the processional walk
I read about this processional walk and I fell in love with the concept. This procession requires no bridesmaids, groomsmen or young children. It does not consist of one in waiting and one being led and then given away. This procession holds focus on only two, the two to be united. It is a walk of independence, self assurance and the act of coming together in love. I envision this walk taking place across a field of green, like the one captured above by. The guest will watch the couple approach each other from a distance, opposite ends of the earth. This walk would seem even more enchanting if it were done in the evening, at dusk, a time of day when the sky is painted shades of pink and blue. The couple could carry lanterns to illuminate there way. When they reach the ceremonial spot, they would hang their lanterns from shepherds hooks. During the walk, the officiant would explain that the two have ventured many paths on their own and have learned their separate lessons and in doing so they found each other and fell in love. Now they are making the choice to make the rest of life's journey with each other. Deciding to share the moments, the experiences, the lessons, and the dreams. Now walking together, side by side, until life's end.
I believe in the ceremony of things. I believe in making personal occasions PERSONAL.
