Surprise 30th Anniversary Vow Renewal Ceremony


After 30 years of marriage, Richard gave Ann the wedding they never had.

It was stunning; with beautiful florals, table settings, and decorations designed and coordinated by their daughters. It was meaningful; held in their own backyard, with friends and family who traveled from around the world to celebrate with them. And it was all a surprise!

Their daughter Liesel contacted me earlier this year to tell me about their plan to surprise Ann with a vow renewal ceremony for her parents’ anniversary. She told me that they wanted to gift Ann with a photography session and hair & makeup appointment. The couple had never taken professional photos together before, so this was already a fun gift! But little did Ann know, that while she was away from their house, an entire ceremony would be set up to surprise her with!

The plan worked! She was completely surprised to return home and walk right into a beautiful ceremony, surrounded by their children and lifelong friends.

This was so special to see and an honor to photograph. Congratulations on 30 wonderful years of marriage, Ann & Richard!
