Bert + Laura: Celebrating 30 Yrs. of Marriage

I received a text on a Thursday evening from a dear friend and fellow photographer to inquire about my availability for the coming Saturday. Luckily, I was free. He had double-booked himself for the day and he asked me to photograph a couple's vow renewal. This wasn't just any vow renewal, this was the celebration of celebrating 30 years of marriage. The bride (because we're always a bride right?) reached out to me and because we had never met, I politely asked her to visit my website to ensure that she was okay with my style before me moved forward. More than anything I want to ensure that my wonderful clients are pleased with the end result. She called me back within the hour, booked me on the spot, and Saturday afternoon, I was on the freeway to journey 3 hours to document this once in a lifetime milestone. 

Their home is insanely gorgeous and the intimate ceremony and reception area was perfectly decorated in their backyard. Not only were their family and friends a blast to hang out with, but the food was delicious, and Too-Short (the groom's close friend) surprised them with an encore mini-concert in celebration of their renewal. This was my first vow renewal and it was as dreamy as ever! Please enjoy some of my favs from their special day!

Give me all of the elopements, small backyard weddings, vow renewals, and all things pretty! All the pretty things!!
