One of my favorite unity celebrations during a wedding is the Love Letter Ceremony.
Explaining it briefly, the couple writes love notes to each other the night before the wedding ... then during the ceremony, as I am saying a few words about the meaning and significance of this moment, the couple places a bottle wine or champagne into a time capsule box along with their their letters. Today, Stephanie and Ryan added the nice touch of nailing the box shut.
A year from today, Stephanie and Ryan will enjoy the wine and will read their letters as they reflect on the beauty of today's absolutely perfect wedding celebration.
Enjoy your 'happily ever after' Stephanie and Ryan!
