What's Happening Wednesday- Our 1st Wedding Anniversary

Sunday December 6th is our 1st Wedding Anniversary!  I can hardly believe a year has passed us by already!  I thought I would share a glimpse into our special day and share our story with you.  

The holiday season is special time for me and Doug.  We met each other on Christmas day ( yes, really), rescued our black lab Ellie ( a gift from Doug ) the following December and got engaged under the tall, glistening tree in NYC the December after that!  So, it made just sense that we would have a winter wedding celebration!  We loved our wedding day so much!  It was an intimate gathering of our closest friends and family, a quintessential New England experience at the Bee and Thistle Inn.  

This coming weekend, we'll be reminiscing on all the fond memories as we celebrate our first year of marriage!  I'll be sure to share the what Doug has in store for us, it's all a BIG surprise!
