A Paper Party

One year has come and gone since our wedding. It seems like just a little while ago we were getting things ready for the big day; working on the barn, making decorations, and running around to make sure everything would be just right for the celebration. It was an amazing wedding and an incredible first year. We traveled the country, moved in to our apartment in Cambridge, hosted lots of dinners, and started new jobs.

So it seemed only fitting that we would cap it off with a dinner to celebrate our anniversary. And of course, since the first anniversary is paper, we thought it appropriate to create the whole dinner around paper. We cut the food into paper thin slices, cooked it in paper, served it on paper storyboards, and covered our tables with paper so people could draw. We invited lots of friends, and almost all of them made it, so we packed ourselves tightly into the dining room to enjoy the feast! We are so thankful to have such an amazing bunch of people to start our new life with here in Boston. We dearly miss all of the other people we danced our hearts out with just one year ago, but we are so glad to have another family here. THANK YOU!
