This intimate, surprise vow renewal was a dream to design & style. And I was tickled pink to learn that it was picked up & featured over at our favorite wedding blog, Green Wedding Shoes.
When first dreaming up this design concept, I knew I wanted a ‘wow’ backdrop for the ceremony and a ‘wow’ hanging installation over the reception table. And what I dreamed up and created was more than wow….it was magical. This stunning surprise vow renewal was picked up by Green Wedding Shoes and since then, it has our pampas grass installation, and custom geometric backdrop featured by ALL the major wedding blog IG accounts & even Martha Stewart Weddings. Talk about a vow renewal that keeps on giving.
I first approached the bride, Karly, with an idea for a Vow Renewal Editorial. But Karly decided she’d really like to surprise her husband with the wedding they never had and the surprise vow renewal was born. She continued the ruse by requesting his participation in the “Editorial” and then we went to work on deciding how exactly we were going to keep it a secret, especially considering their close friend was going to be their Officiant & their family, including their children, would be in attendance.
To bring this dream vow renewal to life, I assembled a magical team of Fort Worth based wedding vendors. I made sure to pull out all of the stops because we all wanted this experience to be something truly special for Karly and Rich.
Honestly, I couldn’t have scripted the “reveal” any better than the conversation that naturally occurred between Karly & Rich as she begin to walk down the aisle.
He said called across the courtyard to her and said…”this is the wedding we never had” and once Karly was standing beside him and a their close friend, the surprise guest officiant, walked out from around the corner, Karly leaned towards Rich and said…”this IS the wedding we never had.” Which then queued up their family and children making their way out of hiding to attend their Vow Renewal ceremony.
Cue the water works!!! Not a dry eye in the house witnessing this special moment.
