Amelia and Beau were supposed to get married in May 2020 in the Poconos, but due to the pandemic they eloped on their original date in May, had their beautiful wedding in August, and in March they decided to have a vow renewal on the beach! Things didn’t go as planned for them, but each time they said “I do” it was beautiful!
This beautiful waterfront picnic served as their elopement. They put on their wedding attire and promised themselves to each other again at sunset. It was so beautiful and they also found out they were expecting a week before this shoot! So it make it even more special and amazing!
How did you meet?
We met at the beach! He walked up to me and asked if he could take a picture of me. I was flattered and said yes! The rest is history.
What is your proposal story?
He invited me to his sisters house for brunch and prepared a beautiful setup with flowers and champagne at the rooftop of her NYC apartment!
Tell us a little a bit about your wedding.
For our vow renewal, we wanted something boho and romantic at the beach. So we decided on a small picnic!
Tell us about your attire choices.
We re-wore our original wedding attire to celebrate the occasion. We plan on continuing the tradition every year!
What was the most important to the two of you while planning? Was there anything that you chose to splurge on or skip?
We decided to splurge on flowers, but skip all the properness of a traditional wedding, just focus on us 2!
What were your favorite parts of the day?
Our favorite part was feeding each other cheese! A cute moment, instead of traditional cake! And of course that sunset!
Tell us about your wedding flowers.
Boho, orange and peaches. And lots of pampas grass!
Please describe any DIY, handmade, or personal details.
We mostly thrifted for our decor, as well as reusing items from family members.
Did you include any family heirlooms or special traditions?
Yes, some antique champagne glasses!
Do you have any advice for couples planning their weddings now?
Do what your heart tells you to do, and dont feel pressured to make your wedding a certain way. Its all about you 2!
