Rekindling Love and Cherishing Moments: A Vow Renewal at Roan Mountain, Tennessee

As a Tennessee and North Carolina wedding and elopement photographer, I have had the privilege of capturing countless love stories in breathtaking locations. However, one place holds a special spot in my heart for its unmatched beauty and tranquility: Roan Mountain.

If you are looking for a place to elope in North Carolina or Tennessee this is one of my all time favorites. But THIS TIME it wasn’t an elopement that brought me to the Tennessee Highlands…

It was a vow renewal.

A vow renewal goes even further than the celebration of a marriage anniversary; it is an opportunity for a couple to reaffirm their love and commitment. AND it allows them to reflect on their journey together, appreciate the obstacles they have overcome, and embrace the growth they have experienced as a couple.

It’s time intentionally created for one another. That’s important!

This is exactly what Ashley & Corey did.

The Significance of a Vow Renewal: Life moves fast, so it’s easy to lose sight of the promises made to on our wedding days. Most of my wedding couples tell me they barely remember much of their day because of how rush and packed it was! (which is fair)

A vow renewal allows couples to come back together, dress back up in wedding clothes, and pause, reflect, and reaffirm their commitment to one another. It serves as a poignant reminder of the love and devotion that carried them through their journey and those that will accompany them on the road ahead.

It’s a chance to slow down and run away for a moment to the beautiful wild.

Roan Mountain’s Timeless Beauty: Roan Mountain, nestled between the border of Tennessee and North Carolina, is a hidden gem that boasts an otherworldly allure. Its rolling hills, expansive meadows, and majestic forests create a breathtaking backdrop for any occasion. The mountain’s ever-changing colors, from vibrant wildflowers in spring to a mosaic of fiery hues in autumn, offer a captivating canvas for love to be celebrated and rekindled. The mountain’s mist-shrouded peaks and dramatic cloud formations add an ethereal touch to the surroundings, providing an enchanting setting for an intimate ceremony. (which was a dream come true for this vow renewal!)

With its ethereal beauty, Roan offers the perfect setting for such an intimate and heartfelt event. As a wedding and elopement photographer, I am grateful to be part of these moments in places as remarkable as what you will see in these images. Roan Mountain and its captivating landscapes serve as a testament to the power of love and the beauty that can be found when two souls choose to say “I do” once again.

P.S. Ashley chose to change her dress for the “post sunset” pictures and I was ALL about that!
