Favsies: Family {What We Are Most Thankful For}

Posted November 25, 2015

Erin + AustinAshley Gillett

As I prep the sweet potato casserole and only-from-scratch cranberry chutney, I can’t help but reflect personally on what might be my favorite holiday. As everyone slows down for a moment to reflect upon our blessings and gather together with the ones we love most, it isn’t the food—or the football; it’s family. In the I Do office, we are so thankful this year (and every year!) for the people we get to work with: YOU!, our fabulous clients and community of vendors and friends. We are thankful for the opportunity we get every day to work hard, and for the opportunity to have fun while doing a job we love. We are also, above all, thankful for family. Our jobs give us a unique perspective to see the whole process of a family being created; there’s nothing like it. Season by season we celebrate couples: joining together, celebrating anniversaries, and making new memories. It’s the stuff of life, and we couldn’t be more grateful to be part of it all.

In celebration, we are decided this was a perfect time to share the latest installment in our Favsies series: our favorite family shots from past weddings. These photos beautifully capture the essence of what family is all about.

We hope this post reminds you of all the things you have to be thankful for, too. Take a moment to grab someone special and let them know you love them. Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at I Do! And don’t leave yet! Grab an extra piece of pumpkin pie (or my favorite, chocolate bourbon pecan pie) and keep scrolling for more of our favorite family shots.
