Palm Springs Noir Themed Vow Renewal

The eagle eyed among you may recognise this couple today; we originally featured Emily and Joey’s wedding in 2016! “While we had our wedding in 2016, we actually got married at the courthouse the year before,” the bride told us. “So with 2020 being our fifth wedding anniversary, we decided to do an intimate vow renewal trip.”

As their honeymoon back in 2016 was to Palm Springs, they originally planned to do their vow renewal there, but COVID-19 induced travel restrictions meant they had to figure something else out. Instead, they searched for a Palm-Springs inspired AirBnB right on their doorstep, and this place in Friday Harbor, WA fit the bill!

A Moody meets Romantic Vow Renewal

When Alicia and Vince were first married, there were too many other things going on in their lives that were stressors and made having an actual wedding impossible. Instead they eloped to Vegas for a quick ceremony. “We always planned to save and have a wedding but the timing was just never right and life became too busy,” the bride told us.

“When my husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary, we talked about the wedding we never had and how we would do things differently. We started floating around the idea of renewing our vows and what that would actually look like. I wanted to celebrate us, where we made it in our lives together as partners and ultimately have photos to document our union.”

A Lana Del Rey Inspired Tenerife Vow Renewal

When a wedding photographer decides to renew her vows, you KNOW the photos are going to be totally spectacular. Emma of Epic Love Story renewed her vows with husband Neil, and flew to Mount Teide, a volcano on Tenerife, which holds a special place in their hearts and relationship, to do so. They went on a group holiday together to Tenerife 10 years ago, which is where they both realised they wanted to be a bit more than friends!

They wanted to keep things low key and casual and to leave plenty of time for their pictures with The Mchendrys. Emma wore a black maxi dress which she bought for £20 online! Neil wore an All Saints leather jacket and a denim one from ASOS which Emma painted herself with a verse from a Lana Del Rey song.

We’ll Always Have Paris: A Parisian Meets 1920s Themed Vow Renewal

As we kick off 2020, I’m not sure I can think of a more perfect feature than this roaring 1920s themed vow renewal! And OMG is she a beauty! We feature quite a few vow renewals, but not often those of LGBTQ couples, so I was super excited to hear all about Kaitlin and Stephanie’s love story. The day began life as a styled shoot, but they decided to renew their vows for real. They were married in Paris originally so wanted nods to this throughout too.

“We met at a theatre where we were both bartending in October of 2010”, they began. “We instantly became good friends as we bonded over our love for musical theatre and teaching. In 2011, we both joined forces at a local high school drama program. At the time, Kaitlin was already in a long-term relationship with a woman and Stephanie was in and out of unhealthy relationships with troubled men. We knew that we faced a barrage of judgements and questions from our families and friends, and that there would be serious consequences if we made the choice to be together. We knew that this would literally change our lives as we knew them, yet we found the courage and together.”
