A Seaside Starry Night Glamping Anniversary

by Cortnie Fausner

First comes love, then comes marriage and you know the rest about the baby carriage. But what happens right after the wedding and honeymoon high is over? This shoot is a testament and an inspiration to keeping the romance alive between your wedding date and your budding career and family goals. The first wedding anniversary you will celebrate is a HUGE milestone and how many of us actually take this time to do something as special on our first anniversary as we did on our wedding day?! Why does this date not deserve special recognition?

Whelp friends, Kristin Polhemus of Reveriemade and photographer Michelle Lange decided to give you one heck of a wedding anniversary idea. They created the perfect post-wedding tribute, chock full of real life ideas that you too can implement. Yes, the tipi looks aspirational, but bell tents can be rented or purcahsed in most cities now. The table setting seems so magical, would you really re-create this for just the two of you? Our answer, absolutely yes. Do it! If you can create tablescapes for over 100 wedding guests, you can surely create a table for two in celebration of 365 days of marriage. 

Now get out there and find your little slice of heaven to swing your sun bleached hair in the salt kissed air. This little love fest will get your heart beating fast.. no, it’s not Channing Tatum doing pushups (hello heartthrob), but a serene seascape with starlit skylines and musical tides with your love will do just fine.

Meadowburn Farm

Meadowburn Road, Vernon Township, NJ, United States

This historical homestead is the perfect setting for your own storied soiree. Overflowing with blossoming blooms, fragrant florals and lush landscaping it all started back in the 1700's as a family estate, later purchased by two sisters and once-upon-a-time owned by a renowned gardner. Magical Meadowburn farm was even given as a wedding gift, you certainly don't hear of gifts like that nowadays. Is there anything more romantic than walking down the aisle on an estate that was once given as such a romantic gesture?! To sum it up, Meadowburn has certainly been enjoyed by many loving owners and is ready for you to add another chapter to it's history book.
