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 haven’t stopped listening to Taylor Swift since the concert on Friday. It was seriously the best concert I’ve ever been to! Sorry BSB and Britney 🤷🏼‍♀️ If she’s coming to your city I can’t recommend #reputationtour enough! Have you been yet??

A big thank you to @joulesclothing for gifting me this gorgeous dress. I’m so glad I was introduced to their bright and colorful pieces and I’m officially obsessed💕 And thank you @ballcanning and @lacroixwater for the cutest #bloggerbrunch at @hotelatavalon | #tbscon #atlantablogger #theblogsocieties #cultivatingcommunity #hotelatavalon #lacroix #ballcanning #joulesclothing

Click the link in my bio to shop this look. My top is only $16 and I’m wearing Valentino dupes🍓Happy Friday friends!  #liketkit http://liketk.it/2wUX5 @liketoknow.it
  • I challenge you to buy something way out of your comfort zone every now and then because you never know what may surprise you! This olive cropped jumpsuit was my surprise this week. Tim was even a fan and I thought he would hate it! He described it as “elegant but bossy” 🤣 Like this photo if you think he should narrate my next try on haul. Also, I have a lot of new faces around here so I just wanted to say a quick hello to my new friends👋🏼💕.

Coming to my YouTube channel this Sunday is an @oldnavy try on haul. I found so many cute basics for fall that are a heck of a lot better deal than the nsale 😜. I normally size down in Old Navy but I wanted the top to fold over the not so cute waistband.  I’m wearing a small for size reference.

My heels are a Valentino dupe from @amazonfashion and look just like the real deal! I linked the exact outfit on the shop page of my blog.

  • Is it possible to be impulsive but also an over analyzer? Because I feel like I am somehow! If I finally decide I need/want something, it has to get done right away. If my mind is on a project, I won’t take a break to eat until it’s done. If I’m on a health kick it’s all or nothing. If I’m craving cookies, I will slip on my flip flops and head to the store.

Last week I started shopping for a new blog design, and this weekend I made it happen! I’ve sat at my desk since 10am yesterday tweaking every little detail, and it was so worth the task. Take a peek at the new site and let me know what you think! The features look best on a desktop, but it is mobile friendly, too.
