Celebrating 3 Years

NewDarlings + ExpressToday is our three year wedding anniversary and we are so lucky to be celebrating in the beautiful city of San Francisco. When you have been with someone for almost twelve years, you might think these anniversaries lose their charm, but that could not be any more untrue. We still celebrate our dating anniversary, but our wedding will always be the most important day to us. It was 2013 and we were planning two of the biggest moments in our life at the same time. Our wedding day and our move from New York to Arizona were both making our heads spin quite a bit, but they are definitely the two best decisions we have ever made up to this point in our lives. It’s hard to explain the bond we have formed…we really are best friends. We have ups and downs just like everyone else, but through all the craziness life throws our way, we find a way to get through it all together and laugh in between it all.

We have been wanting to visit this city for quite some time now and are so glad we are finally here on our anniversary. We can’t wait to share all the fun places we’ve been visiting. We were lucky enough to meet up with our friend Vincent, who was also in town for a few days, playing tour guide, and who was kind enough to shoot some anniversary photos of us.

NewDarlings + ExpressWe headed to the Golden Gate Bridge around sunset the other day and the views were just breathtaking. A long flowy dress and crisp white shirt felt appropriate for the occasion. The Tech Fitted 1MX Shirt from Express has been the perfect go-t0 for dressier occasions.  Fitted dress shirts can be hard to find, but these have a bit of stretch which is always a plus when going for a tailored look. It’s great for casual wear with chinos and boat shoes or paired with some black slim fitting jeans and oxfords. This fun, floral dress felt like the perfect compliment to the white and black look and added a pop of color.

We’re looking forward to celebrating tonight over dinner and then seeing the city lit up for our last night here. Here’s to many, many more years of laughter, love, and adventure!

    You’re right, your floral dress looks great paired with his black and white, and the Golden Gate Bridge ties it all together perfectly!

    Happy Anniversary you two! I’m so glad I’ve been able to get a little glimpse at your lives together. When I was reading this, I kept thinking ‘Yep, I knew I liked these two.’ Cory & I have been together nearly 10 years (married for nearly 4) and feel EXACTLY the same you do about each other. I’m still surprised by how our love grows year after year…

      Thank you so much Jade. You two are such an inspiration as well! Love how you guys are best friends, as well as partners. Hope the four of us can have a double date one day. 🙂

    Hi,
    I recently stumbled upon your Instagram feed and fell completely in love. You two are so beautiful, on your own but especially together. Thanks for inspiring. Sending love from Canada. I would love to meet you guys one day. Also, are you planning on having babies? Because that would be way too much cuteness. This young mama can only hope.
    Mad love.
