Our Wedding: Ceremony & Wedding Party

Tuesday, July 2, 2016

Tomorrow we will officially have been married a month, and today I’m sharing my favorite part of our wedding day: our ceremony. I get a little misty thinking about it – it was such an emotional half hour. When we were planning our wedding, we really had to be mindful about putting as much work into the ceremony as we were putting into the welcome picnic and reception. After all, the ceremony is the whole point of the weekend! Luckily, we had an incredible officiant to guide us, Pat Werk from Koru Ceremony. Pat gave us tons of options for the ceremony, from readings to vows to opening words to benedictions. We picked out every word of our ceremony, so it was perfectly tailored to us and how we wanted to start our marriage.

We opted to have a “techless” ceremony (taking a page from a few friends’ books and a few photographer horror stories), and I think it helped our guests to feel more present in the ceremony. We also wrote our own vows (with help from some online resources), which now I want to post all over our house because I love them so much. Those little personal touches are what make me want to go relive our ceremony over and over again. It’s such a strange feeling, standing up in front of everyone you love to make a huge commitment to your partner. What’s even more strange though is how everyone else seemed to melt away throughout the ceremony – George and I were so focused on each other. An amazing feeling.
