Brittany & Brian {First Anniversary Celebration}

“Hey, pretty girl, it feels so right
Just like it’s meant to be
All wrapped up in my arms so tight
Hey, pretty girl, it feels so right

Life’s a lonely, winding ride
Better have the right one by your side
Happiness don’t drag its feet
Time moves faster than anything”

{Hey Pretty Girl by Kip Moore}

On a perfectly mild August day in Kentucky, Brittany and Brian danced to those lyrics for the first time as husband and wife. A year has passed and since the line ‘time moves faster than anything’ is often a reality, these two love birds wanted to take a moment to celebrate the first milestone in their journey as Mr. & Mrs.

B & B love the outdoors, camping and fire so a beautiful wooded campsite at First Landing State Park was the ultimate setting.

I incorporated details from their wedding: Navy blue, light green, silver, and burlap. The framed ‘C’ was a wedding gift – LOVE IT!

Meet Hawkeye, their adorable fur-child and official stealer-of-the-show…which I totally didn’t mind since doggies are the bestest!

I’m pretty sure Hawkeye has a smile on his face.

We made our way from the campsite to the beach but first stopped to ‘play’ in the grassy dunes.

This is one of my favorites. These two definitely know how to have fun together!

Brittany carried calla lilies on her wedding day, which made them a must-have for her anniversary session!

And of course, more Hawkeye! He’s clearly a well-loved pooch.

The first annual ‘anniversary photograph.’ Brittany and Brian plan to take a picture every year that illustrates their current season of life. They are in the Hampton Roads, VA area because of Brittany’s college program. She’ll be finished before their second anniversary so next year’s picture will be completely different!

Time for fire and cake. It was so fun that B & B chose to save eating their wedding cake topper/first anniversary cake for our time together. (And according to Brittany, it was still good!)

In true campfire fashion, we ended the evening with s’mores. When I first pitched the ‘anniversary campfire with s’mores’ photo session idea to Brittany, she was especially excited about the s’mores. She even wanted to include them in their wedding day but it just didn’t work out. I’m so glad we were able to make it happen. There is definitely something magical about a marshmallow that’s been toasted over an open fire!

Congratulations Brittany & Brian! May the joy and love in your hearts continue to exponentially increase as you celebrate many more anniversaries together!
