Last Saturday, Cory and I renewed our vows on a beachfront in Malibu, California. We’ve been together for 13 years and married for 5 (our 5th anniversary is coming up on the 20th!). We decided to renew our vows as a way to strengthen the sacred promise we made to each other when we got married 5 years ago. I think it’s so important to do that! Whether it’s having a special ceremony like we had, or just small things like surprise flowers after work or a handwritten love note, it’s these things that keep a relationship fresh and bond strong. Cree was actually my motivation and inspiration to renew our vows this year. Cory and I have this new miracle in our lives now and I wanted to celebrate our love, and what our love together created – our precious son! I was so excited to have my little man be a part of this special moment. We kept it small and intimate, with only about 20 guests – of course, Tamera, Adam and Aden were attendance and I was so happy that my sissy and her family were there to celebrate with me.
I wanted my website members to get the exclusive first look at some of the pictures taken from that day because you are all amazing and I love sharing my life with you here on my blog! Our photographer was the fabulous Elizabeth Messina – she’s fantastic and I think she did a beautiful job capturing the tender and intimate mood of the ceremony. Below, some snapshots from the special day:
