Nope, it wasn't The Memet and I who renewed our vows (Although I wish we could afford to do so every 5 years. Haha!). It was The Memet's parents who did, as it was their 40th wedding anniversary. It was our idea though. We didn't want to wait for their 50th wedding anniversary, because... Well, who knows what could happen in another 10 years?
I did the wedding planning because at that time, I was the only one who could. They agreed to our idea in February of 2013. The wedding was to happen in April of the same year. So, I had roughly 2 months to plan a 40th wedding anniversary / wedding / renewal of vows. There were only around 60 guests, so the intimacy of the event helped a lot.
Let's go through a quick run down of the suppliers that I found in less than 2 months. Photos below are courtesy of Charles and Mitch. I can't give you their website or contact numbers, because they had a falling out. They're no longer in business...
Anyway. Here we go.
