I photographed what was technically a vow renewal. MiKayla and De got married two years ago with a family members right before De was deployed. These past few years, they've been beautifully planning their biggest party ever in celebration of the life they've shared together. From the very beginning, I have been looking forward to this day with these two know full well it'd be one of the most thought-out and emotional days!

Truthfully, their vows made me cry. They were beautiful, sincere, and so heartfelt. And knowing that those were the vows they chose to write to one another after two years of marriage was an incredible inspiration to Leighton and me. We listened to them promise *again* to love one another whole-heartedly. We saw the best groom reaction as he saw his *wife* dressed in white and walking toward him again and you could tell the joy he finds in her hasn't faded at all.

MiKayla and De, you throw one amazing party. And being able to celebrate with you was one of the biggest honors. :)
