Mindy + Pete | Scottsdale Arizona Vow Renewal

This is Mindy + Pete.  They contacted me a few months ago to capture some memories of them before their vow renewal.  They had just returned from an amazing anniversary trip in Paris and were rededicating their marriage with a 10 year vow renewal.  Mindy found a gorgeous BCBG dress and Pete dressed in his best suit...and together, with their daughter Kate, they celebrated their marriage with their closest friends and family!! I was honored to be asked to capture their family before their ceremony.  It was a toasty 110 degree evening in the Scottsdale Arizona desert, but they still did amazing! Mindy and Pete, I wish you the best in your marriage and it was a JOY to work with your family!! I am looking forward to the next vow renewal! 

I asked Mindy to tell me a little of their love story.  I absolutely love hearing about how God brings couples together, especially in the most unexpected circumstances! 

Pete and I met in 2001 at the opening of Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain. We were both working there. We were friends for a while but then realized there was more there. We started dating in 2003 and were married in May 2006. We both share the same dry sense of humor and the love for travel. Kate was born in October of 2007 and she has been more than any parent could have hoped for. She's absolutely lovely and we get a kick out her charm and silliness every day. We are three peas in a pod. We just celebrated 10 years of marriage and celebrated in England, Ireland and France. When we returned home, we had a vow renewal ceremony in our church and then a nice dinner at elements (where we met - sanctuary on camelback mountain) with 20 close family and friends. Life has never been more full. 💗
