This spring, I photographed Rebecca and Dan’s cherry blossom anniversary session at Branch Brook Park, in Belleville, NJ. And today is the day that marks the third year of marriage for this amazing couple! Between Rebecca’s dreamy Adrianna Papell dress, the gorgeous florals by Bouquets and Baskets, and the adorable cupcakes, this session was incredible! I love Rebecca’s creativity and the way she brought all the elements of this shoot together was breathtaking!
Shooting with Rebecca and Dan feels like spending time with old friends. I had so much fun talking, laughing, and creating with them. They are seriously two of the sweetest, big-hearted people I’ve met, and are so inspiring. I loved celebrating their love, marriage, and anniversary with them!
I asked Rebecca if she had any advice to share for newlyweds and married couples in general. Her sweet words were so touching and poignant. “Try and treasure all the moments you have with your loved one. Life can go by so fast but just remember it’s great just to stop for a moment and appreciate what you have. I know for me I thank God for all the great things he has given me including my husband, our health and a roof over our heads. I would also say never stop dreaming! For us this year (actually today) thanks be to God, we have just paid off the last of our school debts and loans!! We are so happy words can’t express it and the reason I mention it is that it has been our dream the past few years. We are now dreaming of what the future holds in store of us and its wide open! It’s wonderful to have a goal together and to see it come true is even more beautiful.”
Happy Anniversary Rebecca and Dan!! Here’s to many more years of love, laughter, and reaching goals together! <3
