This rustic, outdoor Real Wedding was submitted to our team at Perfect Wedding Guide Orlando and is featured in the newly released Perfect Wedding Guide Central Florida Fall /Winter 2018 book.
The wedding is absolutely adorbs, it included lots of personal touches and family members. One of our favorite pieces is what the groom, Ben, told us about their wedding vows.
When we began planning our wedding, we knew that we wanted someone close to us to officiate and her brother was a natural choice. Charismatic and creative, we knew he would develop the perfect ceremony for us and he didn’t disappoint.
During a pre-wedding meeting, we explained that we did not want to say the traditional “I do’s”, so he asked each of us to provide him lyrics from a song that we felt represented our relationship, adding that he wanted us to keep it a secret from each other, these would become the words we recited in front of our friends and family.
So, on our wedding day after reading our vows to each other, he asked us to repeat after him as he read aloud the lyrics we had chosen for the occasion.
We smiled together as the lyrics were repeated twice, relishing in that tender and intimate moment surrounded by love.
Choosing the same song was a perfect representation of how we felt, how in sync we were, how much we love and how much we are loved. Perfect…
You showed me I’m worth it and no one is perfect, we all have a purpose and mine is to love this life with you. To love this life with you, yeah. – Dirty Heads
Congratulations Aleena and Ben! We wish you a lifetime of happiness!
