Fourth Wedding Anniversary!

Four years ago today, my husband and I were married!

First look

I thought it’d be fun to walk down memory lane and share some wedding pics. We’ve been together for 15 years but married for 4. My husband proposed in December 2012 when he thought the world would end and he wouldn’t have to go through with it (remember that? ha). Four years later, here we are! Cat parents and homeowners and we still like to hang out together every day.

Let’s get to it!

My ladies… We did the “choose your own dress” thing, and it worked out really well!

We had a loose concert/music festival theme (I shared the awesome Save the Dates my sister made for me a while back)

Favors (our cliche knows no bounds)

Cupcakes over cake (which if you know me, is not a surprise!): I’m pretty sure we had funfetti, red velvet, marble, and lemon with raspberry filling. The cake on top was red velvet. Everything was DELICIOUS.

We had this custom cake topper made, which pretty much sums up our relationship

Sparklers to finish off the night

Thanks for reminiscing with me! It was such a fun day/night… I kind of wish we could do it all again each year. The weather was perfect, and we had a great time celebrating with our friends and family. After the wedding, we were off to a week in Orlando–which I also wish I could do again each year 😉

Let me know in the comments if there’s anything you want to know more about! Happy first day of summer (no coincidence that we decided to get married on the longest day of the year)!

Local Love: Key Designs

Every now and then, I’ll feature a local business I admire. This post is not sponsored; it’s just me sharing something I truly love!

My sister is an extremely talented graphic designer, and she just relaunched her Etsy shop, Key Designs.

She has a number of beautiful invitations for weddings, showers, and more, and she also does custom designs! The best part is she sells the digital download, so it’s a really affordable way to get invites. She did all of the designs for my wedding (thanks sis!!), and I used Vistaprint to get everything printed. They have sales all of the time, so keep an eye out! We saved a lot of money that way (when you think about having to get save the dates, wedding invites, shower thank you cards, and wedding thank you cards, it really adds up!).

When I got married, we had a loose rock and roll/music festival theme, and I wanted our save the dates to showcase this. I thought it’d be fun to announce the wedding by channeling the classic concert posters of the seventies. I sent my sister some posters for inspiration, and she created the PERFECT save the dates for us, down to the cat detail.

Now that I’m looking back, I think I need to get this printed as an actual poster and hang it on the wall! She also created this cute chalkboard sign for the wedding shower, which I do in fact now have hanging in our bedroom.

You can see a sampling of her designs below, but make sure to check out her shop to view more! She’s super creative, so if you have a specific idea that’s not available, I know she’ll come up with something great.
