Happy 5 Year Wedding Anniversary to Us!

This Friday is mine and Brent's 5 year wedding anniversary! 

As a little ode to our milestone anniversary I thought I would share some of our wedding photos. Fun fact: I never got around to sharing our wedding photos on social media back in the day, so some of these are never before seen, even by our wedding party :)

We got married on May 4th, 2013 in Brent's grandparent's back yard on the bay in Florida. 

One of my biggest requests/visions was a baby grand piano, sitting the grass, with the view of the water beyond. 

I got my wish and to make it even more special my Aunt Janis who is an amazing pianist played one of my favorite songs - As The Deer. 

Brent designed our wedding "logo" that was on all print pieces. My Grandmother's broach was attached to my bouquet. She died a few months before the wedding so it was really special to have a piece of her with me. 

I love this picture of my Dad seeing me in my dress for the first time :)

Our wedding party! So many great friends all in one picture.

The Bride & Groom :)

Our families played a huge part in our wedding...

They came from near and far to be with us.

These two....always by my side. And the one on the right, my sister did my hair for my big day!

The Shearer boys looking so sharp!

Our wedding + reception was outside and it rained ALL day that Saturday. Around 2:00 p.m. the rain stopped and by show time the skies were clear and the sun was shining. It was crazy, but we were so thankful! 

That rain earlier in the day did give us a beautiful sunset. 

We dated for 5 years before getting engaged and I had visited this back yard many times. I always thought it would be a beautiful location for a wedding, but Brent was totally taken aback when I brought it up. To him, this location was his childhood playground with his cousins. 

But that Saturday it was transformed into a magical, elegant backdrop for one of the most memorable days of our lives and now Brent gets to have childhood memories + adult memories all in one place. 

After the wedding we danced on our black & white checkered dance floor, ate oysters, cut cake and danced some more......

Five years feels like such a big number and it's hard to believe we are here already! The years have flown by for sure and I love the life we have created, especially a certain 2 year old, blond little boy who would of looked SO cute dancing on that dance floor. Happy Anniversary to us!

All photos are my own.
