Rebecca + Patrick’s wedding ceremony was one of the most memorable of the season for us. They incorporated one of our favorite ceremony traditions: Upon entering the ceremony area, guests were asked to select a stemmed flower and add their bloom to a “blessing circle” on the ground at the altar. The bride and groom then stood within that circle as they said their vows. It was powerful.
A favorite memory of the day and a testament to #WhatWeddingPlannersReallyDo: At the end of the night, after Rebecca realized that she had mistakenly left her (amazingly gorgeous) bouquet somewhere by the riverbed during portraits earlier in the night, she and I embarked together on an adventure to find it. In complete darkness. Next to a rushing river. Equipped only with my phone flashlight, we crept through the riverside brush while she reflected on the day and overflowed with feelings. It was a cathartic moment for me, though she probably didn’t realize it at the time. Magically, we did find her bouquet.
