Hearts are full after seeing the family candy jar ceremony at this Paris vow renewal

This was the vow renewal dream come true for Mehek and Lokesh who, seven years earlier, had a very traditional Indian wedding. They said they felt like they were living their own Bollywood dream by renewing their vows in Paris. You'll definitely want to see the bright pink details and a fabulously detailed bouquet. They toasted with rosé champagne and ate cake on the Champ de Mars after the ceremony.

The groom painted the dress at this abstract art-inspired vow renewal

Magdalena and Preston had an abstract art-inspired vow renewal on a rooftop in the Arts District of downtown LA. The inspiration for all of the wedding design (the dress, floral arrangements, invitation suite, tablescapes, and cake) was based on one of Preston's abstract paintings. Our favorite part? Preston hand-painted Magdalena's tea-length dress, too!

Come see this rainy day turn sunny just in time for their lovely rooftop vow renewal…

This bride altered her original wedding gown for her gorgeous vow renewal

My husband, Anindeep, and I came to our tenth wedding anniversary very much different people than we were so long ago, now personally and emotionally more enriched. We decided a vow renewal was necessary to celebrate ourselves in this new chapter in realizing our individual selves and expressing our togetherness more meaningfully to each other.

Photography (duh) and fashion are priorities for me, so with NO attire budget and exponentially growing dressmaking skills, I suddenly found the confidence to alter my own wedding gown.
