One hand in the air for the big city. Street lights, big dreams all looking all pretty. No place in the world that can compare, put your lighters in the air lemme hear you say yea-eeeeaaah yeaaaah…etc.

Any guesses where I am right now?

Zee and I are mixing business with pleasure on a short trip to the big apple and we’ve had such fun exploring the city so far! (FYI Brunch at Penelope is amazing.)

Anyway enough about me, you’re here for the pretty right?

Chelsea and Russel celebrated their first year of marriage with a styled photoshoot from Rachel Brenke Photography. It was inspired in part by the movie ‘Up’ with a quaint paneled house, picnic for two and a bunch of balloons. Chelsea’s colourful, heart patterned, retro dress was custom made by a local seamstress and it’s beyond gorgeous. Just check out the pink sash. While Russel wears a matching bow tie!

This sweet, loved up pair look like they’re having a blast…who says the fun photo opportunities have to stop after your wedding?!

Happy Anniversary Chelsea and Russel!

Thanks to Rachel of Rachel Brenke Photography for sharing these oh so lovely photos and brightening up our Monday.

Ps. This photo shoot inspired me to watch the beautiful and bittersweet ‘married life’ montage from Up. Watch it, have a little sniffle then look forward to all the good times ahead (and be sure to follow those dreams of yours before it’s too late!)
