As wedding photographers, Cody and Tiffany of Hunter Ryan Photo know the joy it brings couples to have gorgeous pictures of their weddings to treasure for years to come. These two also know that their own wedding photos are a bit “lackluster” for their taste. So when their seventh anniversary rolled around earlier this year, Tiffany and Cody, more deeply in love than ever, decided to have a “do over,” or in other words, a vow renewal! Italy was the theme, and, with the help of many of their creative industry friends, the pair’s beautiful vision was brought to life right in Fort Myers, Florida. The day of romance was captured by Zee Anna Photography, a wedding photographer based out of Naples, and NikkiMayDay Photography, and Tiffany and Cody looked positively stunning on the other side of the camera! Tiffany wore a dramatic Cymbeline gown, rich burgundy heels adding a pop of color. With no guests — just the officiant and photographers — the couple, beaming smiles on their faces, exchanged words of love and of the joy they share in their marriage. Following was a small meal for two, lots of fun picture taking, and an exciting getaway on the pair’s own vintage Vespa!
Was there a specific theme or style? What inspired it?
Italy. Kehrin, our friend and planner, had full reign on design and ideas. We know and trust her and told her make it awesome! She did.
Tell us a little about the event.
It just revolved around us — not in a selfish way — but totally unlike our wedding 7 years ago. We had zero guests. We didn’t have regular vows, but instead wrote love notes to one another on what marriage really means to us now and how thankful we are for each other.
Tell us about the food and desserts.
We had a simple cheese/antipasto platter to share and Italian wedding cake.
What was the most memorable moment?
Well honestly it was being on the OTHER side of the camera for a change. Being photographers, photos are so important to us, so it was having fun in the process of our photographs. Seeing it all from the clients side — and we have amazing photos from that day!
What were your playful twists that made the event unique?
Having fun — being us! I really wanted to incorporate our Vespa for our getaway vehicle.
