I can't believe it's been FIVE whole years since I photographed Jusin + Liz's awesome wedding day!! Holy Smokes! For their five year anniversary, these two decided to do a simple, yet meaningful, private vow renewal! This evening encapsulated the beauty of real life love & marriage. Justin wrote and sang his bride of 5 years a tear-jerking love song, followed by the exchanging of vows, cake & champagne...Everything was perfect....then the clouds opened up and the rain began to pour down on us! What started as a well planned and lovely vow renewal turned into high winds and tornado sirens! Some couples would have sadly packed up and ran for shelter disappointed and discouraged...but these two embraced the storm! We shot through the mess and caught some beautiful moments as these to laughed and held eachother close as they became more and more drenched! Marriage is hard, but there is beauty in the mess when you can find joy in the storms that life throws at you. Sending you love, Justin + Liz! I have no doubt that you two are in it for the long haul, and it was so beautiful witnessing your love, friendship, and commitment to partnership! Thanks for the adventure! - Atley
