Well, 10 years and 2 kids later, guess who got in that dress? And who kept his word and took intimate, romantic, incredibly fun anniversary pictures? You guessed it, friends:
Sure it's probably not as awesome as flying to Vegas and renewing our vows with an Elvis impersonator, but thanks to our amazingly talented cousin/friend/photographer, Elizabeth Burns, we were able make that promise a reality and so much more. Besides, there's always year 20 for that...
Another thing our Pastor said in our wedding ceremony that really hit home was when he gave us his advice of what he wanted us to do later in our marriage. One was to remember how we felt on that day. Another was to get out our photo albums and look at our wedding pictures, share them with our kids. Well, we decided to one-up that promise and actually share the emotions and excitement of our wedding with our girls. I found dresses similar to our flower girls' and brought the girls to help recreate some of our favorites. Even at this age, it was a lot of fun to share with them.
Lastly, we took a few extras with this adorable sign that my friend, Kristi, painted for us. Anyone that was at our wedding will probably notice that she even incorporated our wedding flowers!
And there you have it - Happily 10 years after.
