We hope everyone had a great weekend! Today we’re thrilled to be celebrating the first anniversary of Carly and Chris, married at Holy Rosary church and the Mandarin Oriental last July. We recently touched base with them to see what they’ve been up to during their first year of marriage, and to inquire about some of their favorite moments from the day. Here’s what they had to say.

It has been an exciting year for us. After a wonderful honeymoon in Tahiti and New Zealand, we moved to Boston. I have finished my first year of business school and Chris is enjoying his new job. We both wish we were heading back on another honeymoon to Tahiti and New Zealand this weekend, but instead we will be celebrating our anniversary in Boston with some close friends. We are so happy to have such wonderful pictures to look back at our wedding celebration. 

Carly’s favorites:

I love this picture at the church and still remember having everyone looking at me and my Dad, but it was the first time I got to see Chris. It was one of the most memorable parts of our wedding day for me. I also like the way the sun is shining behind me and you can really only see our figures in the doorway. I also loved the church and how it was completely full with all of our guests.

[The] other picture is one of the best of Chris and he looks so happy in this picture. Since he hates having his picture taken, it was definitely great to see him smile.

Chris’s favorite:

Chris likes this picture so much because it was when the party was about to begin and we could celebrate with all of our family and friends.

Their joint favorites:

The solo picture of me is one of the favorites for me and many family and friends. I love the way it captures the dress, shoes, hair, the whole look. I remember how hot it was on our wedding day and am so glad we went inside for some portraits out of the sun, although it was definitely still shining into the room. This picture of me will be framed in my parents house for many years.

We both like the picture of me walking through the cocktail reception. It has always been one of our favorites and captures the relaxed atmosphere of the cocktail reception, but I look like a bride on a mission (not surprising!). I still have no idea where I was headed when this picture was taken.

We both love the night time pictures outside the Mandarin and this is one of our favorites. We are so happy that we left the reception for a few minutes to have a couple of minutes alone during the whole celebration. I love having a couple of night time shots with the Capitol in the background.

Thank you Anne and Bill for shooting our wedding and capturing so many great moments and memories for us. Hope to see you soon.

Thanks for sharing, you two, and enjoy your anniversary!
