Forever & Ever: A Soulful Vow Renewal in the Poconos

The duo behind M2 Photography (Michael + Melissa) did a really great thing: they created an inclusive photoshoot giveaway in Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains for one lucky couple! Kailer + Matt were the beneficiaries of the dreamiest day, complete with design by Belovely, hair + makeup, food, and a deeply intimate renewal of their vows.

Michael + Melissa told us: We wanted to create a relaxing atmosphere for Kailer + Matt’s vow renewal with colorful and happy decor. They stood in a floral circle during their ceremony, almost in the sense of an aura to shield them from any negativity. We wanted to create a space of for love and joy.

Let’s have a look at the photos from M2 Photography!

The Couple

Aren’t they a gorgeous couple??

Belovely designed some killer florals for K + M, bringing in a cheery tropical vibe to the day.

So dreamy!! True Beauty Marks treated Kailer to hair and makeup to highlight her sweet smile!

1: LOVE his shirt! 2: Are you kidding us with that backdrop?! Amazing!

Vow Renewal in the Mountains

The most memorable part was when we said our vows. Our original wedding was overshadowed by tragedy and I could not speak from my heart. When we won this vow renewal I was extremely excited to say my vows and eager to share what I’d been feeling about my husband for a little over a year. Saying my vows meant so much because of how my love has grown for him. I had time to actually examine my heart and walk that journey alongside my husband. Verbalizing my vows and meaning them had such a profound effect in our marriage.

Totally surrounded by love + beauty.

Fox and Finch Vintage Rentals provided all the furniture for this day—such a perfect lounge setting!

Love that greenery piece over the table!

Kailer looked stunning in the Odyssey gown by Lovers Society from Lovely Bride!

That smile again!! Love this and how it all came together!
