Light! Light is one more way you can use your sight to enhance the wedding. If you’re outside, is there sunlight, direct or dappled? If you’re inside, does it stream through the windows or reflect out from the panes and mirrors? Does it flicker on your tables?
Candles aren’t really a great summer wedding tool, unless you’re doing a night-time wedding ceremony, (and then you need more than just a few votives, especially if you’re using une celebrante d’une certaine age…) but they add something special to the dark! There are so many wonderful metaphors for candles and the brave light in the darkness.
I will warn you however; all you who are set upon outdoor summer weddings and unity candles… They melt in the sunlight. They blow out in the wind. They’re invisible in the sunlight. So not always such a perfect metaphor for the summer.
Life is rich and we should call upon the richness of life and celebrate it in as many ways as we can!
You can do this too! Your love deserves nothing less!
Believing in you and your love,
