I’m known for capturing those didn’t-know-you-were-there shots and busting a move on the dance floor just to get those perfect candids. I also work with you to ensure we incorporate your style and story into your engagement and wedding photos!
Ashley & Josh had a gorgeous Mt. Rainier Vow Renewal ceremony that celebrated their 5 year wedding anniversary at Mt. Rainier. Coming all the way from Rhode Island, these lovebirds exchanged their right on the base of Mt. Rainier on one of the most clear and beautiful days. Seriously, this Mt. Rainier Vow Renewal was incredible and so touching to watch. Also, the mountain was out in full form!
These two are so perfect together with their adventurous spirits, the way they look at each other, this day was absolutely incredible. Words just can’t describe how amazing it was being at Mt. Rainier, with the sun shinning all around them, as they renewed their vows in their own private spot on the mountain.
Congratulations Ashley & Josh! Here’s to many more years of adventure!
Here’s a little bit more about their story: “According to some if you follow traditional anniversary gifts, year five is wood. Josh represented the wood tradition in a couple different ways. His favorite wood is birch, so he hand carved a small piece of birch, hand sanded and polished it and now holds a bracelet he had custom made for me. Several of the clay beads on the bracelet were made from materials he took from 8 locations that have made a part of our relationship.
Some locations and materials included are; birch bark from Mt. Manadanock, NH, our first mountain we summited together, deck wood from the dock he proposed to me on in Mystic, CT, mulch from our wedding venue, Lakeview Pavillion in Foxboro, MA. Once the beads are made, they stamp each bead with a letter so you know exactly what material is in each bead – now our memories and experiences will forever be with me.
Our rings were made by Dalia Woodia on Etsy who takes KOA wood and hand makes wedding rings. Our rings have an accent piece of mineral called mica in it. When we exchanged those rings, Joshes wood ring took place of his old one. However mine did not. My original rings are a set and still stay on my left hand. The wood ring sits below my grandmothers engagement ring on my right hand.
I am sure many couples looking back on their wedding day can agree that although it was a magical day, the movement of it all shared with a large group creates a certain experience. We chose to do this vowel renewal for us. To connect and share why we fell in love with one another in the first place. We laughed after and asked why we didn’t do this the first time.
We are adventure nuts, National Park hoppers who love to travel. That is why we chose Washington State. With three National Parks to visit we found it fitting to have our vow renewal at one.
I look back at these photographs and I am reminded why I fell in love with my husband and how deeply I care for this man. Sarah Jane captured that.”
