Misty Minna. Misty was kind enough to share the beautiful wedding of Donna and Adam with us, who married in Grand Rapids, Michigan in September of 2011. If you are interested in doing a sand ceremony, this couple had a lovely one, which you'll find pictures of below. I also love the fact that they made so many eco-conscious choices: they married in a local park, used flowers from an organic market, and held their reception at a restaurant that supports local farmers. (Misty gave me a whole synopsis of this entire wedding, which I've included at the end of this post for your perusal.) Thank You Misty!
They used an organic market, Horrocks for the flowers. The reception was at San Chez, a downtown tapas restaurant that uses local farmers for produce and has sustainable business practices. Their wedding invites were also printed on recycled paper. They chose to have a sand ceremony, which is popular in Michigan. Donna and Adam ceremoniously poured various colors of unity sand from separate containers into one special container, the unity vase, symbolizing their coming together as one. It symbolizes the joining of their two lives into a single stream with their individually colored sands joining as one in the Unity Vase. Plus, it can be preserved unlike a unity candle.
