We don’t share too many vow renewals with y’all, but we couldn’t resist this one. A wedding, after all, is about celebrating the life you live together and the life that lies ahead of you. For Adis + Victor, the family they created and the love they’ve shared for thirty years made crafting a vow renewal look effortless and full.

“Having our four children there to witness the love we share for one another was pretty amazing,” said Adis. She married Victor thirty years ago, after being introduced to him over the phone. Though they had never met in person, they talked every day for two years. As soon as they met, they instantly became boyfriend and girlfriend and were married just a year after. Their vow renewal, photographed by Diana Marie Photography brings to mind a dozen things I think we all hope for in our marriages, like joy, a youthful spirit, mutual admiration and a big, happy family.

I can’t get over how beautiful this family is! I love Adis’s summery white dress, too. The hints of lace are the perfect amount for an outdoor vow renewal, no?

Describe the proposal: It was at a restaurant and I was wearing a white dress, ironically. As he was nervously about to pop the question, he accidentally spilled his wine glass all over me. We both laughed it off and I immediately said yes.

What do you love most about each other? (From Adis) I love how he keeps me grounded and puts things into perspective; to not sweat the small stuff. (From Victor) I love how she has such a young spirit about her and a contagious laugh.

What have you learned over your years of marriage? Learning to compromise and choosing your battles. And learning to not have arguments but to have productive discussions.

Tell us about finding your wedding dress: I knew the type of dress I wanted: something comfortable and knee length. I had a family friend make the dress so it was exactly what I wanted.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? Knowing that we were marrying the person we felt that we were meant to be with.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your renewal? The biggest challenge was staying in budget.
What is the one thing you are most happy you splurged on? We had 3 different musical acts that we splurged on. Music and dancing are very important to our family.
What advice do you have for folks currently planning a wedding? Learn to enjoy the planning along the way and try not to get over stressed. Remember why you are having a wedding in the first place.
