| We believe that your wedding should be exactly what you want it to be. It is the beginning of a new life and should be everything your heart desires. There are many different ceremonies to choose from when you are getting married. You can choose one, combine several or create your own ceremony to make your day as special and unique as you are. Each ceremony has special vows and meanings, but can also be customized to your wishes.
One of the most popular new wedding trends is the Sand Ceremony. It is considered a unity ceremony and was most likely started in Hawaii where the couple were barefoot on the beach and as part of the ceremony, they would kneel down and take a handful of sand from the beach and pour it into one bottle simultaneously symbolizing two lives combining to make one. Today, most couples choose to use 2 smaller bottles of sand and pour it into 1 larger bottle at the same time. Sometimes a little is left in each of the smaller bottles to symbolize that even though the two have been joined as one, they are each still individuals. This ceremony can also include children coming to the marriage defining the family unit as one by allowing the children to pour their own small bottle of sand into the one larger bottle along with the couple. You can choose to use actual sand from the beaches here or purchase different colors of sand which when layered, will create a beautiful memory to keep and treasure of this special day.
