Deanna + Keaton Part 1

Surprise Vow renewal at WillowField Lavender farm in Mooresville, Indiana. 

Sometimes life hits us with the unexpected. When Deanna and Keaton were planning their wedding they were hit with the devastating news that Deanna’s mother, Bronda, was diagnosed with cancer. That was when Deanna’s Maid of Honor Julie stepped in. She came up with the idea of doing a surprise vow renewal during Deanna and Keaton’s rehearsal. Jim, Bronda’s husband was thrilled with the idea and quickly went out and purchased a very special ring. The day of the rehearsal Deanna told Bronda that they will be doing family portraits at the rehearsal so that she wouldn’t catch on to the surprise. It started to rain just as everyone arrived, so we all took shelter under an overhang. It was a small space that forced everyone into close quarters. It made for one of the most intimate moments we’ve ever experienced and had the honor of capturing. Jim got down on one knee and the emotions overflowed from all of their family and close friends who witnessed.  


“With the help of the officiant, florist, family, friends and photographers, these special moments were captured. These photos are a testament to love, courage and happiness that our family will cherish forever. Being able to witness the love they share and the awe in our mother’s face gave the wedding weekend more magic than we could have imagined”.  -Deanna
