Vow renewals at Vista Vows are incredibly special. Why? In a year full of negativity, they're a gleaming ray of something positive. Many of our couples credited wanting to celebrate something good as part of their decision to renew their vows. It gave them something wonderful to plan, look forward too, and enjoy together.
Vow renewals used to be saved for monumental anniversaries like 25 and 50 years, or if a couple overcame a very difficult time in their relationship. Modern vow renewals are much more flexible. Many couples opt to celebrate one year of marriage, becoming a family, or a renewed commitment to one another. So, there's never a bad time to do a vow renewal!
