Their ceremony was performed by Dr. Louise Chickie-Wolfe. Her ceremonies are so well done, personal, serious with a touch of humor and very, very heartfelt. She puts a lot of effort into each ceremony and it definitely shows.
Before the unity candle was lit, the bride and groom had their mothers each light four candles representing their life as a baby, child, teen and adult. Louise added in anecdotes that the mothers had provided and it was really sweet and sentimental. We did learn that the last two candles need to be tapers and NOT pillars. It was comical when they tried to light the unity candle with the two pillars! They improvised and used a taper candle together.
