must say, I’ve done over 300 weddings at Keswick Vineyards and this ceremony was definitely one that I will remember. I always love it when the person marrying the couple has a personal connection to them. So, on Monday, October 9th, Ashleigh and Paul were married at Keswick Vineyards by the grooms father. Doesn’t get much better than that! The praise they were giving to God and his greatness was awesome! They Included scripture readings and hymns that just took the ceremony up a notch to me. Ashleigh and Paul wrote their own vows and the love these two share for each other was so obvious. The looks they would give each other were just adorable and they just couldn’t stop holding each other hands and kept whispering to one another throughout the ceremony. I don’t think there was a dry eye when they spoke of the love they had for each other. I am so blessed to be able to witness these moments weekly.
At the end of their ceremony they did something I had never seen or heard of. They did the salt covenant. The covenant of salt is an ancient covenant mentioned in the old testament. The couple puts salt in their spouse’s mouth to solidify their promise they made to each other and God. They will then keep the container the salt was stored in as a daily reminder of that promise.
And, as if the ceremony wasn’t beautiful enough, the reception and how the tent was decorated; over the top! This is the first time I have had a couple put greenery on the center support poles under the tent. Adding a chandelier over the dance floor and more greenery on each table; amazing! Pictures really don’t capture how beautiful it really was.
