The Prettiest Pieces Vintage Rentals Vow Renewal
Amber and Carlos

 Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to travel to Greensboro, North Carolina with Ashton of Ashton Kelley Photography to photograph our mutual friends’ surprise vow renewal. Yes, you read that right, a SURPRISE vow renewal! Amber, our bride, planned a full vow renewal to surprise her husband of 5 years at the Prettiest Pieces Vintage Rentals’ event space in Greensboro, North Carolina.

The Surprise

 Amber skillfully planned the event as a complete surprise for Carlos who didn’t suspect the weekend was out of the ordinary until he read a letter explaining he was to put on a suit and get to the altar ASAP! How freaking FUN, right?! Now I know most people would not enjoy a surprise vow renewal or surprise wedding… But, the thing you have to know about Carlos and Amber is that their relationship was built on this kind of spontaneity! Carlos first proposed to Amber and planned their wedding as a surprise for her! So this whole surprising each other with big events is not anything new for them. Ha!

I know a lot of couples probably would be mortified at the idea of something like this but it was really sweet to see how natural it worked for Amber and Carlos, and how the surprise made the impact Amber was hoping to achieve that much more emotional for Carlos. When someone goes above and beyond to plan something elaborate as a vow renewal complete with photographer, videographers, and their entire family in attendance, the person it’s being thrown for cannot help but feel so special, valued, and loved.

The Pledge

Holding back tears, Carlos and Amber pledged their love again in front of an intimate group of friends and family at the Prettiest Pieces Vintage Rentals. It was a beautiful day, full of gorgeous details and styling, as Amber is a photographer herself. I hope you enjoy this quick view into all of the beautiful little details Amber planned out for Carlos from their Prettiest Pieces Vintage Rentals vow renewal ceremony and reception in Greensboro, North Carolina! You can find more from this day from Ashton Kelley Photography on her blog, as well!

We then took a few minutes while the clouds were holding back their tears to let Amber and Carlos bask in the moment together; to snuggle up and kiss for a few minutes before the whirlwind of the day took over.

After our time with the couple for portraits, we traveled to The Prettiest Pieces Vintage Rentals’ event space for the ceremony! Amber and Caroline did such a beautiful job with designing and setting up the space for this romantic, candle-lit ceremony.

Then Amber made her way down the aisle, amongst the glow of the candle’s, and she and Carlos reaffirmed their promises of forever to each other in front a small group of friends and family.
