On July 31, 2011, Bonnie and Wayne gathered with family and friends at The Boathouse at Rocketts Landing in Richmond, VA to renew their wedding vows after forty years of marriage. Forty years! Bonnie and Wayne easily fall into that rare group of people who exude nothing both bright positivity and happiness; their energy is incredibly infectious. The event was organized and styled by Honey of Honeydew Events. Fluffy hydrangeas, and blue-green hues. Simply beautiful. To all of you brides out there looking for a planner, working with Honey was a dream. Snatch her up while you can! Oh - and wait till you lay eyes on the confection creation by Jana's Cakes - which was topped with a favorite of Wayne's, Boston Creme Pie.
After 40 years of marriage, Wayne has ended up with a total of 3 wedding bands. The original is on the bottom and you can see the little nick that adds so much character.
Bonnie and Wayne are the hallmark of what marriage should look like, sound like, and feel like after decades of sticking together through all of the many twists and turns that life throws in our direction. An evening full of laughter, smiles, family, friends, and commitment - Happy 40th Anniversary, Bonnie & Wayne. Thank you so much for allowing me the honor of documenting your commitment to one another.
