Golden Hour Vow Renewal at Fort Worth’s Stem and Light

That golden hour glow and an in-love couple, what more could you ask for? This intimate vow renewal is the epitome of sun-drenched romance. Complete with a gorgeous lace wedding dress, off-white flowers with a touch of blue and a simple, yet stunning greenhouse, stay a while and get inspired, why don’t you?

Stem and Light: A small & stunning event venue

Let’s pause for a moment to talk about this gorgeous event space in Fort Worth. Stem and Light has this remarkable ability to be anything you want. With its all-white walls, wooden floors and secluded location, it’s ideal for weddings and brand shoots alike. We for one, couldn’t get enough of the greenhouse and the way the light reflected just perfectly, creating a mini ceremony space of its own.

From college newlyweds in the mountains to a vow renewal in Texas

Lauren and Gwyn, the couple to celebrate, had a simple wedding when they got married in college. So, they decided, 5 years in, to redo things, their way. As you can tell, Richard and I were honored to help!

The any-season aesthetic

Living in Texas, we don’t quite have a fall, winter or spring color palette. But year-round, you can count on those golden tones. So, when helping Lauren and Gwyn plan this vow renewal, we opted for a sleek, timeless look. It could have been spring, but we actually took these photos in December if you can believe it!

To start, Lauren went for a lace gown. It was a breath of fresh air from the satin gown she wore when they first got married. Gwyn actually wore the same gray suit from their wedding five years ago!

Moreover, the flowers, which were also a show-stopper for the day, featured gorgeous blooms with a hint of purple and blue, plus greenery to add a finishing touch.

Handmade invitations

A fun nod to Michelle’s background in stationery, we even helped them curate invitations!

French romanticism

Although Gwyn is German/British and Lauren is an east coast girl, this vow renewal was certainly filled with French romanticism. European, soft and relaxed.
