One Year Anniversary || Anniversary Photo-Shoot || Fort Rodd Hill

July 22, 2011

Amazing at how fast a year goes by!  This weekend, my husband & I will be celebrating our first wedding anniversary!   We made it!!  Everyone told us the first year is the toughest…

My brother gave a speech at our wedding, ending with ‘Cheers to Sharon & Kal – 24/7’, as we got married on the 24th of July, well the year was just that, 24/7 of each other, of-course in a good way, the best part of being married!

We did a ‘One Year Anniversary Shoot‘ with the fabulous Jesse Holland, from Jesse Holland Photography,  at Fort Rodd Hill in Victoria, BC.  We wore our wedding outfits, which still fit us, Kal’s was loose, mine took a little more work zipping up, I did the good old, ‘jump and zip’, a few times.  Which brings me to my least favorite part of being married, gaining weight!  We eat the same, which means his portions are smaller, and mine are bigger, hence, his outfit being loose, and mine barely zipping up!  Oh.. the joys of being married!

As I work with brides, I get inspired, with new ideas, new looks, which makes me want to get married all over again (to the same guy of-course), I love everything about weddings! Outfits, jewelry, makeup, hair, photo-shoots, friends, family, gatherings, and dancing….

Happy Anniversary, Mr. Dlay, here is too many many more!
Stay tuned to the blog, as I will be blogging about our wedding, soon!
