Vow Renewals

Romantic French Chateau Vow Renewal – Bonnie & Christian

“When I saw our photos for the first time I was overjoyed! To see how much we’ve changed in the last three years was crazy. We’ve gone through so much and experiencing the renewal of our commitment and seeing the photos just made it all worth it. We cherish them so much.

Christian and I think photography is so important because it’s a way to cherish our memories so that they will stand the test of time. It’s so beautiful knowing that our great-grandkids can look back on our special day.

Our favourite part of the day was when we exchanged vow books. They were so beautifully created with calligraphy and reading the vows we wrote to each other was an unforgettable experience.

When I think about our vow renewal, I’ll think about how happy we were. After so long we finally got to make memories we had hoped to for so long.”

Bonnie and Christian knew they wanted a beautiful destination vow renewal ceremony. After looking at chateaus in the Lorraine valley of France they chose Hattonchatel Chateau. An incredible, privately-owned chateau that sits atop a hill looking over the valley towns. There was nothing but sun on June 14th, their vow renewal day, allowing everyone to see miles upon miles of beautiful France!

They had some elements of their original wedding day not go as planned and whilst Bonnie and Christian were ecstatic to be married, and still celebrate their relationship frequently, their wedding day event did not seem like the best start to their marriage when they look back on it, and their photographs were not as promised.

For their vow renewal, they wanted a new day to look back on and reminisce on when they thought of their vows, marriage, and deep commitment to one another.

The day of their vow renewal, Bonnie and Christian got ready at the Chateau in their bridal suite, the Belle Skinner which pays respect to the American benefactor who financed the rebuilding of Hattonchatel after wars. The rooms at the chateau are decorated with beautiful antique style.

These two wanted a classic yet slightly boho theme for their re-nups and I believe they planned their day enhancing the best of both worlds. They chose the most intentional and beautiful elements such as painted macarons to celebrate the country they were renewing their vows in.

Bonnie wanted a beautiful intimate day and she got just that. Exchanging vows as the sun went down over the hilltop chateau.
