Real Wedding Vow Renewal : Adirondack Love in North Creek, NY

When I heard that Tiffany Wayne Photography was going to be heading to North Creek to photograph a vow renewal at the Copperfield Inn - I knew I had to keep a close eye on her sneak peeks. You might remember I wrote a review of our wonderful stay at The Copperfield Inn and Resort back in October. Kristen and Ryan have actually been married for 5 years, but they never had a formal wedding. So after 5 years, they decided to go all out and renew their vows and have the wedding of their dreams. Isn't this just the sweetest? Their special day is beautiful and filled with lots of Adirondack touches as they both love the outdoors and camping. Oh, and don't you just love Kristen shorter wedding dress with the flower embellishments?

Kristen included so many wonderful items from Etsy in her wedding {including the bridal hanger, garter, and handmade jewelry} Do you notice the five beads on Kristen’s necklace? This symbolize the five years Kristen and Ryan have been married! And, since the wedding took place the day before July 4th, isn't the garter just perfect?

Loving this photo of Kristen as she looks out the window - it was raining, well pouring actually, right before the wedding. But, it stopped just in time for their outdoor ceremony held on the Kellogg Property.

The "Happily Ever After Starts Here" sign is such a cute way to direct your guests to the ceremony spot.

Kristen and Ryan had a tree planting ceremony to symbolize "Love Grows".

There was even a guest signing tree. Oh, and isn't the little terrarium with the mini animal inside cute?

There was even a "Mad Libs" game at each place setting.

Gotta love a cake that looks like a birch tree for an Adirondack themed affair :)

And, now for some amazing portraits of Kristen and Ryan - I love the lighting on the darker ones - so intriguing.

And, there you have it. A beautiful vow renewal - dream wedding. Such a wonderful concept.

Tiffany even put together a little video of Kristen and Ryan's special day that you can see here.
