Our Wedding | Two Year Anniversary

Today is our anniversary - how can two years have already gone by?! To celebrate and reminisce, Brian and I planned a day trip to the establishments that were a part of our big day. We started at the Tucker House in Raleigh that was the site for our reception. Brian had called ahead and we got to sneak in on the tail end of a bride to be's informational appointment. It was so fun to poke around and be in that house again. I still love it just as much as the day we got married.

Next on the agenda was Side Street Cafe, just down the street (no pun intended). Y'all, if you want some good 'ol Southern food, this is the place to go. The owner, Mary Lou, is the epitome of a Southern woman and you will definitely be bathed in Southern hospitality once you walk through the charming white paneled door. It is a little hole in the wall, which is my kind of place.

Last stop was a walk through the Raleigh Little Theater Rose Garden. A wedding limo was just driving off as we got to the entrance. How fitting! The roses were on their last legs after the first bloom of the season, but were still absolutely gorgeous. If you are in the area, this is a romantic spot worth checking out.

We capped off the evening by opening up a bottle of the wine we served at our wedding (a Trader Joe's find). The weather was perfect for sitting on the front porch rocking chairs with our fur baby, Lola.

All in all, it was a pretty great way to celebrate our anniversary. Do you have any special traditions for your anniversary?
