An Anniversary Surprise

A couple weekends ago, we hosted a surprise 40th wedding anniversary party for my in-laws on Kelley's Island. Jon's parents took their 1-day honeymoon on Kelley's island 40 years ago but haven't been back in ages. They've spent the last 40 years putting all of their time, energy and attention into their children, so their children decided to pay them back in a small way. 

We invited their close friends and family for a celebration, and my awesome friend Jean-Marie was on-hand to take photos of the event. She was the best investment ever! I love how many candid moments she captured, and these are pictures and memories we'll have forever.

 Confusion. Then surprise. Then happiness. We pulled it off!

Anna is too cool for Hollywood.

Who let that girl have chocolate???? ;-)

Emerson is obsessed with golf carts now. Birthday gift idea???

Though we were nervous that we wouldn't pull the whole thing off without suspicion, it all fell into place and was the perfect day. 

Happy anniversary you crazy kids!

  1. This is awesome! I love when surprises work out...we gave my parents a trip to Italy as a thank you for paying for our wedding and I was SO worried it would get spoiled somehow. The look on their faces was the best part. Beautiful photos too!
