Our Ceremony

Together, Jeremy and I wrote our entire ceremony, choosing words on marriage and vows that we feel represent what it means to promise to spend our lives together, always working on growing together while respecting each others individuality. Jeremy's long time friend preformed our ceremony, which was very emotional and filled with love. We also choose to have another friend do a reading called The Art of Marriage.

The only way I can describe the day for me is to say that it was the best day of my life! I remember standing with my Dad, before I walked down the isle and taking a big deep breath, while I looked out onto everyone that was there to share the day with us...

As I stood next to Jeremy, holding hands with him and somehow making it through my vows (despite my emotions getting the best of me), it was honestly the greatest feeling I've ever had in my life - knowing I was marrying the right person for me & knowing he was feeling the same way about the moment, it was all very over-whelming, in the best way!


Once we exchanged vows and light the unity candle, our friend announced us as Mr. & Mrs. and I remember letting out a huge smile, throwing my bouquet in the air and cheering out, so excited to celebrate this wonderful moment I've looked forward to for so long!

It was a beautiful ceremony, Lenna. I loved your "finally!" cry at the end. Made it all the more memorable.
