DIY - Ceremony

We created a very simple ceremony. The guests were led by a bagpiper out into the courtyard. Our celebrant, a good friend, gave a very brief introduction and welcome. We exchanged vows that we had written. We exchanged rings. A good friend read a short blessing. Then the bagpiper played a recessional, and we all headed back inside.

It was snowing lightly throughout the whole ceremony. The guests seemed to very much appreciate the brief ceremony, and many said it was the most lovely wedding they had attended. It was practical for an outside winter wedding, but even more important, it focused attention on the real heart of the marriage-- our vows.
