After five years of marital bliss, Tia Mowry and husband Cory Hardrict decided to renew their vows in an intimate, beachside ceremony in Malibu, Calif. last weekend.
As we reported earlier, Tia said her 21-month-old son Cree was the “motivation and inspiration” for the happy occasion.
“Cory and I have been together for 13 years and married for five. However, we now have this new miracle in our lives,” she said, “and I wanted to celebrate our love, and what our love together created — Cree!”
Today, the Hollywood actress gave her website members an exclusive look at the images from the ceremony. She also left a sweet message:
Last Saturday, Cory and I renewed our vows on a beachfront in Malibu, California. We’ve been together for 13 years and married for 5 (our 5th anniversary is coming up on the 20th!). We decided to renew our vows as a way to strengthen the sacred promise we made to each other when we got married 5 years ago. I think it’s so important to do that! Whether it’s having a special ceremony like we had, or just small things like surprise flowers after work or a handwritten love note, it’s these things that keep a relationship fresh and bond strong. Cree was actually my motivation and inspiration to renew our vows this year. Cory and I have this new miracle in our lives now and I wanted to celebrate our love, and what our love together created – our precious son! I was so excited to have my little man be a part of this special moment. We kept it small and intimate, with only about 20 guests – of course, Tamera, Adam and Aden were attendance and I was so happy that my sissy and her family were there to celebrate with me.
I wanted my website members to get the exclusive first look at some of the pictures taken from that day because you are all amazing and I love sharing my life with you here on my blog! Our photographer was the fabulous Elizabeth Messina – she’s fantastic and I think she did a beautiful job capturing the tender and intimate mood of the ceremony.
Congrats, again, to the happy couple!
