One Year Ago

One year ago today we were married surrounded by our closest friends and family. Today is another milestone in our long history together. You see we met 12 years ago, yesterday marked our 7 year dating anniversary, and 3 years ago we got engaged. We have the same motto about our relationship as we do about our remodeling…”Take it slow and do it right.”

I hope you don’t mind if I reminisce a little about our wedding…

There was something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.

There were fox cuff links and a collapsible top hat.

There were DIY flowers.

There were pictures everywhere.

There was a glass fox and the hound cake topper (our nicknames for each other).

There was an antique chair brought 90 miles for a photo prop.

There was a secret first dance routine.

There were surprise family slide shows for the father daughter and mother son dances.

There were tears shed.

There were laughs shared.

I can’t believe it’s already been a year. I remember it like it was yesterday.

Happy Anniversary Honey!
Your Fox

    Sigh, such beautiful pictures. Happy anniversary! And here is to many more. I had no idea this date was SO significant and special for you two. That’s awesome!

    Thanks everyone I really appreciate the well wishes! We had to cancel our plans to go out to eat because I’ve been so sick lately. At least we can still reminisce.

    Tina, I left out the traditional wedding party and family pictures because I was trying to keep the post short. You know it could easily get out of hand with all of our great shots and my love for pictures. : )

    Tashamort, I actually didn’t know our dating anniversary until right before the wedding last year when I was trying to create the dated table numbers. We always remembered when we started dating around a shooting match (’cause we’re not the type of people to celebrate things like that) but I looked up some old calendars and found out that it was in fact 6/29. We had randomly picked our wedding date it was just a coincidence that we got married right around the same time.
