As you might remember, Andy & I celebrated our 5-year wedding anniversary a few weeks ago. It was sort of an emotional weekend with the Paris attacks unfolding all day Friday (our actual Anniversary), I had a hard time getting into the loving spirit. But then Saturday my parents came to watch Evie and Andy planned such an amazing day to celebrate our 5 years together.

In the morning we got up and got dressed (sort of, Andy gave me NO guidance on what to wear – I didn’t even have makeup on!!) and he drove us out towards Logan Circle. I had no idea what was going on. We passed some of the places I thought we were going, until we finally parked on a street near the church we got married at. I thought, hmmm maybe our family is waiting there for us. Then as we walked over, there were envelopes tied to bushes & branches, leading down the block to the church. Each envelope had a number and a year on it. Andy read each one, highlighting the things we did together during our first, second, third, fourth, and now fifth year of marriage together.

As we turned the corner to the church, to my utter shock (picture evidence here), our dear friends Maggie & Steven were waiting to give us a surprise pop-up vow renewal, on the very steps of the church we said our original vows 5 years previous.

^Pretending we just got married.

Then we headed down to the Decatur House (where our wedding reception was) to enjoy some DELICIOUS cupcakes from Grassroots Gourmet & take a few more fun pictures there.
