One Year

marriage anniversary, couple photography, first wedding anniversary photoshoot

Day-to-day can move slow but reflecting on an entire year will put into perspective how fast life can go by. I can’t believe Tim and I are already celebrating one year of marriage tomorrow. Most people say the first year is the hardest, but to be honest it’s sailed so smoothly for us both.

This year we both intended on traveling for our anniversary; however, with adjusting to home ownership we both wanted to focus on making our house feel like a home. We are homebodies at heart. I wanted to have some pictures to add to our staircase and suddenly my vision to celebrate our one year with an anniversary photo shoot with the talented Shelby Rae Photographs came to light.

We didn’t do professional engagement photos, so other than wedding photos we didn’t have anything to place throughout our home. Returning to our wedding venue, Little River Farms, for the occasion would be the perfect setting to reflect on our first year of marriage together.

I went to a wholesale florist and purchased pretty blooms and created my first DIY bouquet. Let’s look past the fact that it’s held together with a rubber band! I decorated our cake topper and set the table with pieces from our wedding and our favorite wine. I also wasn’t complaining we got to bite into our wedding cake a week early 😉 I packed my memory box from our wedding in case we wanted to use anything at the shoot. We ended up re-reading our vows to each other and it was such a sweet moment, not to mention way less intimidating the second time around without the crowd 😉

Picking out the dress wasn’t an easy task (I may have ordered 6 or 7 total) but the accessories were a no-brainer. Like I needed persuading to slide on my sparkly wedding shoes again! Although you may notice I switched into another pair once we ventured off the property for more natural backdrops.

Here are some of the highlights from our shoot.

I took today off so Tim and I can celebrate a day early and venture up to the North GA mountains to visit a pumpkin patch and take in the fall mountains.  If you’re considering a one year wedding anniversary photo shoot I can’t recommend it enough! Follow me over on Instagram stories to see what we’re up to!

  • I still have so much holiday shopping to do but I know my Amazon prime membership is coming in clutch this weekend! Spoken like the true millennial I am 🙌🏼 If you have any Amazon recommendations, let me know in the comments! I haven’t stopped wearing these OTK boots ($79) or petting this pink fur coat 😂 Literally, I always love to touch all the soft things. Tim always points it out when we’re shopping and I’ll subconsciously touch the racks to feel how soft things are. Anyone else??

  • Tonight I was so hungry when I got home from work I ended up eating chips and salsa, pita and hummus, and granola for dinner 🤣 Double tap if you know that struggle! I shared this look on strawberrychicblog.com today 🍓 Go view the post to see the cutest little Christmas tree in the background! Everything but the earrings are linked in the LIKEtoKNOW.it app, but if you were wondering they were $5 from @walmart 🙌🏼.

  • These pretty blush booties are finally back in stock in all sizes and 20% off! They are seriously so comfortable and I’ve already worn them multiple times since getting them last month. Wearing my normal size in boots and I highly recommend picking up a pair 💕 They’re actually more neutral and easier to style than you would think! I’ll share a few looks with them in my stories.
