Ten years ago, Michelle put on her custom-made white dress, grabbed her Dad’s arm, walked down a grassy aisle as a backyard bride in her parents yard, and said “I do” as she started life with the peanut-butter-to-her-jelly, the macaroni-to-her-cheese, her best-friend-and-husband.
In case you’re curious, ten years is a very long time. Ten years ago, for example, Twitter was launching into the world wide web, Night in the Museum debuted, Donald Trump was hoping for a housing market crash, the Carolina Hurricanes came home with the Stanley Cup, Facebook opened to a the general public, and I was still using a flip phone.
Ten years and five kids later, Michelle wandered through her parents front yard to create The Best Surprise for her husband – a photo album of bridal portraits as an anniversary gift.
Playing dress up with her two daughters, dancing in the daisies, and relishing the ten years since her wedding day. A backyard bride once for her wedding a backyard bride again for her anniversary.
If you love Michelle’s headbands as much as I do, you can find them on Etsy.
I arranged the bouquet with flowers from She’s My Florist in Abbotsford.
