Vow Renewal at Big Lake Private Residence

Amy and Brandon’s Big Lake Vow Renewal was one of the most rewarding events we have ever photographed. To be perfectly honest, we’ve never actually done a “vow renewal” before, so we weren’t exactly sure what to expect. We figured it would be similar to a wedding and we’ve shot so many of those, we thought it would be somewhat the same….and it was. But it was also different than a traditional wedding and so much more! What we didn’t expect is how intimate, special, and emotional the entire day would be.

The entire event was held at Amy’s Aunt’s family waterfront home on Big Lake. To say it had stunning views would be an understatement. It was perfect, the weather was beautiful and the house had a lot of space on the big lawn for the ceremony and celebration afterwards. The décor was relaxed and bright and the entire atmosphere of the day was family focused. Hart’s floral provided bunches of flowers which Amy’s “tribe” made into floral arrangements and Schuh Farms donated Amy’s bouquet.

A Special Surprise for the Guests

What was different than most events we’ve done in the past is that our couple, Amy and Brandon, have been married for over 15 years. Amy and Brandon explained to us and the entire group at the vow renewal that the marriage up until now hasn’t always been easy. As anyone who has been married will tell you, marriage can have rough patches. As they traveled through the tough times, they realized they truly were meant for each other and so Amy and Brandon decided that they wanted a vow renewal to show each other, their family and friends and God the commitment they made to each other 15 years earlier. They also surprised the guests by having a family baptism in Big Lake that included their 3 children.

After the baptism, Amy and Brandon finished off the day by having a big party on the lake! As Amy recounts “Celebrating our marriage and all we’ve been through by dancing and spending time with those we love and have supported us through our journey made our big “party” a blast!”

A Day Like No Other

As photographers, we often get to see firsthand the joy and happiness of couples as they say “I do”. This day took us totally off-guard. To see the emotions, the joy and happiness of this family, recommitting to each other and then becoming baptized in Christ as a family was truly a special treat. For us, this day was one of the most intimate and special events we’ve ever had the opportunity to photograph. We feel so privileged and honored to have been able to document it. We hope you enjoy these photos as much as we enjoyed photographing them. Amy and Brandon ~ we couldn’t be happier for the both of you and wish you many, many more years of happy and blessed marriage together.
