Marriage Matters: The Sweetest 10 Year Vow Renewal

Ryan and Talie have officially delivered #marriagegoals. Because these cuties? They’re a decade in and still having the best time ever. With two sweet babies and Brandon Chesbro on hand, they renewed their vows in an intimate ceremony that you’re sure to love. See it all in The Vault!

From the Bride… When our ten year anniversary came around, my husband Ryan and I decided that renewing our vows was a the best way to commemorate the past decade of our lives together. We wanted it to be just us and our two daughters, an intimate and memorable moment for our small family. Our friend, Brandon, is an amazing photographer, and we couldn’t imagine having anyone else capture the moment, so we traveled from our home in Atlanta to Nashville, where Brandon lives, for the event. We both adore the countryside on the outskirts of town, and so Brandon chose a gorgeous farm and field for our renewal. We were grateful for perfect weather and children who stayed mostly put together as they ran around gathering dandelions while Ryan and I had our small ceremony of sorts. We chose to cold-read our original vows to one another, and it was beautiful and emotional to hear those same words so many years later. Their meaning and promises meant that much more a decade further into our relationship. It was the perfect way for us to revisit and remember the people we were way back then, and when halfway through our reading my oldest daughter brought me a flower and asked that I hold her so that she could hear her daddy’s words to me, it was the perfect picture of who we are today. The evening was exactly what we wanted it to be, the perfect picture of life then and now, a small celebration that we’ll always remember fondly.

Natural Elements + Industrial Architecture Combine For One Gorgeous Editorial

Photos from Katie Lopez Photography, design and decor by JCG Events, florals by Anthology Co. and furniture rentals from Unearthed Vintage — this Miami inspiration session features the absolute best of the best, and the result is unlike any other wedding inspiration you’ve seen before. See all the pretty moments of this organic-meets-industrial-meets-modern masterpiece in The Vault!


From JCG EventsThe goal of this wedding shoot was to create an organic industrial modern wedding. We wanted to inspire through the details and create an overall story. This is what happens when you bring together a wonderful group of creatives in the wedding industry.

The wedding story began with our couple. They are actually married in real life and their love for each other translated through the lens. The venue 1111 Lincoln Road created the perfect backdrop for this shoot. It has an architectural design with clean lines, hanging greener, with concrete and small wood paneling detail. We created a conceptual design for this wedding to inspire and make you reimagine the elements that make a wedding.

We created a ceremony centered around a unique structure and accented with light bulbs loosely strung together to create a romantic backdrop for their wedding. Guests would then be invited to celebrate in the cocktail hour where we created a lounge area in order to make a more intimate setting for guests to be able to converse with one another, celebrate and take in the breathtaking views the venue offers. The focal point of the cocktail space was the helix dome that was placed over the Hampton bar, along with hanging Edison bulbs.

The reception would then follow. Here we used square wooden tables to create one long royal table paired with industrial metal chairs. Designing one long royal table enhanced the intimate romantic yet industrial feel we were looking to accomplish. The centerpieces consisted mostly of greenery with various textures and long black tapered candles in gold modern candleholders. The plate chargers had silver detail and a modern geometric design. We paired them with black linen napkins tucked into hammered metal napkin rings.

The cake was a clean design with a marble fondant finish. The favors were mini chocolate bars with gold calligraphy words on each of them. This concept could also serve as escort cards or place cards. This design and natural feel of the marble cake fit perfectly with the setting. It all was displayed on top of three various height crank tables.

The three spaces for ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all came together in the design. We achieved visually unique experiences for guests at each space for an overall memorable and inspiring design.

This Baseball Inspired E-Sesh Is a Home Run

Take me out to the ballgame because this e-sesh? It’s a home run. Captured by Sawyer Baird, these high school sweethearts (Allie the cheerleader and Matt the baseball player) went back to the open field where it all started, and the results? Just about the sweetest engagement sesh you ever did see. See it all in The Vault!

From Sawyer BairdAllie + Matt are not only two of the sweetest people filled with all the laughter in the world but two amazing people who have loved each other for a long time. When Allie reached out to me about photographing her wedding and engagements…and after I heard about how they met in high school they suggested that we took photos at the high school. It was only fitting for these two.

With Allie being a cheerleader and Matt a baseball player they shared many memories at their high school.

I couldn’t think of a more timeless session than this one. So simple + so sweet!
