If I Could Do It All Again

I recently found the blog of an incredible local photographer that made me ask myself the question, "If given the chance, would I do it all again?" More specifically, if I could go back in time, would I change anything about my wedding? My first response was yes, I would absolutely go back and do it again. It was the best day of my life. Why wouldn't I want to relive it? But would I change anything? Yeah, I think so.

Our lives have changed so much since our wedding day over 4 years ago. Our tastes are different, our friends are different, our address is completely different. If money were no object, I would celebrate my 5 year anniversary with a Stepp Wedding Part II.

Dream with me...

First, I think I would have an outdoor wedding surrounded by yellow wildflowers (assuming the weather and my hair cooperated). This is, after all, just a dream.


How adorable are these invitations and wedding favors?



Todd's groomsmen would definitely have to wear suspenders.


Just a cozy, intimate wedding with my closest family and friends.


Where we would take fabulous photos like this one:


Anthropologie would provide the table settings.


While we dined under the stars with our best friends.


Wait a second, the picture above looks familiar...


Oh yeah, that's what it reminded me of.

So yes, I'm one of those girls who would do her wedding all over again, but only because some really special people have come into our lives that didn't get to share it with us the first time. I guess I could just go all out on a vow renewal ceremony. I do love to plan a party!


  1. Wish we could have been there.

    We love you both.

    [I would SO help you plan that party, fyi.]

  2. The invitations and fans are a couple from Huntsville! I went to HS with that guy's brother. Crazy, huh?!?!

  3. How weird!! Small world for sure :)

  4. i love the hail bails and umbrellas. and the gorgeous first photo! and i totally get what you mean about new and amazing friends. maybe we should just start having anniversary parties of some sort and play our wedding videos for our new friends. too self absorbed? ok, well maybe so. then new party it is! :)- ash
