Bejeweled Marriage Proposals

Saturday, January 7, 2017 [1.7.17] was a special day, but also mystical from a numerology perspective. If one believes in Tarot cards, number 17 is the “Card of the Stars”, symbolizing wishes that will come true.

“Marriage is the golden ring in a chain whose beginning is a glance and whose ending is Eternity.”

– Kahlil Gibran

THE DETAILS

The delightful couple’s family and friends gathered at The Byron Colby Barn for a beautiful celebration of love. Sarah + Nick exchanged vows underneath an arch customized by the bride’s mother’s veil, hydrangeas, birch branches, baby’s breath and lace, as their favorite music, custom arranged by Nick, provided a soundtrack of endearing love.

THE CELEBRATION

The space glowed from top to bottom with baby’s breath, garden roses and twinkle lights hanging from the barn’s beams. Hand-crafted escort cards were presented on large burlap frames clipped by clothespins, and tables were graced with large vinyl records, with names of Sarah + Nick’s favorite bands. Between bites of a grand family-style meal, macaroons, cupcakes and fresh homemade mini pies from Sweet Discoveries and Sugar Fixe delighted all. Guests partied the night away to a musical soundtrack, custom selected and arranged by Nick, and at evening’s end, Sarah + Nick packaged their favorite music in custom CD cases for special and memorable guest favors.

To Be One With Each Other

What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen each other in all labor, to minister to each other in all sorrow, to share with each other in all gladness, to be one with each other in the silent unspoken memories?

– George Eliot
