Okay this might not be a good comparison…but

I saw a program from a wedding in which the bride wrote a little bit about her brother that died in the war. It was something like, even though he couldn’t be with us today, we know he is here in spirit…

They could write "Even though the groom’s parents ____ and ____ could not attend, they are celebrating our wedding in spirit. Their blessing of this marriage and well wishes are deeply felt today.

Sorry, I know I’m not that helpful!

I second Bamboo’s wording, but instead of saying "in spirit" I might say "from Haiti/home/afar" or "they are celebrating the spirit of our wedding". =) To me, "in spirit" makes it sound like they’re deceased.

I like Jenniphyr’s suggestion! As I wrote it I thought it was a bit like they were dead, but couldn’t work it out!
