Bridal feature: Anna and Landen Burgett – Nov. 17, 2018
HOW THEY MET
Anna and Landen have always known each other, having gone to school together from kindergarten through 12th grade. They actually “dated” in third grade and were high school sweethearts. Landen asked Anna out in October of their senior year, and they have been together ever since. They have grown up together, and now they will grow old together.
One of their most memorable dates was star-gazing in the back of his great-grandfather’s truck. It was just the two of them, bright stars, and they slow danced in the moonlight that night.
WHAT THEY LOVE
Anna loves all the little thoughtful things Landen does for her and how hard he works to provide. Landen loves how Anna always puts him and others above herself and has a giving spirit.
Landen proposed Oct. 13, 2017. The couple was at the beach. one of their favorite vacation spots, and they were getting ready to go to dinner. He called Anna out to the balcony to look at the waves, and they were taking pictures. The next thing Anna knew, Landen was on one knee, telling her how much he loved her and wanted to spend forever with her. It was just the two of them, and it couldn’t have been any more perfect.
Anna and Landen chose Nov. 17, 2018, as their wedding date because that time of year was not too hot or cold. They were married at 3 p.m. with Sunny Givens officiating. They chose The Givens House at Glenn Hill in Town Creek because the atmosphere it gave off was fitting for them – elegant, rustic, antique and unique. The wedding day itself was a dream come true, as they were gathered together in front of their families and friends to share the best day ever.
Their favorite wedding moment had to be when they both said “I Do” because it meant they would always have each other in good days and bad, in sickness and health, forever and ever.
Anna’s advice to newlyweds, and to couples that have been together for a long time, is to always keep God first, never go to bed angry, always kiss goodnight and love without fail – even on the hard days.
