Marriage Matters: Sweet Anniversary + Vow Renewal

Jeanna and Za are living proof of #anniversarygoals. For not only does this darling duo have the most adorable baby boy ever, but they’re also still madly in love with one another. As proven through these sweet captures from Amanda Lenhardt Photography, we’ve got their special vow renewal ceremony + anniversary session waiting for you to ooh and awe over in The Vault!

From Amanda Lenhardt PhotographyThis shoot started with the idea of celebrating the everyday. A beautiful family in their home, the little moments of a mother and son and them living life together. It wasn’t about fabricating emotion but capturing what was already there. Marriage is hard work, but a beautiful reminder of grace. It’s about remembering to love deeply, to cherish the everyday moments, and remembering to celebrate each other.

It was a beautiful sunny day when I arrived at Jeanna and Za’s home. This home sits a few blocks away from the ocean and is perfectly tucked away in St. Augustine, Florida. Their home was full of personal details, a labor of love for the both of them as they continue to grow their beautiful family. They spent time getting ready, writing their vows and just enjoying time as a family. They incorporated details from their original wedding day, her wearing some of the jewelry and his shirt. As the sun began to set we made our way out to the beach to celebrate the last few years of marriage. Every year of marriage is about renewing your vows. It’s about realizing what you’ve learned on your journey so far, it’s about remembering what you promised to each other on your wedding day. It about doing life together, not letting each other grow weary. The whole day was a beautiful reminder of what it means to love deeply and put love on display.

Romantic Boho Engagement Shoot

Take one adorable duo, a stunning locale like Washington Oaks Garden State Park and a talented photog that loves them both dearly and the results are this: a breathtaking (+ seriously sweet) engagement sesh sure to brighten even the dreariest of work weeks.  Think one light-filled image after another, plus a cute pup.  Head to The Vault for even more captured by Jenna Alexander.  It’s all sorts of awesome.

From Jenna Alexander… Wowsers, I love this engagement session!

So it’s kind of a cool story how I met these two. I was at my shop one day and all of a sudden a soops cute couple walked in. They left and another couple walked in and… no, i’m just kidding, John and Emily were the soops cute couple! So anyway, they walked in and said something like, “Hey! are you Jenna? We’re best friends with Meredith (former bride / my best friend’s sister)!”  After that first encounter, we became instant friends. Emily and I bonded over crafting, yoga, and running, and Za and John bonded over surfing, being outside, and eating.

The week before John proposed to Emily, he called me up and asked me if I should shoot the proposal or just engagement photos, after she said “yes,” of course. Knowing Emily, I thought she’d like to pick out a cute dress for a photo shoot (which she did), so I suggested the latter. And here we are now.

Below you’ll find John and Emily’s engagement photos taken at the most beautiful state park, Washington Oaks! Wow. It’s beautiful, and so is this couple. I’m beyond happy for these two to tie the knot! Hope you enjoy their photos!

Palm Coast Beach Wedding with Modern Touches

This Palm Coast wedding is just about as gorgeous as you can get; taking a cue from classic (soft pastel palette and the perfect white tent), a nod from modern ( hello chevron table runners and boxed centerpieces) and that signature ocean view that Florida is known for. Have a look at all the prettiness captured by Jen Shannon Photography with florals by Cypress and coordination by Corrie Nichol Weddings & Events right here!

This beautiful wedding took place at the Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast, FL. Hammock Beach Resort is one of the biggest tourist resorts in Palm Coast and is a very large property. The combination of traditional pastel flowers with modern touches of chevron really made it feel like a beautiful resort wedding. They used a combination of lanterns and flowers for some centerpieces, and then these beautiful wooden boxes filled with flowers and mason jars for others. They used numbers that you’d put on your house to show your address on blocks for their table numbers. They used a live band at their reception that was jut fantastic and even did a second line, a New Orleans tradition. For place cards, they used sand filled boxes since it was right on the beach. It was beautiful.

State Park Engagement in the Great Outdoors

Engagement sessions are such a fun way for a couple to get cozy in front of the camera and really bask in the glow of fiance-hood. And bonus, you get amazing images out of it like these beauties shot by Flora + Fauna along with the prettiest of floral crowns crafted by The Conservatorie Floral & Event Design. It’s a state park rendezvous and you can see even more right here.

Washington Oaks State Park is one of my favorite places to go, not only to photograph people — but to just empty my mind and walk through the surroundings. There is so much contrast in this park, which makes it ideal for photos. And it’s always fun to run into little critters along the way.

Florida Wedding at Hammock Beach Resort from Liga Photography

Liga Photography is filling our screens with a seriously gorgeous Florida fête today, and for that, I couldn’t be more grateful. Because if there was ever a way to get your work week of to the prettiest of starts, it would be soaking up every last lovely image in this gallery. Elegant, classic, filled to the brim with love – I don’t think it gets much better. See it all here.

From Abby LigaSometimes there are moments in life where you just know that it feels right. When meeting and working with Kristin and Jonathan, that “right” was something I felt between them immediately. I love being able to feel that with my couples. There’s a sense of purity and honor that Kristin and Jonathan share between each other, and it’s quite easy to see it. Their wedding took place at the luxurious Hammock Beach Resort, perfectly nestled right on the coast of the Atlantic here in Florida. From Kristin’s classic beige leather Louboutins and pale pink bridesmaids dresses, to ivory flowers and muted gray linens, keeping it natural was the name of the game. Lisa Stoner of E-Events and Botanica did one fantastic job of setting the intimate tone of the day with design and floral. It was truly an honor to be the one to document their wedding. Thank you to the lovely Kristin and Jonathan for being such wonderful people and subjects.
