Little White Dress and one-year anniversary pics!

As I mentioned last week, I made myself a very pretty little white dress (LWD!) of some really nice ivory lace, and wore it for our one-year anniversary pics taken by our wedding photographer Becky of Studio 623 Photography. Our belated one-year anniversary pics, really--our wedding was last August but we wanted to do pics in the new house! and it wasn't ready till end of August, and then we had to decorate, of course... so we did our pics in early October, and they show off our great achievements (house and one year!) both at the same time! Here are some of the pretties...

  1. Wonderful pictures! You both look really happy!

    Thanks for the idea as well! We will be moving to our terraced house (not sure about the right term.. it's 3 "houses" in a row) and we will then have about 2 months til our one year wedding anniversary in the beginning of February.

    So you can imagine I got butterflies in my stomach thinking about doing a photoshoot in our new home too! :)

  4. Those pictures are lovely. I love your hair, too. Is that your natural color or do you color it? If so, what color do you use?
