Family Traditions Hold True

A large part of the things we do at a wedding are because of tradition. Some of those traditions are commonly held among all people and some are only family traditions, and some of those traditions are new ones.

I am sure that you have all heard of the tradition that says a bride should wear:

Something old
Something new
Something borrowed
And something blue

But when Sami and Jake (actually Samantha and Jacob, but Sami’s brother is also Jacob and Jacob’s sister is also Samantha, so we do have to clarify) got married in July, Sami borrowed from tradition, but made it her own.

Sami was very close to her grandfather, and gave Jake his wedding ring as his own, but also did a twist on it. Instead of simply giving her grandfather’s ring, she took it to a jeweler and had them incorporate it into a ring so it was also Jake’s ring. It was something new and something old; the perfect combination of knowing where you come from and looking forward to where you are going. Additionally, their ring exchange was a very touching moment.

We were fortunate to be able to share in the circle of love that Sami was able to represent by giving Jake such a wonderful and thoughtful gift.

But Sami and Jake weren’t done with the personal touches to their ceremony. If we back up to their vow exchange, it was so heartfelt and touching. They wrote their own vows and simply spoke from the heart about their relationship and where they wanted to take it. That moment is one that they will always remember as one of complete connection.

We wish a very heartfelt congratulations to Sami and Jake and one for every happiness in their future.
