Hand Fasting

Couples would also perform this ceremony themselves until someone came through the village who could perform marriages. This binding of hands has given us the expression “tying the knot.” Here’s an excerpt from the Hand Fasting Ceremony: “With the fashioning of this knot do I tie all the desires, dreams, love, and happiness wished here in this place to your lives for as long as love shall last. In the joining of hands and the fashion of a knot, so Find Out More

Sedona Best Man

This is Abner. He played quite a part in a recent Sedona elopement. Abner looked quite fetching in his tuxedo collar. He gave the bride away and was the ring bearer. He also thoughtfully sat on her train so she wouldn’t float away in bliss. He was a great addition to the wedding. And he got to have a lovely cool off in the Oak Creek. Having your beloved pet at your ceremony is a sweet touch!

Serious Commitment

I wanted to share this with you! Our bride and groom on Valentine’s Day went so far as to have each others’ names tattooed on their arms. The groom said that she did hers first as a gift to him. It freaked him out at first, but then he got one too and he went even bigger. Now that’s a serious commitment! More wedding tattoos here.
