You guys. Have you ever had a dream come true? Big or small...it felt amazing right? Ever since the cartoon movie first came out, I was obsessed with Anastasia! We had so much in common and the story was so romantic...finding true love both with long lost family and a handsome man. Ooo la la!
"Together in Paris."
When I fell in love with photography, I dreamed of capturing the romance of Paris for a sweet couple in love. And on our most recent trip, I finally got the opportunity!!! AHHH!! Jonah and Ashley were celebrating their two year wedding anniversary in Paris and the stars aligned. We actually met on Instagram through our favorite shop - Morning Lavender! They were so generous to supply Ashley's GORGEOUS outfit!!! Tulle, blush, and bows...it doesn't get any more magical! <3
We met on the Trocadéro at sunrise. The sky was still dark and we were the first ones there. As the sun began to peek over the horizon, Ashley and Jonah shared some of the most romantic moments together with the Eiffel Tower looking on from the distance. As the city came alive before our eyes, Ashley and Jonah twirled and danced and kissed and held each other close.
"The past two years of marriage have been filled with love, laughter, tears, countless hours on the couch, playing games, cooking together, learning new things, exploring new places, and making new friends.
All of these moments are my favorite because they are spent with you.
Life is better with your best friend by your side.
Happy Anniversary Jonah Michael."
From the Eiffel Tower, we went on to explore the Tuileries Gardens, the Louvre courtyard, and the Palais Royal. These were some of my favorite spots from our first visit to Paris, and I couldn't wait to introduce Jonah & Ashley to the beauty!!
How cute is this rose gold Eiffel Tower ring?!
I'm going to let you in on a secret. I made this bouquet!!! It was like Super Market Sweep in that adorable little Parisian flower shop (hollaaa Wax Flowers!). I just kept picking until my arms were full and my eyes were happy. Thankfully I had attended Kerry Patel's Pop Up Floral Shop at Anthropologie a few months prior, so it was actually pretty easy to whip this beauty together!
Happy Anniversary Ashley & Jonah! May you keep twirling for all your years! <3
