UncategorizedOur Wedding Ceremony May 18, 2011Weddings are everywhere you turn today: magazines, reality shows, you name it. But, the reception has become the focus for a lot of what you see. When the time came to plan our wedding, we wanted to put just as much focus on the ceremony. After all, that was the reason to throw a party anyway: the marriage. So, here’s a little bit on our ceremony. We got married at a Vineyard on the lake, so we went with a rustic Vineyard theme, which is very “us”. For our wedding program, I wanted to do something a little different. With me being a writer, I turned our program into a book, of sorts. Each Chapter told a piece of our story and then we named each table after a Chapter name. So, the program served two purposes. It told our love story, while also serving as table assignments. I had thought about the moment I would walk down the aisle for so long, but nothing could have prepared me for how it would actually feel to start down the aisle with my groom waiting at the end. As a surprise, I had Chris’ wedding band engraved with “A Cord of Three – Ecclesiastes 4:12”. This was our wedding verse and serves as a constant reminder of how much stronger our marriage is with Christ at the head of it. It was a wonderful day that I will never forget. We celebrated afterwards with a great party. More on our reception to come!
