I’m so excited and honored to share Jessie and Eric’s anniversary vow renewal with you guys – I hope I do it justice! Jessie and Eric are photographers here in Chicago, and I feel lucky to have gotten to know Jessie, Kelly from Fleur, Jaclyn, Jennifer, and Suzy from Lily Red Design this year! Jessie is an adorable person, inside and out, and the intimate anniversary shoot that this talented group of ladies put together is so special, I just know you are going to love it!
Jessie and Eric wanted to re-create a little bit of the magic from their wedding day 5 years ago. The group went to Michigan to celebrate, and Jessie and Eric renewed their original wedding vows on the beloved rug that was a wedding present from Jessie’s parents. Jessie’s bouquet, created by Kelly from Fleur and hand-tied with yarn, contained thistle (from the song that Jessie walked down the aisle to), cotton (from the Southern plantation where they were wed), and rosemary (to remember).
Suzy of Lily Red Design made paper treats, including a beautiful personal logo, a booklet of the wedding vows, and adorable chipboard menus.
