Intimate Vow Renewal | Chickasaw State Park - Jackson, TN | The Hatches
MR & MRS HOARD | SURPRISE VOW RENEWAL
Chickasaw State Park in Jackson, Tennessee | November 11, 2016
Josh and Lizz are very dear friends of ours. Also, very new friends to us. Lizz and I met online in quite a few different photography groups. We first met in person when I borrowed some maternity gowns from her for one of my sessions and lets just say, I've kinda bugged her ever since ;). Lizz is now one of my best friends. We talk every day about everything. She calls to tell me something hilarious her kids have done. And she calls me when the day is too stressful and just needs someone to listen to her feelings.
Josh and Lizz have been married for 5 years. Those 5 years weren't easy. Among many joyous and incredible moments were some low and deeply moving moments. Being the strong individuals they are, together, they over came their struggles. As every marriage has its own version of trying times, what really counts is how the two of you get through those times together. More importantly, how you handle each other's hearts in the process. After what seemed to be the most trying year for them, Josh reached out to Camille Yadron and I. He wanted to do something extra special for Lizz this anniversary. Of course, how could we possibly say no?!
We pulled together The Dress Theory, Kate from Salon 387 and Kasey Acuff - Make-Up Artist for Lizz's all new bridal experience. Lizz, having NO idea what was going on was told to take a shower and be ready by 9:ooAM for someone to pick her up. I'll go ahead and tell you, YES Lizz asked questions all freaking day haha. You can't really get anything past this woman. Camille picked Lizz up and took her to all of her destinations and drove her to Chickasaw State Park where she was awaited by her husband, Josh, Jacob and I. The look on her face was beyond priceless. It made keeping it a secret from her SO much more meaningful.
They had a first look all over again. Our hearts melted. Josh made new vows to Lizz. Lizz made new vows to Josh. Again, they were Mr and Mrs Hoard.
The whole day went so perfect I could have cried for weeks. We cannot thank everyone enough who helped pull this day together. My heart is overjoyed knowing that Camille and I could give these two such a special day and make new memories for them to cherish and hold onto forever.
I LOVE YOU BOTH. <3
