The day to day schedule of marriage can be joy-filled, but also tiresome. I can’t tell you enough how important it is to get dressed up every now and then and do something special for each other–just the two of you! Your anniversary, if anything, is the perfect day to do that! It’s a day to stop everything and remember why the two of you fell in love in the first place. A day to remember and celebrate those vows that you pledged to one another, years ago! It’s a day to reignite the fire for each other, and another chance to fight for each other, and the love that you built, together. Your marriage deserves to be celebrated!! Today, Lauren of Lauren Simmons Photography is sharing 5 reasons why it’s so important to invest in your anniversary! I’m so excited to have her share her heart for marriage, and celebrating it so well!!

Reasons to Invest in Your Anniversary
Hey there, I’m Lauren! I’m a wedding and anniversary photographer in Virginia Beach, VA and surrounding areas for joyful couples with full hearts. I view marriage as sacred and for that reason I pour my heart and soul into getting to know each couple I work with wholeheartedly and the vision they have for their wedding and marriage. Recently, I’ve started to offer Anniversary Sessions! This has been a long time vision I’ve had for my business since I’m passionate about the marriage relationship between a couple.
1. Marriage Is Worth Celebrating
I don’t know about you, but don’t you like to do something to commemorate your anniversary? A time set apart for just the two of you. Whether it’s 1 year, 5 years, 10 years, or 15 years, they’re all worth celebrating. Your marriage is standing the test of time!
2. A Lot Has Happened Since Your Wedding
You’ve had vacations, games, time with family, and maybe even a few kiddos, but you’ve also might have had bad hair days, broken down cars, medical battles, and losses. If it’s been 1 year or 50 years, more than likely your marriage has been tested in many ways and you’ve chosen to stay together and love each other through it.
3. You Need Time Together
Most likely, it’s been a long time since you and your hubby have made a day for just the two of you! In this world of constant communication and busyness, you’re in need of time to turn off the phone and just be together. I always recommend making a day of it!
4. It’s Time to Be Pampered
There’s nothing like a manicure and a new dress for your Anniversary Session! I remember after I had Baby Taylor all I wanted to do was get my nails done, because it made me feel fresh and pretty. It’s also something your hubby can join you – hold the polish 😉 You’re probably in the habit of serving others all day long every day and it’s crazy how much something simple can renew your mindset!
5. You Want to Gift Each Other Something Special
One thing that my husband and I found is that we want to commemorate our anniversary, but didn’t know what to do which is why we invested in an Anniversary Session. Now, we have pictures of us together that showcase our love and how far we’ve come since our wedding day.
There are TONS more reasons why I think you should invest in your anniversary and I crammed a lot of information into these 5 reasons. But if you had to take away one thing from this, I would say to remember that your marriage IS worth celebrating no matter how long you’ve been married!!
