These two couples decided to have a double vow renewal on their ten year anniversary, although they were married on two different days within the same month. They are related to each other, (brother-in laws and sister-in-laws) which made for a fun trip to California. A few years ago we did a double wedding with two sisters that thought it would be fun to get married on the same day to their husbands. Thank goodness Mark and I shoot together, it really optimizes the couple’s photography time and makes things so much easier!
The two ladies wore the same wedding gowns as they did the day they were married and looked fantastic in them! Wrist corsages and boutonnières were by Valley Flora. I liked the idea of wrist corsages for a vow renewal, instead of the traditional bouquet that a bride typically has at a wedding. We began with some early morning portraits at Bardesonno before departing to St. Joan of Arc in Yountville. One of the unique features of the double vow renewal was that the Priest that married Bridie and Ed ten years ago was flown to California to perform their vow renewal as well as Maureen and Craigs.
