When I was looking back at our wedding photos, I noticed this one of Kane on the playground. It reminded me of one from our maternity photo shoot. This guy is always keeping things interesting and fun!
I wanted to do something a little different for our anniversary post this year.
I feel like I’m always posting the same five pictures from our wedding…which is crazy considering there are literally hundreds to choose from!
So today, I am going to post some that probably don’t look as fancy…but still have a special story behind them.
Right after giving my Mom a card and her gift.
I love this picture and these ladies so much! They are like sisters to me and Pam is my 2nd Mom so I think this picture is really special.
Some might wonder who exactly I was on the phone with hours before my wedding. It was my brother asking if he really needed to be there at the time we told him to show up. If you know my brother…this won’t surprise you at all.
I loved the back of my dress but it took about an hour and a half to lace up!
Not. Even. Kidding.
Kane sent over flowers and the most heartfelt letter I have ever read. He attached the movie ticket from our first date and one of those “silly bands” that I had given him when we first started dating. It just warmed my heart that he had kept both of them. I wrote more about our first date here if you are interested.
My mom was trying to be funny and pretending to be holding horse reins. The look on my face tells you how I was feeling about that.
(But apparently it was pretty funny because Kylie is laughing ha)
I love this picture because my Dad gave me the bracelet that I’m wearing on my right wrist. (Left when looking at this photo) I wore that thing for years without ever taking it off and I’m glad I left it on for my wedding.
I don’t wear it anymore because I’m afraid it will break while holding Grey…but I have it in a safe and special place.
I am such a Daddy’s girl and we have a really close relationship…so this was an emotional day for my Dad. I gave him a gift and wrote him a letter and these photos were taken right after. I am so glad this moment was captured and I will cherish these pictures of my parents forever.
I knew I wanted Kane to see me before walking down the aisle and our photographers set this up perfectly. They had Kane waiting with his back turned out on a bridge…one photographer was standing down the river a little ways and the other was up on a balcony. They got so many amazing shots of his first look and it was a really special moment for just the two of us.
I just think this looks like it’s from a movie…and it also makes these guys look a lot cooler than they actually are in real life.
I’ve always liked this photo of Kane and his Mom…but it means so much more to me now that I could be recreating this with my own son someday.
I had originally intended on taking a shot alongside my bridesmaids…but my nerves were so intense at this point that I just couldn’t stomach it!
Kane had the bright idea of doing tequila shots for our toast…and I had the bright idea to not participate in this shot either. I think I faked it pretty well though!!
I saw this idea on Pinterest and just knew I had to recreate it! Three generations…my Granny, my Mom and me.
A special moment during the Father-Daughter dance. We danced to a slow version of “Sweet Child O’ Mine”.
Kane’s Mom is a dance teacher so these two really tore it up out there!
I love this picture so much!! My parents and the couple that I consider my 2nd parents.
This picture is such a great example of how much fun everyone had. My Mom and Aunt Carol dancing the night away!
Cheers to three years, Kane Alexander!!
I love, love, love you!!
