Our Anniversary Picture
Update 10/31/2012: Hi y’all! If you are visiting this post via Pinterest, welcome! I originally got the idea for this anniversary photo from a picture that I saw on Pinterest back in 2011. It was uploaded to the Pinterest site from an original user; however, in checking on the link, the photo is no longer available. As such, I am removing the photo from my blog as well, as I do not want people linking to that particular photo from my blog if the original user decided to delete her photo. I do not want to take credit for an idea that wasn’t mine—this is an amazing way to remember each year of your marriage, but again, the idea was NOT mine originally and was inspired by someone else’s anniversary photos. This is why it is so important to link to the ORIGINAL source when you are pinning things to Pinterest. People deserve to be credited for their ideas properly. If you have any questions or if you know of the original source for the anniversary photo inspiration, please use the Contact form to get a hold of me. Thanks!
Last week, I mentioned that we took our Anniversary Picture. If you remember, we’re going to try to do something similar to this each year:
Photo Removed, as the original source/link is no longer available from Pinterest.
Please credit your Pinterest pins properly!
And here’s ours!
This is what it looks like in a frame:
The frame was a gift from my in-laws. The font & designs match our wedding invitations, so I knew it would be perfect for this project.
This is the picture we’re holding:

Right now, I have them displayed separately, in two different frames. The wedding photo we used is 4×6, so I made this year’s photo 5×7. Next year, I’ll print a 4×6 of this year’s photo and a 5×7 of the new photo to add to the frame, so that each current year’s photo is 5×7 and each previous year’s photo is 4×6. As we add more photos, I imagine them on a console table in an area like the front hallway of whatever house we end up in, with the main photo in the big frame sitting on the table and each year’s previous photos hung gallery style along the wall. Does that make sense? Here, like this:
Yes, I am a big dork and made a rendering of what this might look like.
I am excited to see how the photos change over time, as we add to our family (and incorporate our children!).
Have you started any new “traditions” with your new family since you married?
