Jordan is a talented photographer based out of Lakeland. Although our paths didn’t cross often while we both lived in the same state, I always admired her work and we shared a mutual love for mountains and film. When she saw that Thomas and I were moving out to California, she reached out about her and Jason’s vow renewal, as they were going to be in Oregon in July. Jordan and Jason have been married fifteen years – what a milestone! Their wedding fifteen years ago was simple. They wanted to do a vow renewal at Smith Rock State Park to celebrate the beautiful relationship they’ve built together. Of course, they had the opportunity to include their daughter, Autumn, in the festivities as well!

Thomas and I drove up to Bend, Oregon to meet Jordan, Jason, and Autumn at Smith Rock State Park. It was a warm day (above 90 degrees) but I think that just gave us more privacy at the park – hardly anyone was there! We arrived a few hours before sunset and Jordan was already in her beautiful BHLDN gown. I love how the skirt flowed with the wind – and the lace topper with the buttons on the back was just perfect! She carried an organic bouquet complete with blueberries, Juliette roses, hellebore, eucalyptus, and a silk blue ribbon wrapping it all together. Jason wore a navy vest and a crisp white shirt. His monk strap shoes were the perfect choice to complete the look!

Autumn was so sweet! I adored her loose curls and freckles. Throughout our time at the park she would carry Jordan’s dress, run ahead of us, or give impromptu hugs. Jordan and Jason gifted her a simple three-stone necklace with their birthstones as a memory of this special day.

Jason and Jordan exchanged vows down by the water. After fifteen years, they couldn’t remember much of their initial vows, but I love that they took the time to craft meaningful promises to each other. Words to show how far they’ve come, and how far they’ll continue to go in the future. Of course, I had to ask for some advice to build a strong marriage. Their tip to us was open communication.

Jason and Jordan, congratulations to you both! I’m so honored that Thomas and I were able to play a small part in your story. You two have set the bar high! Your vow renewal was a day that I’ll cherish for years. Thank you so much!
