Surprise 1 Year Anniversary Date

Niagara Wedding Planner

Ashley and Zac celebrate their 1 Year Wedding Anniversary

A few months after Ashley and Zac got married, they asked me to plan them a surprise 1 year anniversary.  They lived in Miami at the time and were going to fly up to Niagara for the weekend to celebrate their anniversary here where they got married one year earlier.

I really enjoyed planning and designing their surprise date. I tried to bring in some of the aspects from their wedding day.  They were picked up from their hotel by a private car which brought them to Lundy Manor Wine Cellars.  Outside I had a lovely area set up with a boho vibe with rugs, cushions, candles and lanterns rented from Tufts and Toile.  I set up their vintage luggage which originally set up at their wedding and included the love letters that their guests had written for them on their wedding day.  After a lovely photoshoot with Daniel Ricci who also captured their wedding day, they started to read the love letters together.  Unfortunately, mother nature did not cooperate and it started to rain.  We moved inside and Ashley and Zac sat next to the beautiful fireplace within the winery.  They continued to read their love notes while enjoying a delicious charcuterie platter, private wine tasting and chocolates. Afterwards, their private car brought them back to their hotel where they got ready for dinner.

I set up a private dinner at Pillar and Post and had their meals and wine order prearranged.  Immediately upon arrival, wine was poured while they enjoyed live music by Frank from the Madhatters.  The Madhatters were the band that played at their wedding.  Frank serenaded Ashley and Zac with his acoustic guitar throughout dinner.  On each of their place settings, I placed blank cards in envelopes for their to write each other new love letters for them to open and read together on their 2nd Wedding Anniversary. Wishing you many, many more anniversaries to come.
