One Year Anniversary

Photography by Blossom Lane Photography


I hope you all enjoyed the collage of photos and the slideshow/video our photographer created. Even though it is a little bit long, I think the slideshow captured the day so well from beginning to end. Every time I watch it, it gives me all the feels.  I may have watched it a million times :)

I seriously can't believe it has been a year! I know everyone says this, but it really feels like it just happened and was just planning all the details. It was truly the most memorable day and enjoyed every second of it. A big thank you to all my vendors that pulled everything together. Regardless of the storm (yes, it was down pouring like no other!), everything was beautiful. I want to relive it all over again especially all the dancing. I love how the dance floor was always full (as you can see in the video/slideshow). Every music was spot on!

Not only was the day amazing, but the person who I married is also amazing and couldn't have asked for a better man to spend the rest of my life with. Our life has changed so much since last year, and I am so blessed that Tre has been by my side through it all. As much as cancer as impacted me, I know it is a lot on him as well. He has never missed a doctor's appointment, treatment, leaves work midday when I need him (even if he just got there!), and stays up all night with me when I'm in pain. I am one lucky girl. He is my HOTY (Husband Of The Year). I am looking forward to many more anniversaries!
