This intimate, surprise vow renewal was a dream to design & style. And we were 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, we knew we wanted a ‘wow’ backdrop for the ceremony and a ‘wow’ hanging installation over the reception table. And boy-oh-boy, what we dreamed up and created was more than wow….it was magical. And the press since publication from Green Wedding Shoes has our pampas grass install & tablescape being featured by ALL the major wedding blog IG accounts. Talk about a vow renewal that keeps on giving. This one for sure does and we can’t stop grinning from ear to ear!
We first approached the bride, Karly, with an idea of a Vow Renewal Editorial. She and her husband would pose as models in my design. But Karly decided she’d really like to surprise her hubby with the wedding they never had and the surprise vow renewal was born.
To bring this dream vow renewal to life, we assembled a magical team of Fort Worth based wedding vendors. And we pulled out all of the stops because we all wanted this experience to be something truly special for Karly and Rich. And the greatest part in all of it was that Rich, Karly’s husband, thought he was a groom model for the entire shoot, until his bride was standing by his side at the altar.
We couldn’t have scripted their conversation even if we tried, so here it is in their words: as Karly walked down the aisle, Rich called across the courtyard at her and said “this is the wedding we never had” and as Karly stood by his side, and a surprise guest officiant walked out from around the corner, Karly leaned over to Rich and said “this IS the wedding we never had.” And then their friends and family came out from hiding and joined in as witnesses as they renewed their vows to each other.
And if that doesn’t make you have tears in your eyes…we can say we all cried enough for you as there wasn’t a dry eye in the house after witnessing that special moment.
