Charleston Vow Renewal – Tanis and Chauncey
We offer Charleston vow renewal services as well as Charleston wedding planning services. Some people don’t think Charleston vow renewals are as serious as a wedding because a couple is already legally married so let me tell you our story!
The story of Tanis & Chauncey’s Charleston Vow Renewal
I came to the US on a K-1 Visa, which requires you to get married or get out within 90 days. They recommend you don’t do any wedding planning in advance in case there are issues with immigration. 90 days isn’t a lot of time to plan a wedding and when you’ve just moved to a new county, have a to do list a page long, a wedding is not even half way up that to do list.
Six days after I arrived, we had our Charleston wedding ceremony with just the two of us and a very nice officiant. We rented a limo and drove around for an hour or so taking pictures. Then it came time to call my mom and I just bawled “Mom I just got maaaarrieed and you weren’t there”. I was happy to be married but doing so without my family was very, very hard and I couldn’t wait until our Charleston Vow Renewal
Fast forward a year my family travelled all the way from Canada and Chauncey’s family travelled all the way from Louisiana for our Charleston Vow Renewal which we preferred to call our “family wedding”. They were also meeting for the first time so to us this was a big deal!
When it was time for the ceremony it was just as emotional as it would have been if it was the legal ceremony. We had the same lovely officiant who was very excited to join us again but this time with our families. There were tears during the ceremony and during the reception when I thanked everyone for travelling so far for “the wedding”, well I just about lost it and so did they.

If you are having a Charleston vow renewal, whether it’s due to marrying early for deployment, family emergency or because the first wedding just wasn’t what you wanted it to be, we completely understand and will treat this “Big Day” with the same respect we treat a legal wedding!
