Sometimes simplicity is best, and this sweet one year anniversary shoot from Christine Doneé proves that. We are enamored with the natural details of Megan and Stephen’s little anniversary session with Christine, and we think it’s the perfect way to celebrate your first year of marriage if you’re looking for something special to do.
Megan, the bride, shared a little about their wedding day and their inspiration behind this shoot:
After months of planning a large wedding to be held in my husbands hometown in Northern Ireland, we decided to go a different route and instead had a tiny courthouse wedding in Scotland (where we were living at the time) surrounded by 9 of our close friends. A few months later we moved to my hometown in Los Angeles and had a slightly larger backyard wedding reception. I never got to wear the long flowing dress like I had wanted, so when Christine approached us coming up to our one year wedding anniversary, with a picture of a dress I would have loved to wear on our actual wedding day, I knew we had to make an anniversary shoot happen.

It's customary for Chinese couples to have their wedding photos taken in advance of the wedding, leaving them plenty of time on their wedding days to enjoy the company of their guests and really revel in their celebrations. Today's couple, Janes and Osson, decided to fall suit with this tradition, taking their elegant pre-wedding photos in California (their wedding recently took place in Hong Kong!).
BUY YOUR DRESS ON ONCE WED
While we're always fans of weddings filled with beautiful, unique ideas so that we can show them to you, we know that not every couple is concerned about the small touches or has the budget to be able to do everything they wish they could. On this rainy wedding day in Oregon, the aesthetic focus was on the couple's amazing style, a beautiful stationery suite, and a dainty bridal bouquet -- and it's perfectly fine to leave it at that.
