Columnist revisits wedding day, shares tips, ahead of one year anniversary

Sep. 17—Nearly 365 days ago, Andrew and I got married.

I've always loved the fall, but it has an even more special meaning now and I can feel the happy memories from last year flooding back to me.

As a fun way to commemorate our anniversary, I wanted to share some of my favorite wedding photos with you, as well as a sampling of some of my past blog posts centered on wedding planning. These range from my wedding day fragrance, bridal hair and makeup, reception design, what our bridal party wore and tips for engaged couples to consider when planning their weddings.
