Our Wedding Ceremony

This week, I'm going to talk about the ceremony of our wedding. While planning the ceremony, Gabriel and I knew we wanted to keep it traditional christian - minus the church and the alter of course. At first, I was a little hesitant on the idea of not getting married in a church, but when I sat back and thought for a sec, I realized... the "church building" isn't what's important, it's the people in it.
So, under the oak tree it was and God sure joined us there too!

To be honest, from the moment I walked onto the property of the farm (a year before) I felt the Lord's presence there more than ever. There was something about that farm that was so surreal and tranquil.


Our ceremony was held mid afternoon (1pm) on a Sunday. We choose to have our wedding in the middle of the day for several reasons:

a) we love day light
b) we wanted our wedding to end at sunset
c) warmest part of the day

And so it began...

Some extras:
-Verse read: during 3 chord strand demo (Ecclesiastes 4:12)
-Communion was partaken just by bride & groom and My Beloved was played during
-I walked down the isle to How Great Thou Art
- We wrote our own vows

By far, the ceremony was my favorite part.  It was a very intimate time with my hubs, yet shared with those closest to us. I will never forget Lord's presence, peace and blessing over us out there under that tree.


If you have any more questions about our ceremony, don't hesitate to ask! Even though the ceremony was my favorite, it was one of the hardest parts to plan. Don't let it overwhelm you. A few months after the wedding, you won't remember half the stuff you were worrying about.
