Becoming the Garzas: Ceremony and Mr & Mrs!

Sharing the last of our wedding photos today (part 1 // part 2) with some ceremony, a few reception and some bride and groom shots! 

For our ceremony, E and a friend built the beautiful arbor that we stood in front of. My wonderful aunt draped it with real blooms. I went pretty light on the decor, but wanted flowers EVERYWHERE. We even had flowers in mason jars on top of logs in different places around the venue. 

E and I didn’t know what to do for a unity ceremony. We thought about lighting a candle or doing colored sand, but neither really felt true to us. In the end, we had a friend make us a box. We wrote letters to each other the night before the ceremony. During the ceremony, we had our officiant snap our picture with an Instax camera. We then placed the instant photo and our letters to one another in the box and nailed it shut right then and there (which was kind of comical because I am not very handy with the hammer as we quickly found out). The idea is that sometime down the road (we are thinking maybe our 10 year anniversary or if we need a pick me up), we will open the box and read the letters we wrote to one another.

    I just love your wedding photos, you are the most gorgeous bride! I adore the idea about putting the letters in the box, such a sweet sentiment! I might have to steal that idea when I get married one day (:

    These are so beautiful Ashley! Congratulations again!
    I absolutely love the idea of putting letters & a polaroid snap into the box – that's so creative and meaningful, and I can only imagine how wonderful it will be for you guys to cherish that together someday! We didn't feel like candles or sand were "us" either.
