Bright + Modern Vow Renewal Inspiration

You know what’s sweet? Vow renewals. Even sweeter? A vow renewal inspiration that’s filled with pops of color and one sweet lil’ addition. And thanks to the ever-so-talented Tina Jay Photography we’ve got just that to share with you today. A contemporary celebration that’s sure to inspire, we invite you to scroll and pin the pretty that awaits you in The Vault!

From Tina Jay PhotographyThe inspiration for our Bright + Modern Vow Renewal Styled Shoot started when we decided to get together and photograph something fun and happy in these long winter months. The gorgeous, bright details of this styled shoot came together at the perfect time – our shoot took place on the day of the Jonas Blizzard! We managed to get everything put together and photographed, RIGHT as the first flurries started to fall.

We chose a new venue in Central PA for this styled shoot – The Bond, in York, Pennsylvania. The Bond has such a cool vibe, with an industrial feel. I absolutely love the juxtaposition of the bright, geometric details against the industrial look and feel of the venue. We used a square leather table with accompanying acrylic chairs for our table setup, which looked amazing not only with the details, but against the white-washed brick in the venue. And the details – they make me oh so happy! These bright + happy flowers were the perfect pick-me-up for a cold winter day. I absolutely loved the bright florals along with the geometric designs of the paper goods and cake.

The flowy pink tulle skirt that our bride wore was total perfection for this vow renewal. Pair that with a cute-as-can-be white tulle dress for the couple’s daughter, and it was sweetness overload!

York, Pennsylvania Farm Wedding from Craig Photography

The name of the game at SMP is weddings, but every so often we get a peek at the couple before the big day, and it’s always a joy later to find the photos from their wedding in our inbox. These two first graced our pages with their Scrabble inspired engagement shoot, and today Craig Photography is back with their beautiful wedding day!


From the photographers… Firstly, the wedding was held on Jasmine’s family farm that she grew up on. It was absolutely stunning. I love love love when a couple can incorporate such an intimate feel into their wedding and there is no better way to do that than to make it personal. I say having it at your home is pretty personal!

Jasmine & Gabe are an eco-conscious couple so they also included several eco-friendly elements, such as sustainable farm-to-table food, compostable flatware and cutlery, plantable programs (seriously…you could see the wildflower seeds buried in the programs!), and even the wild flowers used throughout the wedding were grown on their property by Jasmine’s mom. Jasmine and Gabe also held a tree planting ceremony following a lovely wedding ceremony, in which they wrote their own very touching vows.

The decor was very warm, very romantic and very personal as well. Jasmine had family heirloom, handmade quilts displayed throughout the property to create a rustic, warm atmosphere. Under the tent was family-style seating with super-long farm tables lined with wildflowers in a variety of vintage vases and bottles, accompanied by vintage books of poetry and stories. There were burlap runners to set it all off. And there was so much fun to be had!! There was a 3-piece band rockin’ the night away, a beer truck to quench your thirst, games such as bean bag toss, badminton and plenty of grounds to take a little walk and stretch your legs or toss a tent down for some overnight camping. Everyone danced, laughed, cried and even the puppies smiled for the camera (seriously… check out the photo of the white poodle pooch).

I also loved how Jasmine set up the ceremony site. The entrance had a row of wildflowers to greet you, seating was not only functional but adorable: bales of straw were covered in cotton material for guests to sit upon and each row was topped off by a tree branch coming up out of the ground and decorated with a mason jar tied to the branch and filled with wildflowers. The altar was very sweet with a homemade wooden backdrop and decorated with flag garlands.

Some of the sweetest parts of the day were when we were able to capture Jasmine & Gabe with Gabe’s adorable children. Oh my goodness were they sweet and to see them be such a big part of the day was heartwarming. Here’s to a new family! Cheers!

Brad and Sarah were married on June 12, 2010. It was a perfect, traditional East Coast wedding. From her romantic Vera Wang dress to her high-fashion Badgley Mischka shoes, Sarah was a classically perfect bride. The couple met while in school at Wake Forest, and afterward moved to Atlanta, GA where they live with their puppy, Bennett.

The ceremony was held at the church where Sarah grew up, and the reception took place under two beautiful tents in her parent’s backyard. The feeling of family love was ever-present throughout the night; from Sarah’s brother’s emotional toast to the brother-brother dance-off that happened between Brad and his older sibling, Chris. From start to finish, the celebration could not have been more beautiful.
