Amber & Jason - 10 year vow renewal
What started last year as a fun suggestion to capture my friend and her husbands 10 year wedding anniversary, quickly turned into reality when Amber jumped at the idea! Without missing a beat, she had a beautiful vision to do a vow renewal with her husband Jason. But this time they would be able to include 2 little guests that weren't able to attend their actual wedding day back in 2010.
Parker, her oldest, had always told her that he wished he had been there for their "first" wedding. So she knew this would be the perfect way to not only celebrate their love for each other, but to include their 2 beautiful children in the process.
We started the session with Jason and Amber sharing vows they had written to each other, while the kids listened on; watching their parents with love in their eyes and joy in their hearts. Their little girl Rowan maybe didn't appreciate the sentiment as much as she took off running during Amber's vows. But it added some laughter and big smiles and will be just another moment that made the session so special.
Amber chose to have the session on their actual anniversary; which was ideal considering they had a fall wedding and the colors that Calgary provided us with that day were nothing short of gorgeous! Amber's rust dress and STUNNING bouquet were the perfect compliment to the yellows and oranges on Nose Hill.
When the vows were finished, we made sure to do some beautiful family photos before setting the kids up with some snacks, blankets and movies so we could finish the day with just the two of them. And although I truly love the images of the family; I always love those special moments with just the couple. Even after all these years together, you can really see how much they adore each other and love the life they have built.
Please enjoy some of my personal faves from this gallery. And be sure to stay for my final words and vendor list at the end! :)
To Amber: Thank you so much my sweet friend, for choosing me to be a part of this beautiful celebration in your life. You and your family hold a special place in my heart and I am forever grateful for your friendship.
Thanks you so much for reading along everyone. I hope you loved this gallery as much as I do! - Melanie Xx
