One Year Anniversary celebrationCelebrating first year of marriage in wedding clothes :)Celebrating first year of marriage :)Celebrating first year of marriage :)One Year Anniversary traditionOne Year Anniversary tradition Celebrating first year of marriage :)Celebrating first year of marriage :)One Year Anniversary traditionCelebrating first year of marriage in wedding clothes :) On Saturday David and I celebrated our first year of marriage! We got back in our wedding clothes and ate the top of our cake that has been sitting in our freezer for a year and it was pretttty gross haha it was hilarious. It has been the best year ever.. It is crazy how as the days go on I see more and more how perfect he is for me and I couldn’t have chosen anyone better and I feel so lucky to be with him!

At the end of the day, David and his happiness is the only thing that matters to me.. I always knew that but being at Fashion Week this past September I had this really overwhelming feeling of just feeling claustrophobic from hearing everyone talk non stop about clothes and who she was wearing and how pretty so and so looked and how she had X amount of followers, and so on and so forth… and none of that is bad by any means, but since I was also missing my husband I just realized how much I need him and how little I need all the material things, success (of any form), money, etc.. I know all I post about are material things (since I do love all things fashion and beauty and love to share) and I think its good to have those hobbies as long as I always remember what really matters. And truly as long as I have David (and my pup!) I will be a-okay 🙂 So cheesy I know, but I know relationships are the best investments in life and I am so happy to be married to my best friend, it is the greatest feeling on the planet!

  1. :’) aw stop. You are too cute.
    1. The pictures are truly amazing and you guys are just radiating with happiness. It’s so nice to see that people after a year of marriage aren’t pulling their hair out, but celebrating, having fun, eating old cake (oh my god, how could you even keep it that long?! it’s crazy hahaha), and having such gorgeous photo shoots.

    2. It’s such breath of fresh air seeing a popular blogger who’s so down to Earth, and keeps in mind what’s really important. I bet that ‘fashion-week’ type of life must get exhausting, unless you’re always surrounded by best friends who are also in that type of world. Your writing was so sweet and sincere so you totally just gained extra brownie points with me! Not only are you drop dead gorgeous and have amazing style, but also a very sensible, normal girl.

    Even if this sounds weird from a total stranger, I really wish you and your husband the best, hopefully you’ll be as crazy about each other as you look in those pictures.
    Take care doll xxxx

  2. Hi, I do believe this is a great blog. I stumbledupon it 😉
    I may return once again since i have book-marked it.
    Money and freedom is the greatest way to change, may you
    be rich and continue to help other people.

  3. I know you are a fashion blogger, but as you stated material things mean diddly squat compared to those we love around us! I would love to see you wear and post an OLD outfit, something that you’ve worn before but changed it up. So it shows your readers you aren’t always about new new new clothes. Just a thought. You are perfect as you are already!

    1. C Mae!! I do try to re wear things but maybe I will do an entire outfit of things I have owned for years so you guys can see all old pieces 🙂 that is a very good idea! xx

  4. Love this post Amber! I couldn’t agree more. That feeling only gets stronger once you have little ones around too! All that material stuff is small potatoes compared to family:) Love you!

  5. Such a darling idea. You to are to cute. My mom always told me “material things, and friends come and go .but your family will always be here in the end. ” it’s so true . !! Always remember what’s really important. Just enjoy this time together. Because before you know it your 35 with 3 kiddos. It flys by believe me. Happy anniversary to the both of you .

  6. Amber– This post is absolutely so dang adorable and sweet! It really is so refreshing to hear you say what you did about what’s truly important at the end of the day. I also wanted to tell you that I follow a lot of fashion blogs and you truly stand out as a blogger. You *always* take the time to reach out and connect with your readers and respond to messages and comments and it’s so nice that you care so much to take the time to do that. Long time fan and plan to continue to be. Thanks for being as sweet as you are! xoxo

  7. Happy anniversary you gorgeous woman! I love you attitude about family vs. fashion week and I completely agree. The only thing NYFW makes me is super claustrophobic and a little well, emptier to be honest. Love this post! xoxo , Bethann

    1. Thanks Bethann!! And I agree, as exciting and amazing as fashion week is I learned I need it in small doses because I too sometimes leave with a weird empty feeling!! This next NYFW I am only going for a few days and that will be better I think! xx

  8. I love how sweet all these pictures are! Sooo amazing! You really feel and see the love you both have!
    xoxo

  9. I have to admit – after I saw your post about your wedding last year I actually called up Penelope and asked how much it would cost for me to get a replica of your dress for my wedding coming up this February. I almost flew out to Utah in order to get it made but after I tried on a few dresses I realized that the sheath doesn’t work with my body. That dress was made for you! Absolutely gorgeous. Amazing taste and congrats on your first year of marriage!

    1. Oh really?! Penelope is absolutely so talented it is ridiculous! But yeah the material of my dress is different, I think it works on me because I have bigger hips! Thanks I am glad you like it though! I hope you found the dress of your dreams and had or will have the best wedding! xo

  10. Happy anniversary ! These photos are so adorable 🙂
    & I’m glad that a fashion/beautyblogger ‘dares’ to say that the most important thing in life isn’t anything material but love is!
    Very happy for you 2, you can just see the happiness in your eyes 🙂 xx

    1. Thank you so much!!! And I love that you said ‘dare’ because I was honestly SO nervous if I should post this haha I didn’t want other bloggers to think I am putting anyone down but its just how I feel! You are so sweet!

    1. Thanks girl! And you TOTALLY will! And no rush to find the right guy either, single life is a blast as well 🙂

  11. Happy Anniversary! What makes me like your blog is that you have a loving family outside of all these material things. Congrats!

  12. Happy one year anniversary! I’m two months away from mine, so excited :). I loved the beautiful reflection – of course fashion and beauty are an awesome hobby and indulgence, that’s why we all follow your blog! But its so good to have things in perspective, and to know what really matters at the end of the end of the day. Knowing you are so down-to-earth makes it more of a pleasure to be one of your blog followers.

    1. Thank you so much!!! So fun that yours is just two months away! Did you guys freeze your cake?! I hope you have a fabulous anniversary and thanks for your sweet words! xx

      1. Lol no, we thought about it. But instead we took it away on our honeymoon and ate it for lunch everyday until it was gone :).

  13. Happy anniversary to you and your husband! What lovely pictures to look back on and I agree with some of the other commenters that you should wear your wedding clothes every anniversary. It’s a great idea. You’ve realized the gift and truth of marriage I think…to remember each other happiness is everything…hard to do in this busy world of ours! Best wishes for many many more anniversaries!

    1. I agree that is a good tradition to wear it every year!! I mean why not, you only got to wear it once! Thanks so much for all of your sweet words Kathi!! 🙂

  14. You two are so stinkin’ cute Amber! I love that you put on your wedding dress again for a fun little anniversary celebration! And it’s nice to read how grounded you are, which is hard to find. Husbands have a way of keeping us there, don’t they? Congratulations on your one year – with many more to come!

  17. I just found your blog a few days ago and love it, but understand when you have a good man by your side nothing else matters. It’s the love that will get you through anything and even better when you can celebrate life together. Here’s to many more years of wedded bliss.

    1. Glad you found it and glad to have a new follower! And it is so true what you said! Thanks for you sweet words! xx

    1. Thank you so much!! 🙂 And I am glad you feel the same, husbands are the best! xoxo

  19. Ohmygoshthecuteness!
    I am so happy that you two found each other in this crazy world. Sometimes, if someone can put a smile on your face and the warm-and-fuzzies in your soul, that’s all you really need. Happy first anniversary, and may you rock those outfits when you’re 90!

    1. Aw thank you Rosie!!! That is so sweet! And gosh I hope we are still rockin these same outfits when we are 90 🙂 xoxo

  20. Sooo cute! Ok, this just made my morning 🙂 Congrats on your 1-year! Cutest couple ever!! Xo

  21. I’ve never commented before but compelled to respond to this post because I just love it. You are your husband seem like such a lovely couple. I’ve been married for six months now and completely understand how you feel – life for us is so great and I am deliriously happy and at the end of the day the only thing that really fills my souls with gratitude and love is his goodnight kisses. I still look through our wedding photos every day and can’t wait to do a fun one year shoot like yours!

    1. Aw well thank you so much for commenting!! So fun that you have been married 6 months! Marriage is never easy but so so worth it and is the best thing! So glad to hear how happy you are that makes me so happy. You’ll have to let me know if you guys end up doing a shoot like this 🙂 I wanna see the pics ! xx

  22. SO cute – you guys are adorable and I’m so happy you married your best friend! Congrats on 1 year – and to many many more 🙂

    1. Thank you so much girl! It really can be hard with fashion blogging huh? The fashion industry is very vain its always best to stay a little distant! Thanks again! xx

    1. Thank you!! So fun that you have been married 4 years, marriage is the best and that makes me happy that you guys have such good relationship! xx

  23. K, this is SERIOUSLY the cutest thing ever! You and your husband are darling together, so you’re so right! I feel like I lucked out SO much in the husband department, and it’s easy to get caught up in all the materialistic things, especially when you’re a blogger! These are the cutest photos and I’m so jealous that you got this moment on camera! Happy Anniversary to you guys!!

    1. Aw thanks girl! And I agree it is hard when you are a blogger, totally had to learn to keep the two very separate! Thanks for your sweet words you are so darling! xx

  24. This is such a wonderful post, Amber! It is so good to hear how down-to-earth you are, and how important your relationships are to you. These photos are beautiful. You both look so happy and like you have so much fun together! Happy one year. To many more!

    1. Any excuse to put back on our wedding dresses right? haha 🙂 Thanks so much Brittney!! xx

  25. Happy Anniversary!!! I love how you worded this post. I think sometimes we all need to put aside brand names, the greed to have the best blog, best clothes, best anything and realize that the best thing in life are the people that make us happy!
