You guys are going to love this gorgeous, masculine anniversary shoot from an uber-talented team headed up by 36th Street Events. We love the pop of deep red in the florals by Davy Gray and the sophistication of the rich textures and modern typography in the stationery by Bird Walk Press. What we love most, though, is the beautiful sentiment behind these images captured by Ashley Bosnick Photography. Sean and Wyatt’s dating anniversary has always been important, because, up until a few years ago, a marriage was out of the question. The now married couple explains that for them their wedding anniversary and this shoot “captured our celebration for a new chapter that wasn’t totally new: a top-coat on an already solid foundation, reflection on two lives joined for decades, and a chance to enjoy our lives with our group of true friends and true family.” And isn’t that truly what this whole wedding thing is all about. Enjoy!
It all began on a rainy night, December 12th 1996 when we first met. Our dating anniversary has always been memorable because because it was the most important (a wedding was out of the question at that point). Over the years, we’ve had memorable and hilarious anniversary moments: on our 12th anniversary, we found ourselves at a chic Amsterdam McDonald’s since we arrived too late for a proper dinner.
After our small and quiet California wedding in 2014, we had a shiny new anniversary date suitably ready for celebration with our chosen friends and family. It’s more than a date on the calendar and ticker on the clock. It’s progress, precious aging, a reflection on growth, and appreciation of time.
For us, the photo shoot captured our celebration for a new chapter that wasn’t totally new: a top-coat on an already solid foundation, reflection on two lives joined for decades, and a chance to enjoy our lives with our group of true friends and true family. Walking in bluebonnets (who enjoy a springly anniversary in sync with ours) or running the grounds with our boy Barrett mean the penultimate in happy moments, fond reflection, and awesome new memories.
