1st Wedding Anniversary and Reflection

Today marks two important days: Memorial Day (thank you to all of our Vets including my brother Andrew!) and our 1-year wedding anniversary!! 🙂

365 days ago on May 26, 2013, Joe and I were in Maui surrounded by our closest family and friends and said “I do” along the waterfront on a gorgeous private estate. It was breathtaking and a day that I will never forget.

These past 365 days have been the best days of my life spending them alongside my best friend and soulmate.

Our wedding anniversary is so much more meaningful as I take time to reflect on all that has happened in the past 365 days. So much joy and so much love was shared by our family and friends on that day.

Here are some of my favorite pictures as I re-live that day. Photos were taken by the talented Jessica Akin of Anna Kim Photography. See the end of the blog post for a full list of the vendors that we secured for our wedding.

Hope you enjoyed viewing our special day! It couldn’t have been possible without our lovely wedding party, family, and friends. Thank you all for coming out to the wedding and celebrating with us.

Here are also the vendors that we hired during our wedding planning process. What made it nice was that we were able to visit Maui in January, four months before the wedding, to meet each of our vendors, taste the food and cake (so important), and more. I encourage you to consider doing a destination wedding. If you’re thinking Maui, let me know. I’m happy to provide tips.
