The best part of this entire experience with Hans and Nicole is knowing how it all started…and that’s with an email from Hans telling me that Nicole knew nothing about this day he was planning! Nicole is this woman who is radiates warmth, kindness and joy and it’s no wonder Hans after fifteen years together wanted to surprise her with this vow renewal while vacationing here on the Outer Banks. They take this trip yearly and Hatteras is their place, so many memories have been made here and it was the natural choice for a location to celebrate their love, having FOUR beautiful sons and one heck of a love story.
Being a mom, I see Nicole with four boys and think to myself immediately, that woman is amazing. She didn’t even have to say or do anything for me to know…I just knew. Hans knows he has this incredible partner to walk through life with and he loves her so clearly that it just inspires you to want to hug your person a little tighter that night. I think my favorite thing about a vow renewal is that the little ones get to be involved and these AWESOME boys Aiden, Noah, Oliver and Jonah…they were so good! They were good the whole time and they had fun laughing for the camera, at each other and sometimes just right at me hahahaha! Seriously..what a day. I will never forget how wonderful this event was and how much I knew Nicole and Hans were one of those golden couples I needed to remember and strive to be with my husband as the years of marriage go on! CONGRATS you two!!! <3
