Has it really been five years?

Today is our five-year wedding anniversary. Has it really been that long? I remember every detail of the day so vividly, it feels like yesterday.

We looked so young.

The weather was absolutely perfect.

I still blame the hubby for the Bentley breaking down … maybe in another 20 years he’ll blame me. 🙂

Here’s a toast to many more years together.

I hope we can still dance like this at our 50-year wedding anniversary. Wait, who am I kidding? We can’t dance like that now.

We’ve been through many life experiences – going back to school, job changes, buying a car and home, vacations, and of course most importantly – a beautiful baby girl. Happy anniversary hubby! Five years is just the beginning.

These photos were all taken by Parigo Studios. We were so happy to have them as our photographers. I only added my watermark because I don’t want anyone stealing the photos.

Photo of the Day: Reception Nightlife

Here’s an abstract photo from this weekend’s wedding. If I could change one thing, I’d zoom out just a little so the groom’s hand isn’t cut off. But there’s nothing I can do about it now! As you can see, the bride and groom, along with the other guests, had a great time at the reception!

Photo of the Day: Presenting a Wedding Extravaganza

Saturday night we had the pleasure of attending a friend’s wedding at the historic Granada Theater. I’ve seen some awesome photos of weddings at theaters, and my  husband and I actually looked at theater for our own reception venue, but this is the first time I’ve ever attended a wedding at a theater. It was great! We sat at tables for the both the wedding and the reception. No long span of time between the two, no leaving so they can change the set-up from wedding to reception, no distant drive between venues. It was a beautiful wedding and I wish the couple nothing but the best.

Day 231-233: Busy, As Usual

This is the only weekend out of seven weekends in a row that we actually stayed in town the entire time. You would think we’d want to relax, right? Well … not exactly. We always manage to find something to fill the time.

We passed these stools on an evening walk in Westport after dinner at Jerusalem Cafe. (Highly recommended!)
This little girl was part of the Parade of Nations during the Ethnic Enrichment Festival in KC. We had a lot of fun trying foods from different nations.
One of my best friends from high school is getting married next weekend in Portland, Oregon. I won't be able to attend the wedding, but luckily they had a small reception in Kansas City on Sunday.

Day 64: Off to a good start

Last summer I took Sarah and Bobby’s engagement photos, and yesterday we were honored to be a part of their wedding celebration. They had a beautiful ceremony and the reception was a blast – from the gorilla groom’s cake, to the awesome DJ, to the homemade pomegranate wine. Congratulations to the newlyweds – we know with your faith in Christ and your positive attitudes, love will endure all things.
