A Renewal

In the last couple weeks I had 2 very different intimate events to plan. Last Sunday I did a vow renewal for Becky & Marc. It was just the sweetest thing ever. Becky & Marc privately renewed their vows at sunset on Bowditch beach during a weekend getaway to Ft Myers Beach. Becky walked down the natural sand aisle carrying a bouquet made from flowers she had saved from their wedding 6 years ago.

After exchanging their vows, they took part in a Sand Ceremony. A Sand Ceremony is very much like the lighting if the unity candle (which does not work out on the beach!). The bride and groom each pour individual cylinders of colored sand into a larger cylinder to create a vase of unity. Many brides and grooms choose to include their parents in the ceremony by having their moms pour 2 additional cylinders into the unity vase at the start of the wedding ceremony.
Happy Anniversary and many many more!
