THROWBACK THURSDAY: OUR ELOPEMENT

Yesterday, Jon and I celebrated our 3 year wedding anniversary.  If you're married, engaged, or even have a Pinterest wedding board, you know how expensive a wedding can be.  That's why we decided to skip it.  We had a private ceremony with awesome photographers, went on an amazing Hawaiian honeymoon, and a few months later held a pretty great party that we could invite everyone we wanted to.

On the day of our wedding, we got dressed and drove together in the rain to Newman Band Stand in Audubon Park in New Orleans.


Jamie and Heather Schneider, the owners of Dark Roux Photography, not only took fantastic photos, but they were also our witnesses on our marriage license, and even brought their iPod so we could have our first dance!





After our ceremony, we headed over to Sucre on Magazine Street.  Chef Tariq was so gracious and insisted on treating us to wedding cake and champagne on the house.  Our picture is still on their website!


Now flash forward to today...



This year we celebrated our anniversary with Thai take-out and a movie and couldn't be happier.
