Matt and Randy’s 02/14/2014 wedding ceremony
Matt and Randy traveled from Houston Texas to Santa Fe New Mexico to have their union of love and commitment legalized. To witness their marriage ceremony they brought Matt’s sister and Randy’s brother. Their chosen venue was the Historic St. Francis Hotel.
Their marriage altar was the beautiful fireplace in the lobby of the hotel surrounded by candlelight. They chose a grey, orchid and blue color theme. They exchanged personal and heart warming vows and symbolized their union with a unity candle ritual. Every word and symbolism of the ceremony was unique and totally customized to reflect their values and personality styles. I thought I might share some of the photos from their ceremony and share some of the wording in their ring exchange.
“…may your marriage be as strong and resistant to tarnish has the titanium your rings are made of and may you wear them always as a visible reminder of your promises of love and commitment”.
