10 Ways having fun keeps you young! Melanie and Tim celebrating 12 years of marriage.

We were married in Minneapolis MN at the Basilica of St. Mary. We did our photos at the church before the wedding ceremony. On our way to our reception we drove across the street to the famous Minneapolis Sculpture Garden for a few more fun photos of just the two of us before heading to the rest of the big night ahead – sit down dinner, drinks, and dancing at the Metropolitan. It was an amazing day!

The following year we moved to Sarasota FL. We both had been long time Minnesota/North Dakota residents, and it was time to get out of the cold climate! We picked Sarasota at random after narrowing our list down to our top warm climate choices. We are so happy we did! We are both sun and fun lovers!

Fast forward to this blog, given the nature of Wedding Planner Nicole’s expertise, a “Trash the Dress” photo shoot was in order to celebrate our anniversary. It made perfect sense.

Tim and I have had a really happy and healthy life together. So in this post I wanted to share one of the most important topics, or pieces of “advise” for newlyweds. When you have fun with the people you love, it expresses itself in ways you don’t even realize sometimes. Better immunity, maintaining ideal weight, positive energy and vitality, youthful appearances, optimal mental health, to name a few.

We hope you enjoy a peak into how we kicked off our healthy marriage in 2002 in the first 5 photos and how we continue to celebrate today in the second 5 photos.

Marry your best friend. Don’t take yourselves too seriously or try to be perfect.

 Enjoy being close, embrace your shared space.

Support each other and encourage silliness.

 Work as a team. Enjoy play. Don’t be afraid to act like children sometimes. Keep positive energy flowing no matter what. Smile and laugh everyday.

Hugs, hugs, and more hugs!
