Shop for customized anniversary gifts

What a surprise when Peyton, the creative force behind Love ‘n Labelsasked us to create a one-of-a-kind first anniversary gift for her husband TJ. She runs a vibrant lifestyle and fashion blog, "a destination for fashionistas with big-city style." We're in love with her colorful photography and the way she connects so genuinely with her fans on Instagram.

She decided to surprise TJ on their first anniversary with our custom tie clip. Their first dance lyrics (Ed Sheeran, Thinking out Loud) are inscribed on paper (the traditional first anniversary gift is paper). We love how they can cherish this keepsake forever, and always think back to their first dance!

Peyton writes about her husband TJ with so much love and adoration (sometimes calling him "the stud that I scored"!) We had the chance to hear their love story from Peyton's point of view.

What is True Love?

Peyton writes, "True love is finding that one person who will turn your whole world around – someone who you share all of your wildest hopes & dreams with & they’ll encourage you to pursue them... someone who you share life’s disappointments with because you are stronger together than on your own.”

A Dazzling Proposal

TJ proposed to Peyton on a boardwalk on the La Jolla coast. To capture this moment on the cliff, TJ hired Jenna Joseph Photography to secretly meet them at the romantic La Jolla beach. With the waves crashing and TJ down on one knee, you'd think these were stills from a movie!

After the ceremony, a celebration followed at Cherokee Country ClubPeyton reminisces, It was seriously a dream come true for us, and I would recommend this venue to ANYONE hosting any type of event.”

Peyton and TJ's wedding photographer, Katherine Birkbeck, is an absolute master. She captured the style and joy of the occasion flawlessly.
