These two should look very familiar to you if you’re a regular here on the blog. Their beautiful faces were just featured recently for their Sippo Lake engagement photos.
You see, barely teenagers, Anja and Sean, by sheer luck and fate, meet on Twitter. A country border separated the two, but thanks to the internet, their worlds came a little bit closer together.
Years of being in a long distance relationships and many short trips back and forth from Canada and America and back, Sean would propose to his American girlfriend at the end of 2017.
The process from an immigrant to marry an American citizen is not for the faint of heart. It took almost a full year for Sean’s K-1 visa to be approved by US Immigration. Once approved, he and Anja had 90 days to say their vows.
Somehow, Anja and Sean pulled off their wedding in just over six weeks of Sean’s K-1 visa being approved. How incredible is that?!
So here we are, blog post day for the new Mr. and Mrs. Sean and Anja Graham. By the grace of God, Nickajack Farms in Tuslaw had a June date open for their wedding day.
One of my favorite parts of Anja and Sean’s Nickajack Farm wedding was the speech that Sean’s Father gave at the reception. He wasn’t made aware of the toast he was expected to give by the newlyweds, which made the toast that much special. Tears were shed from the proud poppa as he talked about the love he witnessed between Sean and Anja. Laughs were had about the lack of planning he had with the wedding travel from Canada to Ohio. And of course, memories were made that evening with his toast!
Anja and Rex, I sure hope you’re enjoying your time with Mickey Mouse! See ya in a couple days!!
