Welcome back! If you’re just visiting for the first time, this is a blog post dedicated to the little family Matt and I have created over the past 5 years. For our wedding anniversary I enlisted the help of our amazing wedding photographers to take family photos for us. These photos are all of Matt and myself. They are so stunning, I can’t stop staring at them! Hope you guys love them as much as we did!
Also worth mentioning, my mom and I hand made this teepee ourselves, ha! Someone had commented and asked if we purchased this teepee from a store so I am very proud to say we went all DIY cray on this thing! We purchased a few large wooden stakes from Home Depot, a few yards of white fabric from Joanne Fabrics, a little lace trim and threw it all together in one night in my parent’s back yard. I purchased the sun flowers while all of the other flowers came from my yard (and my neighbor’s… shhhh, don’t tell! haha). My mother-in-law was so cute when looking at these pictures, she was like… “what made you choose….. a teepee..…in the middle of the woods?” LOL! To be honest, we got married on the beach so I just wanted a complete change of scenery for this session, and our girls looked so damn adorable in those boho flower crowns frolicking in the wide open field.
My veil was actually packed with my wedding shoes, so it was totally unintentional that it ended up at the shoot. Honestly I thought I had lost it. Nino had the idea to drape it over me to get a few photos and they came out so beautiful! It was a great way to incorporate a few key items from our wedding 5 years later (Charlotte wearing my wedding shoes as well). I wanted to send a special thank you to Lulu’s for sending me this beautiful dress! It was everything I wanted and more!
