Siesta Key Vow Renewal Wedding

June 2nd, 2017

Jimmy and Rhiannon


Siesta Key Beach, Florida


Rhiannon and Jimmy have been together for 12 years and married not to long ago (with three beautiful kids), but they felt it was time for a vow renewal and what better place than the gorgeous white sands of Siesta Key, Florida. They are based in Orlando, so drove across to the west coast for a few days together as a family and to reaffirm their commitment to each other. 

It was actually quite a stormy Siesta Key day with heavy clouds in the sky, but the light reflecting off the white sands illuminated their faces perfectly and created a really dramatic backdrop for this special family moment.

Siesta Key Vow Renewal Photos:

We began this Siesta Key elopement with some portraits of the kids – Sierra, Cameron and newly-born Caden – followed by a beautiful portrait of Rhiannon with her floral bouquet. We then captured her walking across the white sands towards Jimmy and their small wedding party of family and friends who had come to bear witness to this vow renewal.

The family performed a sand ceremony, mixing their grains of sand as one, and Jimmy made an emotional commitment to his step-daughter Sierra, asking her formally to be her father. We captured the reactions of Rhiannon throughout this intimate Siesta Key vow renewal ceremony, as well as a wide-angle shot looking across the spectacular setting, followed by the couple’s “first kiss”.

Portraits at Siesta Key:

After a playful group shot with their family and friends, we took some romantic couple portraits of Rhiannon and Jimmy walking hand-in-hand along the white sands. We also grabbed a whimsical shot of them together in the grassy fields behind the beach and a black and white of Rhiannon leading Jimmy along a path down to the water’s edge.

We also captured a few casual portraits of this united family walking along the beach together and a beautiful black and white of Rhiannon and Caden together (although we couldn’t get him to smile!)


It was a really wonderful afternoon spent with Rhiannon, Jimmy and their kids and we clicked immediately, with a lot in common between our two families. I want to thank them for selecting Fallbrook Photography for this Siesta Key, Florida wedding vow renewal and wish them lots of love and happiness in the years to come.
