The Ceremony

November 11, 2011

Two people who met each other and fell in love, brought to the most intimate and special part of their day.  The Ceremony.  When two people join there lives together.  Walking together through the journey of life.  Hand in hand.

Although the barn loft at the WinMock was filled with our family and friends, it felt like we were the only ones there during our vows.  This was OUR moment.  Just the two of us……and 140 of our closest family and friends. 🙂

Upon entering the WinMock guest first stop at our Wedding Tree Guest Book.

Candles in mason jars filled with dried split peas lead guest upstairs to the barn loft.

The moss covered B & R that I spent countless hours gluing moss on.

Our wedding program that I designed just day before the wedding.

Bright green granny smith apples lined the aisle.

Ryan, his bestman/younger brother Brandon and our officiant Holly Marion.  If you or anyone you know is looking for someone to officiate your wedding we highly recommend Holly.  She is very kind and took the time to meet with us and get to know us.  She personally writes all vows for couples.  We loved this about her.  Our ceremony was 100% about us.

Headed upstairs to head down the aisle.

Doors closed for the big reveal!

The moment we’ve waited for our entire lives!

The hand off 😉

I love how our photographer  Lauren and her photographer hubby Dave captured sweet moments like this.

Our Vows.

Making sure his ring fits and stays put! 😉

Ryan grew up in Illinois and I grew up in Maryland.  For our unity ceremony we wanted something that was a little different.  Most people light candles or combined sand.  We got soil from our home states and combined it together.  We will be using the soil to plant a tree  in the future when we build our forever home.

The KISS!!


This photo was taken by a family friend so the quality is not as fabulous as Lauren’s but we love it!

Onto the cocktail hour and reception!

We are very thankful that Ryan’s aunt video-ed parts of our ceremony.  It flew by so quickly and love having that to look back on.
