first anniversary party

Tuesday, February 2, 2010
welcome back to the party! More fun photos from our shoot with Jill Thomas Photography! Here is part two...and more reason to celebrate.

inspiration:
this is a vintage inspired shoot. using an old bridal magazine, vintage attire, record player, and even a couple vintage chairs. but we wanted a vintage inspired shoot with an element of beauty and elegance




theme:
we wanted to create a nostalgic feeling, that was reminiscent of each couples wedding day. we also wanted to honor traditions and to remember the moments that began their life together. we imagined our couples beginning a new tradition on their first anniversary and gathering friends together to celebrate.

the couples each re-created photos that reminded them of their actual wedding day.
Micah and Tracy: remembering their rainy Seattle wedding day

Ben and Paige: remembering their destination wedding
Megan and Evan: remembering their rustic ranch style wedding



using a record player, each couple danced to their first song that they danced to on their wedding day. This is one of my personal favorite anniversary traditions. I still love dancing with my husband with each passing year on our special day. It always makes my heart beat a little faster.
