Matt and I returned home from our anniversary trip on Tuesday and are now trying to get back into the swing of things. We enjoyed two days in Carpinteria, got to enjoy a huge breakfast at the Fess Parker Doubletree Resort using our free breakfast coupon that was included in our wedding package, got to meet a wonderful bride who I had met through TheKnot.com who was getting married at the Biltmore on the 29th, got to stay at the Fess Parker for free using our points one night and then for half price the other night thanks to our wonderful catering manager, Chuck Henderson, at the Fess Parker and so much more! Our floral designer created a beautiful bouquet and bout for our shoot and our wedding baker even sent over a anniversary cake to thank us and thanking her. Isn't it funny how that works sometimes? :)
Our vacation was so relaxing and we are so beyond pleased with the pictures that we got from our Forever After/Trash the Dress session with Hazelnut Photography! Moria Taylor glammed me up! She is a joy to work with as is Jordana Hazel! I highly recommend both of them!! They were so fun and easy to be around! Jordana blogged a few of our pictures on the Hazelnut Photography blog and now we're waiting on the rest of them to be sent to us! Here are our two favorites so far...can't wait to see more!
For those of you getting married or who are newlyweds, I highly suggest doing a session like this. It was so much fun to get all dressed up again and to be able to take pictures in different locations that you wouldn't typically be able to shoot at on your wedding day. It was so nice not to have to worry about anything getting dirty or messed up too.
We had a wonderful first anniversary! I can't believe how fast this first year has gone by. I am so thankful to have such a loving and supportive husband! I'm already looking forward to our next vacation/adventure! :)
