A Styled Vow Renewal

Last November I grabbed a few of my favorite wedding vendors and we created a beautiful styled vow renewal with the most incredible couple in love. It was so easy to get the shots we dreamed of when Keven and Kori are not only truly and deeply in love with each other, but they really like each other. I asked them to model because my times with them in the past always left me impressed with how much respect and love remained between them even after years of marriage and small kiddos. They are lovely in all the ways.

The idea was to style an event with a bit of a boho style while keeping it elegant and timeless at the same time. I’m so thankful for the incredible vendors that came together and made it happen with me. Here’s the team who contributed:

Zack + Saskia | A Vibrant and Modern Kingsburg California Wedding

After an adventurous engagement session in the Cambria Mountains, I knew this wedding would be a great one. But it was more than that. This wedding was absolutely breath taking. Amazing details, fabulous vendors, and the bride and groom of course were stunning. It took place on the Kings River in Kingsburg Ca. in the beautiful backyard of the groom's parents. The most memorable detail was an oversized circular swing covered thick in florals and foliage. It was epic and made for some amazing photographs. Take a look at all the goodness from Zack and Saskia's vibrant and modern river side wedding... 

Carly and Mark... together forever | Central Valley California Engagement Session | Visalia Wedding and Lifestyle Photography

Together forever, that's what we sign up for when we say yes to marriage. It's not an easy road but it's a good road. If you asked me how the H... two imperfect people can even do that I'd tell you this... Love well and be lovable. Respect and be respectable. Do this, and you'll be golden. 

These two say yes to forever this fall. I'm excited for their adventure together.
