I’m looking for a elegant way to word an acknowledgement of those who’ve passed and can’t be with us on our wedding day. While there are many, we want to especially acknowledge his mother, and our grandfathers. Suggestions please!!

We are having a short line in our program honoring Mr. LK’s parents. We are also displaying family photos of loved ones present and past, with a white cala lilly floral arrangement.
Other suggestions I have seen include leaving empty seats at the ceremony with a flower or photo of the deceased loved one(s), lighting a rememberance candle during the ceremony, and having a rememberance candle burning the whole time on the altar.
