What is your favorite wedding season and why?

Spring! When the weather starts getting warm again, the Courtyard really comes alive! You can’t beat the jasmine blooming on the pergola as a beautiful location to say your vows. 

What is your favorite wedding tradition and why? 

The first dance! I’ve seen hundreds of first dances and I still sometimes get emotional watching this moment. I love seeing how excited and happy they are and it still gets me after all this time! Also, I love an original first dance song. 

What is your favorite CG signature cocktail and why?

The Say “I Do” Sangria! I love how you can customize the sangria to the season you’re getting married. We offer red and rosé sangria, and those happen to be two of my beverages of choice!

What is your favorite item on the CG menu and why? 

Our Tapas station. It’s so unique and really showcases the culinary team’s talent! I love the paella and patatas bravas! I also LOVE late night snacks! Anyone will tell you I’m a big fan of french fries, so what’s better than having them paired with a mini slider and passed around the dance floor after you’ve had a chance to work up an appetite!

Quarantine Edition

Favorite quarantine past-time?

I’ve been doing a lot of reading outside!

Have you picked up any new hobbies during quarantine? 

My fiance and I have been doing a lot of gardening. So far we’ve got 3 tomato plants, 3 different kinds of pepper plants, 2 jalapeño plants, a cucumber plant, 2 orange trees, a lime tree, 3 jasmine plants and a lot of flowers!

What is your favorite thing you’ve cooked during quarantine?

Homemade soft pretzels! They were so yummy!

How has your routine changed since you started #WFH?

I’ve been trying to stay active! I was going to barre classes before the studios closed, so I’ve been trying to do the online classes at home. I think staying active is really important, especially during this time!

Have you done any virtual Cannon Green tours?

Yes!

What do you miss most about going into work?

I miss working with my team! And seeing all of our sweet couples!

One last note from Anna:

I can’t wait to get back to celebrating with all of my couples! I’ve missed them and I know we will all have so many more reasons to celebrate once this is all over!

Putting the Green in Cannon Green: Spotlight on Anne Bowen Dabney

Step inside Cannon Green and you can’t escape Anne Bowen Dabney’s mark. It’s a subtle look, one that’s meant to accentuate the beauty of the space rather than take a starring role. But that understated look adds an ethereal and natural quality to the restaurant. And that’s all thanks to Anne, who is responsible for all the green…
