Jeff + Teri: Vow Renewal Ceremony


This past weekend, I was lucky enough to have been able to capture an absolutely beautiful vow renewal ceremony. Jeff & Teri have been married for 35 years and, as their son Eric pointed out in his champagne toast, their marriage is now old enough to run for president! To celebrate the milestone, the two decided to renew their vows with an intimate backyard ceremony at a friend's house. I've been told about how perfect this space was for some time now, but I could not BELIEVE how gorgeous it was once I got there. Talk about a dream!

Jeff & Teri had a simple ceremony with their two sons Eric & Chris. They lit candles as a family, exchanged new rings, played music, and then celebrated with champagne & cake! They had readings & speeches and it really ended up being a fun day. We had beautiful weather (just a little chilly!) but as the sun came through the blooming trees, everything was perfect. Eric & Chris walked their mom down the aisle and Teri's sister made their cake. We took a few new family photos and a few photos of Jeff & Teri together and it ended up being the best ending to a great day.

Jeff & Teri, thank you so much for trusting me to capture such a special night for you! Congratulations on 35 years of marriage!! Your ceremony and celebration were beautiful!!
