Winter has a special place in the hearts of these two. They met in those chilliest of months, started dating, and even said “I do” at that time of year. So it was only fitting that they toast to three years of marriage in the same season! Designed and styled by Chloe+Mint and with a gorgeous calligraphed champagne bottle courtesy of Seniman Calligraphy, these two kissed and sipped and smiled – and Tenth & Grace captured it all. Cheers to the romance of winter and many more years of love for these two!

From Tenth & Grace… Nicole and Austin celebrated their third wedding anniversary with a romantic anniversary shoot at the Sutro Baths in San Francisco. Designed by Chloe+Mint, the session featured a gorgeous winter-inspired bouquet by The Bloomery Co. and a personalized champagne bottle by Seniman Calligraphy. The wind and rain added to the romantic feel!
From Nicole… All of our major anniversaries fall within a one month period. We met, started officially dating, and got married in the winter months.
We kept our wedding very simple, and eloped on a secluded portion of the California coast. One of my very favorite parts of our day was feeling like a princess in the most beautiful dress, and getting to celebrate with my love. For our three year wedding/five years together anniversary, we wanted to have a shoot that felt a lot like the best parts of our wedding, so we could remember all our feelings so many years ago, and the commitment we made to each other. In that time, we’ve changed so much, but in a way, so much has stayed the same. This shoot was the perfect embodiment of that.
Tanya was able to bring the most romantic, elegant vision to life – one that even rivaled our wedding day. The vendors were unbelievable. I was spoiled with the most beautiful bouquet, a dress that was so delicate and perfect in every way, all wrapped up with the sweetest, personalized details, like champagne to toast our love on the rocky coast of the San Francisco Sutro Baths. It was like we were married all over again, I couldn’t have asked for a better anniversary.
