Outdoor Vintage Vow Renewal
Outdoor Vintage Vow Renewal Details:
This is what Chandice shared about the party- “Mike and Megan were enjoying their first dance at their wedding. All of the sudden Megan whispered to Mike, “Please hold me, I don’t think I can walk”. Within a matter of days Megan had lost all feeling in her legs. She was no longer able to walk on her own. For the next few years Mike, a member of our armed forces who has served over seas, took care of his new wife’s every need. Carrying her to and from her bed, driving her to doctors appointments, and loving her as unconditionally as any man could.
Rejoice in Recovery
Megan recently learned that the cause of her destroying illness was Lyme Disease. She has only this year began to have function in her legs again. She has just been able to walk on her own. We wanted to create a lovely vow renewal for this incredible couple. This would give them a second chance at their first dance. It couldn’t have been more magical.
Michelle Money, a friend of mine, had organized a women’s retreat in which Megan would be attending . She decided it would be the perfect time to have Mike join and do the vow renewal. The couple asked Michelle to officiate and it was beautiful. One thing Michelle really wanted to incorporate in for the couple was a foot washing ceremony. It was symbolic of their new abilities and reminding them of the vows they made years ago to love in sickness and in health which they have embodied in every way.
Setting and Decor
I knew I wanted the back drop for the renewal, as well as the foot washing, to be flowy and rustic. We went with the rustic farmhouse arch and beautiful blowing drapes combined with a gorgeous vintage settee. I chose a beautifully simplistic basin with delicate pink rose petals and a crystal pitcher. There wasn’t a dry eye in house during the unforgettable moments of unconditional love shared between Mike and Megan as they gently washed one another’s feet.
Of course, no celebration is complete without delectable treats. I put together a vintage pie table using bee boxes, raw wood chargers, a variety of cake stands including my favorite jadeite ones and the most gorgeous florals. The garlands were made from olive and eucalyptus and smelled as divine as they looked. We had traditional pies from the ever talented Tehmi at June Pie as well as gluten-free varieties from the culinary genius Tana Besendorfer of Gluten-Free on a Budget cookbook. Everyone was raving about both the traditional and gluten-free pies. Since our groom was vegan, Tana even created a mouthwatering vegan coconut cream pie. He was ecstatic!
The pie decorated sugar cookies were the perfect take home gift for each guest and couldn’t have turned out more fitting with the theme. Shanan over at Enchanted Cookie Boutique is a cookie genius and took our vision right from my mind and placed it perfectly on each cookie. Fresh crab apples picked just hours before the ceremon y where a final little touch that we thought fitting for this celebration. It was truly an honor to be a part of this special day with Mike, Megan and my generous and loving friend Michelle.”
