spent his days making salads, deviled eggs, and endless conversation, while my time was spent mixing doughnuts, biscuits, and wondering how one person could talk so much. He says he knew from the moment he saw me that I was the one. For me, it was the day I dropped chocolate all over the floor, twice, and he not only helped me clean it up, but he also took the blame.
In the food industry, your days off are never quite certain, and for a couple they hardly ever line up. But on March 7th, we had one of these rare days off together. We grabbed coffee, saw a movie, and then talked and laughed for 4 hours over dinner. When we got home, I put the leftovers in the refrigerator, turned the corner, and there he was on one knee with the biggest smile and a beautiful ring with a green stone for my secret inner Slytherin.
We talked about eloping at the courthouse, but ultimately decided that our families would probably be pretty upset and that we didn’t want to begin our married lives with that hanging over our heads. So we began the arduous process of planning a Wisconsin wedding from Florida, as we were moving there in August. The daunting task heightened my sometimes pessimistic tendencies, and in true Anthony form, his sunny-side up disposition brought it all back. Being the giant self-acclaimed Harry Potter nerd that I am, every time I saw a Harry Potter themed idea I would babble on and on about it, bombarding his phone with picture after picture of house themed cocktails, floating candles, and paper flowers made from book pages. So one day after about an hour of this behavior, he grinned and said, “Why don’t we just have a Harry Potter themed wedding?” After staring blankly for way too long, I responded with, “Are you serious?” and my Hufflepuff heart fell in love with him and his Gryffindor audacity all over again." - beautiful words from the Bride, Liane!
