Hi! Has anyone here done anything unique to unite their families during the ceremony? My mom is obsessed with the candle lighting unity ceremony. She envisions coming up to the altar with my fiance’s mom and lighting a candle together to bond our families. But, our ceremony is outside, in the mountains, with not even a table to put anything on. Thoughts on how I can make this special for my mom and join our two families? I’m from the coast, so I was thinking about using sand or ocean water somehow, but my fiance is from Illinois so I can’t think of anything from there to combine it with. I also have considered doing something with rocks or leaves from the mountains where we live… Help! Thanks!
