Henry Cowell Redwoods Ten Year Vow Renewal – Billy&Tristin

We had the honor of photographing Billy&Tristin’s ten-year vow renewal in one of the most beautiful locations on earth. 30 of their closest friends and family all traveled from Nevada to California to witness Billy&Tristin recite their vows in a peaceful spot surrounded by gorgeous Redwood Trees.

Stephen and I walked away from this amazing day feeling so honored and encouraged! I’ve had a hard time putting into words the immense joy it was for Stephen and I to witness such a beautiful ceremony. We always feel during a wedding ceremony the weight of the vows our couples commit to. For Billy&Tristin they have already been married for ten years and have two beautiful children. This was their way of experiencing a wedding that they had always dreamed of and re-committing themselves to God, each other and their amazing little family.

Billy&Tristin met in 7th grade. Tristin shared that after they started dating in 9th grade she knew pretty quickly that she was going to marry Billy. They eloped when they were both 19 and this March on their ten year anniversary, they recommitted themselves to each other. Both Stephen and I have so much respect for these two. We normally witness couples as they first commit themselves to each other as husband and wife, but it’s so inspiring to see a couple with ten years under their belt and two amazing children who still are putting God first and their marriage. Stephen and I talk a lot about marriage on the blog because we really want to inspire others that even on the hard days remember why they chose each other. Marriage isn’t always easy or like a fairy-tale story but it’s worth fighting for one another and loving each other unconditionally through it all. We saw that powerful love displayed through Billy&Tristin!

Billy&Tristin are from Las Vegas and so were almost all of their guests. Tristin has always loved the Redwoods and so after contacting us, we suggested they look into Henry Cowell State Park near Santa Cruz. They went out and visited a year before and instantly fell in love with the location. Throughout the year, we have been following these two over social media. We’ve gotten to follow along with their adventures and see what their two kids were up to. Billy&Tristin have been so encouraging to us and really stressed how much they were excited for portrait time together! They let us schedule in extra time for photos and video around the park and we are so thankful for couples like them who are okay with this!

We arrived in the morning while Tristin was finishing getting ready with her good friends and super cute daughter Tatum. Tristin described Tatum as her little “mini-me” and Bladen their son as Billy’s, and that could not be truer! After finishing getting ready, the couple opted to do a first look in the redwoods and afterwards we walked around Henry Cowell to the specific spot the couple would share their vows. After their ceremony, we took some family photos and then ended in a meadow just outside the park!

Billy&Tristin, you two have been so warm and kind to us! You have been an example of what it looks like to love your kids and the others around you well. There are no words for how honored we feel to have captured and witnessed such a beautiful vow renewal between you two and your family! Always fight for each other and never stop going on lots of photo adventures!

Enjoy some of our favorites from their day!
