Move over, Valentines, there's a new love holiday in town.
Nashville Marriage Studio and Modern Vintage are joining forces for the first annual Vowentines celebration. On February 16th at 5:oo P.M. we will celebrate the vows we made on our wedding day.
It doesn't matter how long ago you made your vows.
It doesn't matter if you've done an awesome job keeping your vows.
It doesn't matter if you've screwed your vows up once or twice.
We simply want to celebrate the kind of love that is so much more than chocolate candy and flowers because, well, this kind of love deserves to be celebrated. When we got married we signed up to fight it out when most people would just walk away. When we mad our vows we voluntarily took away our option to walk away. That's a pretty special kind of love if you ask me!
What happens on Vowentines?
So glad you asked!
We're basically throwing a mini-wedding without the huge budget, the stress over a guest list, or the photobooth. It's a wedding stripped down to the bare essentials:
- Exchanging Vows
- Celebrating with Champagne & Cake
- Photos of the Lovely Couple
- Reignite the Love between the Lovely Couple
Then I (Marie with Nashville Marriage Studio) will lead you through a marriage enrichment activity of re-writing your vows. We'll talk about your story: what you've accomplished, how you've grown, how you've treated your vows in the past, and how you want those vows you've made to be renewed and revived in 2013. We'll look at your vows with new eyes now that you've walked a couple of miles in your marriage journey.
After we rewrite the vows you'll exchange them. You'll look at each other and say these vows outloud to one another, just like you did on the wedding day. One difference: There is no public speaking at this event. None. At all. I hate speaking in front of strangers and I refuse to make you do this. So if you (hello, husband) are not down because you think we're going to make you share your deepest thoughts and feelings in front of strangers then no worries.
Then we celebrate!
We'll eat some legitimate & delicious wedding cake from Jo's Custom Cakes & Catering. We'll pop some bubbly and toast the awesomness that is commitment. We'll take some photos to capture the love and commitment one more time.
Then we'll dismiss and you guys can go grab dinner some where downtown and keep the romantic juices flowing. If you sign up for the package with a room (oohlala) then, well, you know what to do...
