A few weeks back, my siblings and I decided to host a 45th anniversary scavenger hunt for our lovely parents! We are always looking for new ideas when it comes to celebrating their anniversary because after 45 years our ideas can get to be a bit of the same old, same old. So, to change that up we decided to host an all day event that ended with dinner and a viewing party!
Welcome to the sixth post in the wedding week series here on West 5th! We’ve been covering everything from our ceremony to the reception and last week we talked details. This week is all about our favorite moments from the big day and I can’t wait to share those with you. Visit here to get caught up on our past posts.
I don’t know what it is about September, but I find I’m always encouraged to change up certain aspects of my life and start fresh with a new season.

I’ll take a shot in the dark here at a phrase you may have heard throughout wedding planning: “It’s all about the guests.” I know that’s something I heard a lot and at first I was taken aback with the thought the our wedding day would be about the people attending more than it was about the two of us.
