Married almost seven years, Stephanie and Brandon are in the midst of building the house of their dreams, literally. “I had this dream that our house was falling down hundreds of years from now and the new owners saw some writing behind the layers of paint,” says Stephanie. “As they started to peel back the layers, they saw our vows.” Stephanie shared the idea with Brandon, to write their wedding vows on their home before the walls were painted over, and he loved the idea, so the two donned their wedding attire and asked Ali Harper to photograph this sweet vow “renewal.” Says Stephanie, “I wanted to do this because the words that we spoke to one another on our wedding day were the most important words either of us will ever say in our entire lives. In the years since our wedding we have been through some difficult, emotional experiences with our families and the meaning of those words have only gotten stronger, as has our love. Each day I love my husband more than the day before. Building this house was a dream come true for us and it felt like the perfect opportunity to recommit ourselves to one another. Now when we go to bed our words will be there to remind us of our love and every morning we will begin another day in our journey through life together.”
