The majestic Waipio Valley in Hawaii proved the perfect romantic and intimate location for Vanessa and Adrian to celebrate ten years of marriage. REBECCA ARTHURS spent the day with this gorgeous couple who chose to include their adorable children in the special celebration. The rainy and fog added to the beauty of the day and ensured they got the most incredibly beautiful moody photos to remember their day by.
From the Bride: “I always knew that when ten years of marriage came along it would be a milestone to celebrate. A magical moment for the both of us. We both knew we wanted an intimate affair. Something completely different than our wedding. We decided to plan a destination vow-renewal. For some reason, we always knew it would be in Hawaii. The Big Island seemed like the perfect majestic place. Ten years ago all we knew is that we were in love and nothing else mattered as long as we were committed to each other. Little did we know how important that commitment would be when you are going through unexpected and difficult trying moments. Our gift to ourselves was a family vacation that would include our vow-renewal and our children as witnesses. Our simple celebration was just grand in the eyes of our children. Moments that make it all worth it. It was not an easy feat to not include our immediate family and close friends. They have been supportive through the fourteen years of our relationship. Yet, it was comforting to know they were mainly just happy for us.
I fall in love a bit more with Adrian when I see him interact with our kids. My two children were truly our guests of honor. The second time around felt just as special if not more than that first time. Having my children there was the ultimate representation of our love.”
