From the grooms:
In lieu of a traditional unity ceremony, we wrote letters to each other, and put them in a wooden box with a bottle of wine we purchased in Budapest, where we got engaged. We will open it on our 1 year Anniversary.
We will be honeymooning on a cruise to Mazatlan, Cabos San Lucas,, and Puerto Vallarta the last week of November.
We went to a friends residence in the country to cut down the large 12 foot branches that lined the aisle for the ceremony. The florist covered the branches in Spanish moss, which got caught in my hair during the walk to the altar. Fortunately, my Maid of Honor, (humorously) removed it from my hair before we said our vows. LOL
