Unique and fun!

I just had to blog about a wonderful, and very unique ritual from a recent wedding.

Here’s the back story: While speaking with the couple about all the different possibilities for their wedding ceremony, one thing led to another, and the groom suggested they flip a coin to see who would go first in speaking their vows. I immediately loved it, but held back to watch for the bride’s reaction. And it was a good one.

And so this is exactly what we did.

and...... the toss!

and...... the toss!

In fact, the groom arranged with the DJ to have the NFL theme played briefly for the special moment. Of course it was a complete surprise to their guests, and the crowd, as they say, went wild! Need I add that they’re big football fans?

The groom wins the toss!

Next, a spontaneous move! The groom,  being in the moment, after he won the flip, briefly huddled with his groomsmen. He then announced he was giving the bride her choice! It was so adorable and so totally ‘them!’

I just love it when these kinds of moments almost create themselves. It has to be the right little touch that fits the right couple. You can’t force something like this. It would be really inappropriate for most folks, but for them it was just perfect.

And thanks to the wonderful photography team of Reflections Creative Photography, I have the evidence to prove it!
