The Only Marriage Advice You’ll Need To Get Through The First Few Years

Tomorrow, John and I will be celebrating two years being married ❤ Hip hip hooray! I feel like these two years just flew by, mostly because we became pregnant 6 months into year one and spent the better half of year two adjusting to being a family of three. Through all we’ve experienced together since saying I Do, I can say that our love has grown deeper, our relationship stronger, and our hearts bigger. Even though it hasn’t all been roses, we’ve made huge efforts to create a strong foundation that will not waver through hard times. We definitely aren’t experts at marriage (I won’t take that title until we’ve passed the 20 year mark haha!), but we’re learning how to make it work better and better every day.

Styled Wedding Inspiration for the Modern Boho Bride

A month ago, we got to be a part of a super fun styled shoot at the La Jolla Women’s Club in La Jolla, CA. The funny thing was, that when we were asked to be the models for this shoot I was just telling John how much I loved our wedding day and how I wished we could have a chance to relive it – lucky for us, that wish came true! And was beautifully captured by Bree & Stephen Photography.

Our own wedding had a very bright, springtime, bohemian feel which was a lot different than the styled shoot we were a part of. It was a lot of fun to see myself in a different dress and theme than I chose for my own big day. This styled shoot was dripping in modern ethereal details with hints of blush, rose gold, and lush greenery. No detail was overlooked, as it should be on a bride’s perfect wedding day.

But, take your time drooling over these gorgeously styled photos along the way to pin inspiration for your own big day! 😉
