6th Anniversary!

I feel like I was just writing this post. Literally like it was yesterday. Yet here we are, a full year later.

We've had a busy year full of trips, home projects, birthdays, and just life in general. But thankfully there were no major crises, and we're all in good health. It's nice when life is just peaceful.

Anniversary time always makes me look back on our wedding day. The crisp details of the day are starting to get a bit fuzzy, so it's nice to have the pictures to look back on.

I loved my bouquet with the calla lilies sticking out of the top, giving it kind of an asymmetrical look. I should have had them saved somehow.

Our decor was so pretty. Those black table cloths really gave the reception some punch. They were my mom's idea. 

I learned calligraphy just so I could hand write all the invitations and the place cards. That was definitely a labor of love. 

Our drive from the church to the reception hall was maybe 10 minutes. The reception hall was right next to the hotel where I got ready, and then we stayed there for the night. So I rode in the limo-SUV from the hotel to the church for 10 minutes, and then we all rode back to the reception hall for 10 minutes. Complete waste of money, but it was fun! I don't think I even had time to finish that glass of champagne. 

Both our best man, my brother-in-law, and one of the groomsmen gave speeches. They were hilarious. HILARIOUS. I have them on video if you ever want to see them. Mostly because of the guys in particular, their stories, and the pre-gaming they had already done. 

Everyone danced. Everyone had a great time. We had the best DJ and an awesome playlist for the evening.

I mean, everyone danced. This is such a great picture of my aunt!

So thanks for coming down memory lane with me. I don't know how many years I have left on this earth, but I told Travis this morning: 6 years down, infinity to go! 

Do you dance at weddings? Did you dance at your own wedding?


  1. Happy Anniversary! The dancing pics are some of my favorites from our wedding too. We danced at our wedding but that was the first and only time! ;)

    1. Really? We love to dance! Usually it's only at the company holiday party or something similar now, but I've been known to cut a rug! We're not any good at it, but we have fun all the same.

  2. Heck yes I danced at my wedding! :)

    Happy 6th to you both!

  3. Happy belated anniversary! I wish I knew calligraphy. That's a cool skill to have! I did not dance at my wedding. We had a courthouse wedding. On a Monday. Then a giant outdoor pool party with a lot of family and friends a week later. A lot of fun, but dancing not included. Sort of weird, but it worked for us! :)

    1. Thank you! Sounds like you guys had a great wedding!

  4. Happy (a bit belated) Anniversary!! Looks like a completely wonderful day :) We definitely danced at our reception. My husband is a dancing machine!!
