It’s SO exciting that you’re hitting this incredible milestone ā€“ one year since your best day ever! As I wish for all of my incredible wedding couples, I hope your first year of marriage has been a dream. Here are a few fun ideas for how to celebrate your one-year wedding anniversary!

Revisit your wedding venue!

Do they offer dining? Make a reservation and dine in at the place where you said ā€œI do!ā€ If they don’t offer dining, maybe they’ll allow you to come onto the property for a picnic. You can even try recreating a meal you had from your wedding day or ordering a similar meal from a caterer to bring in! šŸ™‚ Don’t forget your signature drinks!

If you had a destination wedding weekend, you can always plan a fun getaway to revisit the town you celebrated in a year prior!

Revisit where you took your engagement session photos!

Remember how exciting those months of being engaged were? Reminisce by revisiting the place you took your photos and take a stroll around. Maybe even wear your same engagement session outfits for the memories.

Look through your wedding gallery or wedding album!

This is a given, right?! You have so many beautiful photos that may still be sitting in your online gallery/on your computer. Ideally, they’re printed in a gorgeous heirloom wedding album. If not, this would be a great time to go through your gallery and pick your favorites to create a tangible album to honor your day.

Watch your wedding video if you had a videographer!

This is such a fun one ā€“ pop on the highlight film or full documentary film to relive all the special moments of your day. Nothing beats rewatching your vows, hearing the toasts, or seeing your loved ones dancing!

Play your first dance song and dance together!

This one is quick and easy. Pop that song on and get in your feels. If you had a choreographed dance, try to remember it and run through it together!

Plan an anniversary session!

Whether you want to celebrate your anniversary by doing a session together or planning it around the time of your anniversary, it would be so special to get you two in front of the camera again! You can schedule the shoot a little before your anniversary day so you have photos to share on your one year, or you can plan it on/around your anniversary as a fun date night and way to celebrate!

Eat your wedding cake!

You can even bring your cake to your anniversary session! Bonus points if you get dressed back up in your wedding attire just for fun and then eat cake! šŸ™‚ If you didn’t get to keep the top of your cake, you can always bake the same flavor cake together as a fun date night. That’s what I did for our anniversary ā€“ vegan vanilla lemon raspberry cake!

Iā€™m so excited to hear how you celebrate your one-year wedding anniversary!! I’m sure it’s feeling wild how fast time flies! Wishing you the happiest anniversary ever and the most beautiful marriage.
