Using colored markers and white satin ribbons cut to about 18 inches long, we asked two dear friends to oversee the table where guests wrote their blessings before the ceremony began. Then, using mini-clothespins, each person hung their ribbon from the line on either side of our wedding arch.
As we made our entrance and took our place at the front, the love from both the guests and the ribbons surrounding us was palpable. And when the ceremony began, so did the wind. As great refreshing gusts swept across the field, the ribbons fluttered like prayer flags scattering blessings amongst us all.
