Here's an idea for all you newlyweds....
When you get to old and wrinkly and you still have the love of your life holding your hand,
wouldn't it be great to have a photo of the two of you for each year of your life together?
You could watch your lives and love grow every year.
Curt and I celebrated our first year of marriage together last August.
The year just flew by!  It still feels like just the other day I was being serenaded by mariachi's as I met the love of my life at the end of an isle. 
So to commemorate our marriage day we decided to have a photo shoot every year with our most favorite photographer Cleary O'Farrell. Who took the most AMAZING photography of our wedding.
Your first anniversary is your "Paper" anniversary, so we thought that should be the theme of these photos!
Each year will have a correlating theme to the anniversary year!
It's going to be fun coming up with new ideas every year to fit the theme!

Here are a few photos of our first year PAPER anniversary!

We found this amazing little spot at the Washington State Arboretum right next to this gorgeous little pond covered in water lilies.  It was so pretty! 
We pulled the paper theme in with paper pom poms, hand made paper roses, the typewriter, a mailbox full of love notes, and of course the paper umbrella.

We also had little treats like lavender cupcakes, and Clementine soda with fun paper cocktail umbrellas!

And of coarse I had to whip out my fun little Brownie camera that I got form my friend Katy's wonderful store, The Classic Farmhouse
After all, our old photographs are paper too!

I look forward to looking back on these photos with my hubby when we are all wrinkly and gray..... and still in love.  :O)

Next year is Cotton! What would you do?
