This is my inspiration pic for the pews....
This is a pic of my first pomander ball, just waiting on the ribbon. My first DIY!
Unfortunately, the aisle was SUPER narrow, and I couldn't use these for the pews. I wouldn't have made it down the aisle with my Dad or new hubby without knocking into everyone. Comical maybe, but not the look I was going for ; ) Fortunately, my Mom did make good use of them. She hung them on a sign outside the church that said "Jessica & Rafael say I do today"
Ceremony Music Selections
Seating the parents- Parent's Prayer. Preformed by a family friend, originally by Steven Curtis Chapman
Wedding Party Processional-"Tale as Old as Time"-from Beauty and the Beast (instrumental version)
Bridal Processional-"Bridal Chorus"-guitar solo
Recessional- "I feel good"-James Brown : )
Rafael/Jessica, I choose you to be my husband/wife for life;
to be my lover, friend, and closest companion.
I promise to share your joys and comfort you in your sorrows,
...to stand by your side when we are in abundance and when we are in need,
...to respect you and encourage you,
...to do my best to make you happy,
...and help you achieve the desires of your heart.
I vow to love you with my whole heart, for the rest of our days.
Today, Jessica and Rafael have chosen to tie three strands of ribbon together into a single cord.
The white strands represents God.
The blue strand represents the groom.
And the pink strand represents the bride.
In tying these three strands together, the couple have demonstrated that their marriage is more than a joining of two lives together. It is a unity with God as well.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 says “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”
