On June 23rd, 2018, 5 years to the day since they exchanged their wedding vows in Las Vegas, Nevada. Sean surprised his wife Kaylene with a once in a lifetime vow renewal and wedding celebration in front of all of their loved ones.
How creating a surprise wedding video all began …
I was excited from the moment I heard about this. A surprise wedding?! Who does that? We decided to meet up for coffee and I could immediately tell this wasn’t a fantasy; Sean had a plan. He had thought through every detail and was about pull off the surprise of a lifetime.
Sean and Kaylene had gotten married in Vegas on June 23rd, 2013. At the time the small elopement wedding was perfect for them, but over the years they had both longed to have had their family there and for all the traditional wedding events.
Fortunately for Kaylene, Sean was talking notes.
The plan was simple but perfect. Sean had coordinated with Erik and Marissa of Ciccarelli photography to convince Kaylene to do a “style shoot” with them. They drove her around all morning to get a wedding dress, makeup and jewelry all under the pretension that she was doing a styled photo shoot to help their photography business out.
Meanwhile Sean raced to gather up their 5 kids, their dress clothes, and everything else he had been hiding away for months. Then rushed to Craven Farm a rustic farm/wedding venue nestled in the shallow hills of Snohomish.
I had a blast talking with Sean and Kaylene’s children as everyone bustled around us to create the stage for this magical event. Eventually the ceremony was set and family and friends were in their seats waiting for the big moment arrive. Sean stood at the end of the aisle, bouquet in hand, waiting for his wife. You could tell from his expression that he was nervous. All those months of planning had led up to this moment. How would she react?
