In lieu of a unity candle, the couple created a special tradition called "bind us together." Guests were provided with ribbon and instructed to tie it to the ribbon of the person sitting next to them. The assembled then recited a blessing together.
"It was hilarious to watch everyone tie ribbons together," says Sarah. "It provided a little levity and it was really special to feel connected to everyone. The ribbons were then collected and wrapped up and Hoss and I said our vows with the ribbons wrapped around our hands."
