celebrating an anniversary with a wedding


Yesterday was our ninth anniversary, a day that was just our normal Wednesday around these parts. We didn't go out because our big Night Out was celebrated last weekend at my friend's wedding. We had my parents and sister watching our three and off we went at the early hour of 2 p.m. To the people who know me best this was a huge deal that was sort of worrying me from the moment I received the invitation. A wedding. Over an hour a way. Starting at 3:30. No children allowed. I have not left Dom since this night way back in the end of February. He has not taken a bottle since, and while I left him quite accidentally one night for this very same friend's bachelorette party, I wasn't quite confident he would survive the night without me and my milk making capabilities. Spoiler alert: he was just fine and dandy and fell asleep as he would had me and my milk been right there with him. Deep sigh of relief.

But this wedding! It was at Linwood Estates. And good golly miss Molly was this event all her. She had all my favorite Pinterest wedding ideas all played out right before my eyes.... Choose a seat not a side... to have and to hold and in case you get cold with a shawl in a basket.... succulent favors... save your soles and baby pink flip flops... and the candles! I thought she was exaggerating when she said she needed thousands of white pumpkins but no. She was not. This girl has style and she looked beautiful, naturally. There was red wine of course, lots of that. And it was a nice break for Matt and I to get out and dress up just our twosies.

And I am as a rule always a sucker for cupcakes with oreo frosting.

Thanks for having us join you both on your special day Molly and Steve! Happy honeymooning!!

  4. iiii LOVE your dress!! you guys look fab and so does that wedding! happy anniversary to you! and we are the same person sometimes. i would've had my anxiety running the second i laid eyes on the invitation. but thank goodness babies have a habit of growing and i am so glad to hear that dom was just fine and happy while y'all had a much deserved night out!! it's so hard when they have those "mommy only" personalities, soooo hard.

  5. You look great, Laurie! And I suppose Matt, too. ;) I'm sure the pictures don't do it justice, but that wedding looks fancy pants! Love the decor and the fall theme. It's all lovely!

  6. You guys are so cute! This looks like an amazing wedding, how nice to have a night just the two of you :)
