Our 1 year Anniversary

I can’t believe it’s been 1 year already since our wedding day! Keith and I have been celebrating our anniversary all month, so I thought I’d bring the celebrations to the blog too!

Keith and I said ‘I Do’ at Orchard Ridge Farm in Rockton, IL on September 9th, 2016. Complete with country views, Grandmas for flower girls, and a cotton candy cart, it truly was our best day ever! Check out some of my favorite photos of our day below.

And to my awesome husband – thanks for a great first year of marriage. You make even the mundane parts of life the absolute best ones, you accept me flaws and all, and you encourage me to dream big. I’m so happy doing life with you!
