Love is a beautiful thing. Tia Mowry celebrated her five year marriage to Cory Hardrict with a vow renewal ceremony in Malibu. Surrounded by an intimate group of 20 friends and family members, the actors re-commited themselves to each other after 13 years together and the birth of their beautiful son.
Tia posted this on her blog:
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.
With all the negative press surrounding black love, black women in relationships and the black family unit, it’s beautiful to see a couple making marriage work and raising their child together.
Congratulations to Cory Hardrict and Tia Mowry-Hardrict!
