two years.

If you've been following my blog for any length of time, you may have already seen this little clip, but I hope you'll indulge me in sharing it again...especially since today marks our second wedding anniversary!


Two years after Kate Headley {our photographer extraordinaire} shot this 8mm, I still find little parts which make me laugh/smile/cry--even after seeing it more times than I can count. The awkward still shot above? From the good ten minutes spent trying to figure out the buttons on my dress. The girls in the window? Those are two of my bridesmaids, spying on the first look {cv} and I had before the ceremony. The blue drinks? They were glasses of blue cotton-candy topped champagne before we discovered they turned our guests' teeth extremely blue. I could go on and on...but I'll spare you.

My favorite moment of the whole film occurs at 1:51--when {cv} does a little clap clap walking down the aisle. I didn't see it that day, but I am so glad I now have this moment etched in my mind for a lifetime. Here's to celebrating more of life's special moments with clap claps--and each other :) I love you, {cv}!


psst: we were honored to appear in Martha Stewart Weddings and Southern Living, so if you want to see more of our wedding--you can check them out there. {It has also been pretty surreal to happen on our wedding images on pinterest!} Endless love and thanks to our vendors friends: Kate Headley, Maria + Kelly at Ritzy Bee, Holly Chapple, Paper Moss, Design Cuisine, and the staff at Dumbarton House. Surround yourself with a fantastic team--and you'll have a dream wedding day like we did :) xo

  5. The priest for our ceremony knew my husband growing up and kept cracking jokes the entire times, and he also admitted that he forgot some parts that he was supposed to say during specific times in the ceremony so he fit them elsewhere. Since my hubby is in the military it is traditional at any military friend wedding, everyone stands in a large circle and we sing "God Bless the USA" :)

    PS - Happy Anniversary!

  8. Happy 2nd! It's amazing how time flies, isn't it? My internet is super slow, so I'm still loading your video to watch. And I can't wait to click on the links to the magazines and check you guys out! What a fun and special time that has been shared with so many people.

  9. This is beautiful! I would have loved a little video like this :) And it's great that it was able to capture some little things that you missed that day. After all, that day just flies by! One funny little thing I found was when my pictures came in, I found a picture where the photographer had asked the groomsmen to "cry" as I showed up. It's a hilarious shot and it's definitely one of my favourites :)
    Hope you have a great 2nd anniversary lady!

  15. happy anniversary! I hadn't looked it at your wedding before, so I definitely just stalked you on both of those websites. I understand why your photos are being repinned on Pinterest! there are so many unique little details and touches to your wedding that I don't think I ever could have come up with! like the vintage postcards as your response cards??? such a clever idea! I might steal it whenever I get married. :)

  18. We got married in Mexico on the beach. I had just walked down the aisle, so nervous, I'm not sure why. We had been together for 6 years already. The officiant began speaking and informed us that because we were in Mexico the ceremony had to be performed in Spanish! Neither of us speak Spanish and even though there was a translator. I'm not 100% sure what I said yes too!

  23. Oh my gosh, Lani's comment is hilarious!

    That song is so sweet, and the video is even sweeter. You are absolutely beautiful.

    My wedding day actually always makes me think of my husband (almost a year earlier) the first day we ran into each other after we had been separated for 3 years. I was visiting home and was with my sister walking her dog on the college campus, and my husband had transferred back to school there from Dallas. He was in the back of the triathlon class, and when he ran by, he said, "Hello...ladies...?" Still makes me laugh when I think about it, and he has made me laugh every single day ever since.

    Happy anniversary!!

  24. Happy Anniversary!! This video is AMAZING. You look STUNNING and it's so cute to see {cv} all nervous before your first look. Your veil is simply gorgeous too! So many sweet moments here I can't even list them all! And you had some rocking vendors! I'm friends with the ladies at Paper Moss and they do some amazing work!!

    My funny wedding memory? We took communion at our ceremony, and supplied our venue with a loaf of bread for the occasion. Normally we'd eat a chunk of the bread as is, but they decided to butter it and garlic it! We were quite surprised to find it in that state when that time came in our ceremony. Our shocked faces made for some funny photos... even if our breath was a bit smelly :)

  33. loved that video the first time i watched it, and loved it again today when i watched at my desk ;) so precious. happy anniversary to you and your man! hope you do something fun to celebrate tonight ;)

    and umm.. my funny moment from my wedding would certainly be almost passing out at the alter. the combination of a skin tight dress, 90 degree heat, and a glass (or two) of champagne before the ceremony almost did me in! Luckily I stayed on two feet long enough to say 'i do' ;)

    XOXO

  37. Happy anniversary! What a lovely wedding & memories. My favorite little memory from our ceremony is we accidentally kissed too early - and then again at the appropriate time - but people thought it was sweet, so it wasn't too embarrassing of a mixup :)
