Happy 1st Wedding Anniversary!

Wow, where did the year go? It is very hard to believe that just 12 months ago (and 4 days) The Boss and I were tying the knot!0544

While this post is a little late, it is not because I forgot. Packing up the house, moving over seas, and trying to settle in all while battling a language barrier has proven more time consuming than one first thought. Great examples of such battles are trying to get the electricity turned on, hot water running, and all of the toilets to flush… in French!

Now I don’t want you to think I am belittling the fact that we are celebrating our 1st wedding anniversary by comparing it’s importance to a toilet flushing or electricity, I just want to make sure you don’t think I’m a bad wife who forgot to mention this important date. During this busy time we have reflected a lot on our first year of marriage, and having to temporarily  “camp” in our new home is just one more thing we have learned to laugh about together this year.

I promise to only post a picture montage of our wedding once every 5 years. Technically I didn’t’ do much of a wedding post after the wedding as I was preoccupied enjoying the honeymoon! It will be interesting in the years to come to see home much we have changed! I hope you enjoy my trip down memory lane!

The Preparations:

“The First Look”:

*Due to the our decision to have our beachside wedding in the early evening (mostly to save our guests from the blazing afternoon sun), we had to get our wedding photos done before the ceremony. At first I was very against seeing The Boss before the ceremony, but in the end I think it took the edge off of everyone! So, to make our first “meeting” a little more special for The Boss and I, the wedding coordinator and photographer allotted a little extra time in between preparations and family photos for us to see each other alone.

Then it was time to get going! It was “Formal Wedding Portrait” time!

Okay, so we had a little fun before the “formal pictures”. Below is the wedding party in it’s entirety, sans mustaches, and a good looking bunch I might add!0753

The Ceremony:

This is it, if The Boss had any second thoughts he’d have to make a break for it now!

Above is my sister and I “Shot Put” high-fiving. It’s a long standing inside joke that we have, and it was just what I needed before she was the last to leave for the aisle with the flower girls!08490870

Mission complete!

So that’s it. Another year come and gone in a flash!

Come back soon as I am hoping to be completely settled in Paris very soon, and I then I can wow you with some French inspired pastries!!

Happy anniversary! Cracking up at the photos, clearly you two had fun :) It was funny to pick parents out of the group photo, the height differences alone made that one easy!

I didn't realize you had a destination wedding?! I plan to do the same someday if/when I get married. Looks beautiful and I LOVE your dress! Happy belated anniversary!

Happy belated anniversary. You were a beautiful bride and Ray cleans up pretty well ;) Glad you're both handling the French adventure with good humor and hope settling in is going alright. Can't wait to hear all about everything Paris!

Happy Anniversary and Best Wishes settling into the new place and learning the language ;)

Your wedding was beautiful and looked like a lot of fun for everyone. You were a beautiful, no, stunning bridge. The photo of your husband kissing your cheek with your back to the camera...just gorgeous :)

Congratulations on your first wedding anniversary! You've had an elegant wedding that I know every girl wants to have. When we had our wedding at the Long Island wedding halls, everything went our way too specially the weather.

Don't goof this up, Ray.

This is such a great photo. I will show this to my wife. We are planning to have our wedding at country clubs long island . I am really liking the idea of the mustache for the brides maid and bride! My wife is such a goofy I know she will find this idea funny.

Xander Lawson said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

The moustache idea was hilarious. I wonder what our wedding photographer from enfield would've thought if we pulled that stunt off at our wedding.

One year and going strong I wish. Here are present ideas for women for the first year of living together. It makes for a blissful marriage.

Lauren Hixson said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I remember our wedding photography perth with your wedding photos. I love the mustache photo with your bridesmaid. It definitely tells how outgoing your circle of friends are. Happy first year to you and many more blissful years to come!

Since you guys put mustaches on the girls, you should've also tried having them in the suits and the guys in the dresses. Now that would've been a hit, even for our devon wedding photographer.

You have a very beautiful wedding venue. You have the option to wed in a yacht, by the seashore or that gazebo. In fact, that gazebo looks so great. The lighting is perfect and the backdrop of the sea provides the most romantic atmosphere. I remember a wedding I attended at wedding venues norfolk. It's nice that places like your wedding venue can be found all over the world. Congratulations & best wishes!

That crazy mustache stunt just got my crazy thinking going. I actually thought of how catchy it would be if my wife wore a fake mustache to go along with the dress she picked out from the wedding dress shops in wiltshire.

Jonathan Park said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

This reminded me of our own wacky and fun wedding at the country club long island. Although we didn't have any fake mustache, the goofy poses were noteworthy. Great couple, you guys!

Michelle Helena Cabrera said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Wow, you look really beautiful in your wedding. It's good to see someone who didn't have to wear too much bridal accessories and makeup on her wedding day. Happy 1st wedding anniversary!

Jean Raizel Gonzales said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Your photos remind me so much of my sister's wedding. She hired a wedding photographer from Perth and I loved every image he captured! Happy first anniversary and best wishes!

Vince Fury said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I've been doing bridal makeups for almost 5 years now. I have seen beautiful brides as well as gorgeous grooms. A happy wedding like this one is sure to last forever.

Derrick Patterson said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

My wife bought her wedding accessories in perth. On our wedding day, she was beautiful wearing all those accessories, I think of her like a princess on that day.

Wedding anniversaries are always the best days to reminisce the thingS that you did while preparing for the wedding. After doing extreme diet before rushing to long island bridal shops, creating the menu for the reception, and inviting all the people that you love, isn't it great to think that you're still together?

Fregard Mosform said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Congratulations on your first wedding anniversary. Those pictures are really beautiful, are the taken by a wedding photography perth company? By the way, your Formal Wedding Pictures are really funny, yes sir! They are really good. I'm sure all of your guest had the time of their life there.

Liberty Silvagni said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

As an artist in a videography perth studio, I could just imagine the wackiest scenes for the mustache pictures. Lovely wedding and couple! Congrats!

Cyrus Gilmore said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Your picture under the perth gazebo reminds me so much of the time I dressed up as a groom for a pictorial. It was quite embarrassing because I was the only one with no bride.

David Huffman said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Your wedding venue is breathtaking! I remember how wonderful it was to get married in the long island wedding halls with the amazing landscape of your wedding.

Justin Leo Rodriguez said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

The flower girls are very little, they remind me so much of my nieces during my cousin's wedding!

Beverly Baron said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

The serenity of this place fits a solemn wedding like the ones from the wedding venues in Mill Pond country club. Ideal for close friends and relatives only.

Dorothy Smith said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Wow, remembered my own wedding. All those emotions filled the wedding location and guests were as emotional as hubby and I. Checked your blog and saw that you're now starting a cupcake store in Paris, good for you! You may also want to create cakes for friends' weddings, that would be also great.

Such a nice sweet couple. I like the moustaches. And congratulations on the first wedding anniversary.
