Something Blue

Today is my 15th wedding anniversary! I love milestone celebrations and today feels like a pretty significant one! It brings back so many wonderful memories of planning our wedding and our wedding day, on the shores of our favorite place on earth, Lake Tahoe. It's fun to take a walk down memory lane and to share a few pictures with you.

I apologize for the poor picture quality - we were married before digital photography was widely used and I don't have digital versions of these pictures. I do, however, have an old-school photo album that these pictures are from! Enjoy.

One of my favorite things about planning any kind of event is, not surprisingly, choosing the color palette. My wedding colors were hydrangea blue and light chartreuse green. We also had "something blue" covered with the stunning blue color of Lake Tahoe and the sapphires in my wedding band.
I also love choosing printed invitations. We had ours letterpressed on an old press in Olympia and then I watercolored the hydrangea petals blue and the leaves green. I also hand calligraphed all of the envelopes. It was a labor of love, for sure!
For "something old," I wore my mom's 1960's Jackie O-inspired wedding dress!
And "something borrowed" was my matron-of-honor Megan's veil. I am still close with all of my attendants and it warms my heart that they are still in my life and were part of our special day.

Here we are this year, 15 years later! Our wedding site is in the background. So fun to revisit this beautiful place!

I'm looking forward to many more milestone celebrations with my best friend and the love of my life, Geoffrey Kyle Anderson!
