Picnic Anniversary Shoot at Holman Ranch

I posted about our amazing anniversary weekend in Carmel Valley. I'm so excited to share a bit more about our anniversary and how we spent our actual anniversary day! 

Ian designed and printed this for me for Christmas. I LOVE IT.

Months before our anniversary I was trying to figure out the perfect thing to do for us. I decided a picnic at Holman Ranch (our wedding venue) would be an amazing place to spend our day. After a few calls, I had it all worked out. Holman Ranch was going to let us use the property, our caterings (Paradise Catering) were going to create a yummy lunch for us, and Tatum Brooke agreed to come shoot some anniversary photos for us. The hardest part? Keeping the whole thing a surprise for MONTHS!

Anywho, I'm pretty excited that we have some photos of us (where I am not in a wedding dress) and I am even more excited that we were able to share our anniversary at the same spot that we shared our wedding day just one year earlier. Seeing as it rained like crazy on our wedding day, it was nice that our follow up trip had gorgeous warm weather for us to enjoy. (PS weather gods, you're basically a YEAR late on the nice weather in April.)
