The Geneva Inn | Lake Geneva, WI | Lifestyle Anniversary Photography | Alicia + Jeff

Happy 2020! Kicking off the new year by sharing this sweet vow renewal I photographed over Labor Day Weekend! Alicia and Jeff got married at The Geneva Inn on Lake Geneva in 2014. Alicia contacted me about surprising Jeff with a little vow renewal before their 5-year anniversary dinner and it was so special to pay witness to them renewing their commitment and love for each other.

They said, "Okay, we're gonna get kinda corny now," and I gave them some space so their vow renewal could really feel intimate, like it was just the two of them in the entire world. Watching them and the way they looked into each others eyes, smiled, and spoke so softly so that only the other person could hear them, reminded me of a little bit of magic and why these moments deserve to be documented in the first place.

We also encountered another couple meandering down the pier at the same time we taking photos that were reminiscing about their 11-year anniversary! It was such a bright spot of serendipity to meet another couple with the same anniversary as them, that got married at the same venue. As a wedding photographer, I told them how special it was and how nice it was to share a moment with them.
