a simple anniversary dinner

When Erin, a new friend in Reno who runs the cute site Barnbride, asked if I would snap a few photos on her anniversary I nervously said, “yes”. She went on to describe her vision of sitting down with her husband at sunset amidst the freshly fallen leaves, incorporating elements from the fall issue of Styled. magazine and serving a hearty spread of fresh, local food.

The whole evening was really pretty and sweet. They brought in wedding mementos like their library catalog guest book to read again and bouquets mimicking the pretty wedding flowers from a year ago. It was a special moment to be a part of and so much fun to practice my photo styling skills on such a lovely couple.

All photography done by me. See the menu design and download it free here.

PS. Erin is wearing her wedding dress that she had altered into a simple cocktail dress, brilliant right!?!
