Images: Red October Photography
What a weekend Romancers. We visited with ALL the family, had an AMAZING family photoshoot with one of my favorite DC photographers, Maggie Gaudean (Winters) and then closed out our 2015 DIY Workshops with a bang. I’ll, of course, be sharing the shoot with Maggie soon – it was to celebrate Evie turning 6 months and Andy & I celebrating 5 years of marital bliss this upcoming weekend. I cannot WAIT to share the gorgeousness.
Now for today we’re starting the week with love (like we always do) but this time we have another lovely couple celebrating their 5 year anniversary too! I’ve been trying to get more couples to share their anniversary pictures and marriage advice, but it’s been tougher than you think. So when Red October Photography sent this one my way, I jumped at the chance. The images are pretty quintessential DC, but I love love love the marriage advice that the couple shared, so be sure to read on through. Happy Monday Romancers.
From the photographer:
We started off at the Lincoln Memorial, toasting to their 5 years and capturing it through photos. Then we moved to the Jefferson Memorial, where Kimberly put on her wedding dress, ran and twirled through the field, finishing the morning with spraying champagne everywhere as a “cheers” to many more years to come.
It was fun to think back to five years ago and all the memories of that day. The best thing about being married: is always having my best friend by my side to share life with, the good times and the bad.
The hardest thing to learn after getting married: To always forgive!
Any advice to couples that are getting married: Slow down to just enjoy each other! And don’t get too hung up on the wedding planning details; it is only one day!
Our biggest regret from our wedding day: Not doing first look photos. Every time I see some after I regret not doing them to this day. Such an intimate time on your wedding day. Wish we got to take that time for ourselves and have those moments captured on camera.
If we got married all over, we would have done nothing differently. We loved our venue, our vendors and we love each other!
