"Hers is an old fashioned heart that holds timeless love.  She's a three page love letter in a world of relationship status updates."

Fast forward to your wedding day.  All the planning and dreaming has finally come to fruition.  Marriage is a journey not a destination... and the same should hold true for your wedding.  It will be one of the most important days of your life, and what better time to tell the person you're about to marry how you feel about them?  It doesn't have to be an elaborate letter, diamonds, or an expensive gift...  Just a few words from the heart are priceless.  Save those letters.  Read them again each year on your anniversary and reflect on the year(s) past and how you've grown as a couple.  As the years go by, note how they will fray and age by each time they're held in your hands.   I love to write, so the process comes fairly easy to me... but if you need a little inspiration on what to say, read on and let these questions inspire you!

  1. What are some things your partner does that makes you smile?

  2. How does your partner make you feel good about yourself?

  3. What's your favorite date/memory you have with him or her?

  4. What makes your partner special or different than anyone else?

  5. When did you first know they were "THE ONE" for you?

Call me a hopeless romantic, but what can I say, I'm a wedding photographer!!!  Looking for another way to add a sentimental touch?  In lieu of a guestbook, by husband and I had our guests write tiny messages to us, scroll them up, and place them in a bottle.  Each year after our dinner and tradition of lighting a sky lantern, we pull one out and read it...  remembering each step of our journey that brought us to where we are today.  Sappy, yes.  Cheesy?  Maybe.  But I wouldn't have it any other way.  Already married?  It's never a bad idea to drop your significant other a thoughtful note, even if it's just to make them laugh or wish them a good day.  Keep the love alive, and hats off to those of you that already do this! 

Happy writing lovebirds.

XO,

Lottie Lillian
