Our Wedding // The Ceremony



Part three of our wedding - and honestly, the most important part...the ceremony. It was really just magical. Short and sweet, and super intimate. 




I walked down the aisle with my dad to "Fix You" by Coldplay, my favorite song of all time and in my opinion, one of the most romantic songs ever written. I tried really hard not to cry because I knew if I started, it would be unstoppable ;) 

The alter was just breath-taking. Mountain Magnolia Inn has an 150-year old Walnut tree that makes for such an amazing setting. We decorated with glass lanterns, hanging crystals, a curtain of peach carnations, and an aisle of white rose petals. It was truly a mountain fairytale, which is what I hoped for when planning.

We were married by my childhood pastor, Anne, who I have wanted to officiate my wedding since I was a little girl. It was so special to have her there and she gave the most beautiful and heartfelt ceremony. My sister read the poem "I Carry Your Heart With Me" by E.E. Cummings, and then Aaron and I exchanged vows... an altered (but similar) version of the traditional wedding vows. 

After our first kiss as man and wife, we head back down the aisle to "A Sky Full of Stars", also by Coldplay. Don't judge, we just love their music and it fit so beautifully! xx
