One Year Anniversary Planning.

This April will mark 7 months of being married to my soul mate. 
7 months already!?!
It is so crazy to me how quickly being married has gone by but my goodness it has been the best 7 months of all our six years together :)
All I have been thinking about for the past month is our anniversary trip for this September. We are planning one week of nothing but relaxing at the beach. One week with no work, no emails, no phone calls...just focusing on each other. Paradise!
BUT a few days ago I had this brilliant idea. 
10 points for Lauren!
Just kidding, 20 points for Pinterest. 
We will be at the beach on the actual date of our anniversary so what a better way to spend it than an anniversary shoot??
I will put on my wedding dress, he will put on his casual wedding wear and we will have one beautiful photo shoot! I am so excited I cant even stand it. These are the photos that I am really looking to get 
 The photographer (we will hopefully be going with) emailed me about also including a "trash the dress" shoot towards the end. Apparently its a big thing for a one year anniversary shoot. 
How could I turn that down?
So there will be a lot of dancing and water involved :)
And I cant forget about what in the world I plan to do with my hair. Something with volume and a relaxed but pretty curl like Ms. LC and Heidi (and that flirt advice though)
Decisions, decisions

I just want a fat pile of nothing but romantic, fun, good hair photos with a lot of cuddles and dancing. 
I am pretty sure I am the cheesiest romantic around but I simply cant help myself 

xoxo
Lauren

  1. Congratulations on 7 months! Time does certainly fly when you're having fun.
    What a great idea Lauren, I mean Pinterest! ;) this is too cute. So is your photographer from your hometown going with you on vacation? Or did you find a photographer in the town your going to be vacationing?
    And your hair is so long and cute...those half up styles will look amazing on you.

    1. You are always so sweet :) Thank you so much! Time certainly does fly when having fun! Actually I just googled some photographers in the Destin area and found three wonderful photographers! The only downside to beach photographers....they are NOT cheap but I think it will be something I will be so proud of so I have to start saving up! haha. I LOVE half up styles so hopefully I can find a hair lady down there who can do something with my hair for a good price!

  3. I love the idea of an anniversary shoot in your wedding dress on your 1 year anniversary. We had a quick courthouse wedding, so I just have a white sundress that I wore for ours ((and nothing all that cute...try finding white dresses in October!)). I have some sweet plans for it though, since a trash the dress wouldn't be all that fun in it ;)

    And love the hairstyles, too!!

    1. Girl, we had a mega small wedding too. We almost went the courthouse but we decided to do it in a little tiny church last minute. I know how hard it is to find a dress in October!! I had never really thought of the whole trash the dress thing but I have been loving it since the photographer mentioned it. Let me know when you get ready for your photoshoot! :)

  4. We have a photo shoot every year just after our anniversary with our wedding photographer. It is so much fun to see how we change and how much more comfortable we are with one another as time goes by. The best part: Jason loves it all just as much as I do!

    1. Amber that is such a great idea! So sweet and I love photos to look back on throughout the years. Imagine looking back on your 50th anniversary :) I will definitely have to copy this idea from you!

  6. What a fun idea! We didn't like our wedding photos and ended up having a shoot in our wedding day attire a few months after we got married. Can't wait to see your photos!

  7. This is something that I really want to do as well, an anniversary shoot in our wedding attire, but much more relaxed! I can't wait to see how your photos turn out : )
