Vow Renewals on the Coastal Shores of Point Reyes, California

From a spark, ignited a bud, from a bud grew a flower, from a flower came a garden. Melisa and Laif fell in love and a few years after marriage, they added another love to their lives. With their focus now turned to nurturing and loving their beautiful son, Oliver, they decided to pause for a moment to rediscover the harbors of their love by renewing their vows at Point Reyes National Seashore.

Along the Northern Pacific Coastline lies some of California’s finest earthly elements: strong boulders, wispy grasses, fragrant flowers, a light breeze, and tall curvy trees all shadowed by rugged, green cliffs and whispers of the ocean tides. These natural features align with the couple’s care for the Earth and their care for one another. The couple chose to have pieces of their original vows professionally hand-written by TSE Calligraphy on plantable wildflower seed paper.

Together the happiness in their life continues to grow.
