Instead of a unity candle or anything of that nature, a sweet friend (Natalie) had our vows framed and our wedding party signed around them. They, along with all of the friends and family who surrounded us, are the ones who will say the prayers to lift us up or we pray they will say the words to put us in our place if needed. Marriages are a lot of work and we need all the help we can get.
Despite the heat, there was a nice breeze during the ceremony (and some questionable clouds) that made it more bearable. Our arbor was put together the day before and that was an adventure =) All of our flowers during the ceremony were picked up that morning at the Farmers Market, I loved it.
I walked down the "isle" to Perfect by Jon McLaughlin and our friends Skyler and Chad performed Sailboats by Brooke Fraser. We exited the ceremony to ABC by Jackson 5, why? Because our monogram is ABC!!! (I bet 99.9% of the people there didn't even pick up on that)
Here are several pictures from the ceremony:
