Casey and Victoria's 5th Wedding Anniversary 2012

Happy 5th wedding anniversary, Casey and Victoria! In five years, they've grown from a family of two to a lovely family of four with their daughter Laurel and their son Oliver. We've watched them grow from little babies to precocious toddlers, and little Laurel has even started pre-school now!

Casey and Victoria met seven years ago on her birthday in September of 2005. He was performing in his band, and she was there to see the show. That's a pretty cool beginning. Two years later, they were married on the beach in Cape Cod not too far from where Casey grew up with Kevin. Victoria walked down a sandy aisle to Casey, where they were married right in front of the ocean.

Casey's best man was his brother, Victoria's maid of honor was her best friend, and their dog Toby was there for both of them. The ceremony was small and very warm and intimate, with readings by friends and a speech by Casey's dad.

The reception was in a restaurant right off the beach. It started with their first dance a champagne toast. And oh do I love a cake-cutting, since it means yummy cake is on the way!

One of my favorite parts of the reception was that they had close friends perform wonderful live music. Such a nice personal touch, and even nicer than hiring a band.
