We all know Covid-19 changing the order of things: when your ceremony will happen, when your reception will happen, and what the size of each might be. So, we’re thrilled to share a gorgeous example of how your second celebration can be just as pretty as the first.

Ashley Kekuva, photographer & owner of iamlatreuo photo, sent us this stunning & ethereal styled vow renewal. Featuring a real couple, the talented team of Southern California vendors took elements from their real wedding and laced them gorgeously through this just-as-beautiful vow renewal.

The editorial is a testament to how much little details can elevate your day. Even if you have a small guest list – or the event isn’t “the big day” – things like handcrafted stationery, immaculate table styling, romantic candles and lush florals can make your vow renewal, minimony, micro wedding or wedding day feel grand.

Moreover, the lavish fashion choices show that you don’t have to be casual for a vow renewal, second celebration or micro wedding (which we agree with!) Fancy attire is fit for any sized ceremony! First or second!

From iamlatreuo photo

“Come away to a hidden gem located in Southern California’s finest city, where our inspiration today has led us to a secret allée of Olive Trees encircled in an infinity of fresh florals in palettes of pink with subtle hints of ivory, music and the first sightings of light of the dawn made for all the makings for a heartwarming vow renewal…

The lyrics still echo stirrings of ardor: “You were the brightest shade of sun I had ever seen, your skin was gilded with the gold of the richest kings.”

“And like the dawn, you broke the dark and my whole earth shook”

Riveting lines that first resounded at the couple’s wedding several years ago, now being reacquired into this intimate renewal of vows in wake of how Covid has altered the look of ceremonies, drawing focus on the meaningful details and smaller gatherings to continue honoring love.

The Fashion

Our bride adorned by the very talented Australian couturier Karen Willis Holmes balanced with an air of elegance, sophistication within every detail from stunning Edwardian sleeves to subtle spotted tule with hints of sheerness, with a romantic updo and feminine makeup beautifully styled by Hairology1121 & RPRO Makeup Artist. It was only fitting for luxury bridal accessories crafted by European artisan Gibson Bespoke to complete this look. Meanwhile, our groom looked exceptionally sophisticated in a classic black tuxedo with velvet touches.

The Florals & Decor

Among the pathway quietly rested an inviting tablescape fit for a cherished gathering paired with trickling ivory tapers, lavish florals courtesy of Wild & Behold Florals, organic fruit to delicate paper welcoming guests with unending romance. A most charming white cake from Candy Apple Cakes with soft strokes of hand-painted gold leaf beckoned our attraction for minimalism paired with organic elements.

Sophisticated sanitizing bottles and thoughtful guest parcels included teas, candles, individualized refreshments, handmade organic soaps from Sweet Surrender to sachets of lavender and rose petals for ceremonial details.

The Stationery

The calligraphy invitation suite in delicate handmade paper and letterpress by Michelle Rene Calligraphy, incorporated hues of pastels together beautifully, while the lyrics were composed on sheet music intimately nestled on a bed of roses drenched in the warmth of the Californian sun. All the makings for a timelessly enchanting affair…
