The crowd went wild, following Joe and Josephine’s lead at cheering for the bride and groom. I don’t know how they got the two bears there, but I suppose there is always someone who knows someone who is the mascot.

There was nothing more perfect for this particular couple’s wedding celebration than bringing in two beloved symbols of cheer and victory from the couple’s mutual past (and it definitely beat shirtless guests with the bride and groom’s initial painted on their chests in blue and gold body paint).

First of all, wearing white makes you feel good because it’s the color of apparel associated with yachting or tropical vacations. It’s beachy, it’s light, it’s serene.

Sharing Marital Wisdom

by admin on August 3, 2011 in Ceremony Traditions with 1 Comment

This young couple, who were friends of the bride and groom, offered a three point teaching based on their own marriage experience. 1) Patience, 2) Partnership, and 3) Passion. They worked in their personal stories in order to illustrate the importance of each tip they were offering. They were public speakers by vocation and were humorous and thoughtful by nature, so their words were easily captivating.
