One Year Anniversary!

One year later and I love you even more! Happy anniversary, Matt!

We chose to celebrate our anniversary all weekend because, well, why not?

Anniversary Dinner at TST

First up, dinner. Matt and I decided to have our anniversary dinner at the place where it all began, Thomas Street Tavern. 

You can read all about how we met {HERE}! The photo above was taken from our {engagement session}.

After dinner we came home and pulled the top layer of our wedding cake out of the freezer to thaw…

We had totally expected the cake to taste awful, but it was actually not that bad. I will say, after an entire piece we admitted it tasted “old.”

We also watched our wedding video {filmed by Isabels Corner Videography} for the FIRST TIME! Yes, the first time! Shortly after our wedding we received our video and decided it would be extra special to save it for our first anniversary, and I am so glad we did! There were so many special moments that I truly got to watch for the first time since the wedding went by so quickly. For brides on the fence about videography – DO IT. This
video captures more than pictures ever could and we will cherish it forever. We are so happy we booked a
videographer {last minute} as our wedding present to each other!

We also exchanged traditional first year wedding anniversary PAPER gifts…

 Tickets to a 3 day Bahamas cruise! We set sail this Friday!

    Oh my gosh, you were simply a stunning bride! That is the sweetest video I've ever seen! Our videographer ended up being a weirdo, unfortunately and put Bob Marley music to our wedding video. So not what we had in mind, ha! Happy Anniversary, enjoy your cruise lucky lady!!!! PS They only get better 🙂

    I've been slowly getting into folk music in the last couple of years or so ago and absolutely LOVE these songs you picked!! I just downloaded them from the Itunes store to play in my car on a sunny day! 🙂 And omg, the videographer you had is AMAZING! Reminds me a bit of "The Wonder Years". LOOOOOVE it! 🙂
