I've had a few questions lately about our Blue feather ceremony that came from both of our obsessions with the gaming universe of Harvest Moon. We both met on a website surrounding the series so we thought it would be appropriate to incorporate it into our wedding.
Here's how we explained it in our ceremony:
God brings people together in many and varied ways. Sarahbeth and Sean met through because they both enjoy the video game, Harvest Moon. In that community, when a young man proposes marriage, he presents the young lady with a blue feather as an invitation into life together. I believe Sean has something for Sarahbeth!
The he handed me the blue feather.
We tried to keep is short so our ceremony was not too long or tiresome, but there is a longer story and explanation to it if you care to read it. But beware it is rather long: http://harvestmoonforever.blogspot.com/2007/07/legend-of-blue-feather.html
