In an intimate twilight ceremony in the heart of Banff National Park, Vanessa and PJ renewed their vows. The two expressed their ongoing love for one another after over a decade of marriage. They did so, in the presence of their two beautiful children, their parents and a few close friends.
Vanessa and PJ returned from their honeymoon to discover that sadly their wedding photographer had shut down and left town with the film. Their lone framed photo of their wedding day was snapped by a friend. After their Banff Vow Renewal ceremony, Vanessa and PJ have made some new memories. This time, the lovely Jennie Guenard has captured these beautiful images for them.
The inspiration behind everything from Vanessa’s stunning Elizabeth Dye gown to the watercolour vow renewal booklets and even their cake was inspired by the pretty colours in their mountain backdrop and the way it looked like a watercolour painting at twilight. I hope you all love these photos as much as we do!
Tamara of Bake My Day created this gorgeous mountain cutting cake. The mountains match Vanessa + PJ’s blue and grey colour scheme and watercolour theme. Yes, she made that beautiful flower too and it’s edible!
Isn’t Vanessa breathtaking? (and how about that gown?!) Vanessa wore the Elizabeth Dye Halo Gown in glacier and ivory.
What an incredible honor it was to be a part of planning your special day Vanessa and PJ. Your Vow Renewal ceremony was so beautiful, and your family is lovely! We’re so happy that you now have some photographs to hang on your walls. Yours is a love for the ages!
