Every once in a while, we vendors get a wild idea to organize a styled photo shoot that is usually for the purpose of showing off our talents and having fun. This time, however, Jackie from Vintage on Macon (and a host of other vendors) organized the most amazing photo shoot with a very special story.
I have been waiting to share this photo shoot with you guys for a while now, but felt like October would be the perfect time to do so. Why October, you ask? Well, that’s because beautiful Kasi is a breast cancer survivor and October is breast cancer awareness month. What a perfect time to celebrate a story of survival. Her story is one that will bring you to tears and make you rejoice all at the same time. She and her husband Jamey share a love story that is worth celebrating and a vow renewal photo shoot was the perfect way to do so.
What you’re about to see is a labor of love and a work of heart from some of Huntsville’s most amazing wedding vendors, but it is so much more than that. It is a celebration of life, love and miracles. It is a celebration of overcoming the grief and pain that cancer leaves behind and coming through that journey with a stronger, deeper, more passionate love. It’s a celebration of a love that lived up to its “in sickness and in health” promise. Most importantly it’s a celebration of a family, who despite the unfair hand they were dealt, have emerged from trials still united.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you A Celebration of Life: A Vow ReNEWal Photo Shoot:
