They included a sand ceremony and we included pouring of sand from several family members that symbolized the important things family means to Sylvie and Mark.
Sylvie's nephews, Shane and Cody, sprinkled the mulch path with flower petals. Flower boys?
Shane is so cute!
Sylvie was escorted in by her cousin, Todd.K9 Solutions which specializes in dog manners and behavior. Needless to say, our 4 legged furry guests were very well behaved!
The other side of the aisle!
We began with a welcome to all and I explained the stone warming ceremony. Each guest had taken a stone to hold during the ceremony infusing them with their blessings for the couple. Then the stones were placed in a birdbath at the end of the ceremony.
The more loops the stronger the bond.
"With this ring I marry you and pledge my heart to you."
Sylvie and Mark each poured a layer of their sand.
Tina, a cousin, then added more blue representing the sweetness of marriage.
And finally, Sylvie and Mark blended the remainder of their sand together on top.
Before I pronounced them husband and wife, they were blessed with a call to the directions and the four elements of Air, Fire, Water and Earth. Then I invited them to kiss!
Off into their future together!
