Something pretty to look at!
Very interesting water ceremony she mentions for her first wedding!
“We had done a water ceremony in our first wedding. Ryan and I both collected water from our home places. So for our vows we used that same water and joined our water with the water our children gathered from their home at the lake. Then Ryan and I cleansed our wedding rings with our new family water. We also had leather family bracelets made for each family member that we exchanged as we said our vows to the children. Another symbolic element that I didn’t even realize until Ryan’s Baba (grandmother) mentioned it, was that our five-year anniversary element was wood. And I had stacked wood up at the alter already. It was a meant-to-be element.“
