One Year Anniversary Destinations

The other day David and I were talking about going somewhere fun for our one year anniversary coming up on October 6th. Especially because we are hoping to (soon!) grow our family and realize this may be the last big trip we can take before we're a family of three four - Finn counts.
We have been blessed to go to Hawaii three times since we've been married - spoiled I know.
October 2012 -- Once for our honeymoon to Kauai
March 2013 -- For one of my best friends weddings in Maui
April 2013 -- And for my brother-in-law's wedding in Maui (3.5 weeks after the last one!)
So as much as we absolutely love Hawaii we most likely won't be going there to celebrate the big one year.

Cypress Inn in Carmel
Another spot that has so much meaning is the hotel we stayed in when we got engaged. The balcony over the door was our veranda! Cypress Inn is also extremely pet friendly - as is Carmel. So that would be an easy choice for us!
Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara
I have always wanted to go here!
Have any suggestions of somewhere we should travel?
Can't believe it has almost been a year!


  1. Come to Charleston! Get a beach house or stay downtown. Shopping, history, the beach, great restaurants there's so much to do!

  2. South Africa is suppose to be the bomb! It's on my bucket list for sure!!
    If you don't get on a plane I would say Carmel would be my choice!
    Or, what about Tahoe?
    There's the Ritz there that is suppose to be killer!

  3. All of those are places I'd love to visit! If I had to pick off that list I honestly don't know what I'd choose. The Bacara looks gorgeous.
    Our one year anniversary is coming up in August and were trying to figure out plans as well...we'll probably just be going somewhere close to home as were also planning a trip to the Bahamas for this winter.


  4. Any of those places would be incredible!
    I don't know how to choose and I'm not the one even going!
    I just love looking at your wedding photos by the way.
    You looked so beautiful!
    I can only hope my day looks just as pretty :)

  5. You're so lucky to be close to so many gorgeous spots! I also love Montage in Laguna Beach!! xo

  6. Gorgeous pictures!

    Congratulations on one year :)


  7. You are so lucky to have been to Hawaii three times in a year!! I haven't been since I graduated high school -- over 12 years ago. Major sad face here. My husband doesn't like to fly so we usually just drive places. I would love love love to go to Italy if I were you. Carmel is always fun too! We did a Carmel trip when I was pregnant with Owen and decided while we were there that we probably wouldn't be back (maybe for a day trip) with kids because it's really just a romantic place. Anyway, gorgeous wedding photos! Crazy how fast the years go by -- especially the first!

  8. Any of those places would be absolutely fabulous!! Congrats on your anniversary! Your wedding pics are gorgeous! :)

  9. All of these places look a-mazing!! Bora Bora is my ultimate trip too. Bacara looks like a dream too!

  10. Congratulations on your anniversary! If I had to choose, I would definitely pick Paris as I've always wanted to go there!


  11. doesn't the first year go by so fat, i know you still have a few more months until your first but it will be here before you know it! my husband and i established early on that he plans what we do for our anniversary on the odd years and i'm the even years. which means i'm off the hook this year!

  12. My vote is for Italy! Specifically Florence! Bed and Breakfast! Beautiful city! Congrats on ya'll's one year!!
