I had the privilege of photo-documenting Ebony and Shawn’s vow renewal ceremony at the gorgeous Grand Cascades Resort in Hamburg, NJ. I was super excited about the day, except for one thing: I had to drive through Manhattan to get there. Living in NYC, I don’t have much need for a car so I rarely drive these days. And that’s fine with me because a). I don’t like driving, and b). I prefer greener methods of transport, i.e. train or bike. The mere thought of driving through the city shakes me! But there was no way around it today, so I bit the bullet and dove right in. And I dare say it was kind of fun! :)
Even more fun was getting to photograph this beautiful event. Ebony and Shawn have a colorful and tight-knit family, and they renewed their vows in front of all their loved ones. The day was as much about celebrating their family as it was about renewing their marriage. There was such an outpouring of love during the toasts, it was so touching to witness.
Congrats to the happy couple and their fabulous family!
Literally 2 seconds after I took this shot ^^, it started to downpour. How’s that for timing?
Right after the ceremony, I found all the kids hanging out in the game room while the adults mingled in the lobby. Too cute!
All of the table decorations came from Ebony’s home collection. So pretty!
