- Wedding: June 2014 - British Columbia
I would love to see photos of you and your spouse walking down the aisle together!
This past June, my fairly new DH and I walked down the aisle with our dog.
Walking together down the aisle was actually DH’s idea, since we unexpectedly lost my dad to heart attack months before the wedding. During the planning stages, my mom told me that she was not comfortable escorting me. Also, DH and I see each other as equal partners in our relationship; in many ways, this was symbolic of our relationship. Seeing how others did it pretty much solidified the vision for me. Reading THIS article also helped.
There was no “giving away”. Our families walked in together: procession began with 2 flower girls, parents of the groom, my mom & sibling, MOH & best man, then us. However, our parents gave a general consensus before the ceremony could proceed. The recession happened in similar fashion. In that sense, I felt our families were grieving and celebrating life together, at the same time. (DH lost his aunt to cancer 3 weeks before the wedding) We placed white roses on the altar to honour the memory of loved ones.
