10 Things We Did Differently at Our Vow Renewal

10 Things We Did Differently at Our Vow Renewal

A vow renewal is one of the most beautiful events. It combines our favorite parts of weddings with a calm confidence that’s rarely present between nearlyweds. Couples who choose to renew their vows have been married for a year or longer, and it’s a day to reflect on their journey together. It’s not about the start of their marriage – it’s about the continued commitment to choose and love one another. Often, the couple has experienced a significant life change or milestone that makes them want to celebrate again, and in many cases, the vow renewal experience differs significantly from the original wedding day. After years of marriage, a couple renewing their vows has a better understanding of who they are as individuals and a couple, what marriage means to them, and how they prioritize experiences and finances.


How to Hire an Officiant You Vibe With

How to Hire an Officiant You Vibe With

We’re in love with wedding ceremonies. Many ElopeNC vendors would say the vows are our favorite part, and we wish more couples came into wedding planning excited about creating an amazing ceremony. Let’s talk about how to hire an officiant you vibe with. If you’re not sure why you should be excited about your ceremony, think about your love story… Look at your partner and the journey you’ve been on… Think about your favorite memories, hobbies, and dreams… Then think about all that “you-ness” being woven into a beautifully written story. If you’re not pumped yet, it’s time to have a date night, pronto.
