We've been trying to think of something different to do in the wedding ceremony instead of the candle lighting or the sand pouring thing that usually takes place. Angie has seen too many candles not light or blow out and she's really not keen on the sand pouring either. I did peak her interest though when I showed her this picture of a couple mixing white and red wine at their ceremony. I found this on Robert and Kathleen's photography blog. Check out their beautiful pics by clicking on the title of this post. If any of you have any different ideas about what other things might take the place of the candle lighting during the ceremony please leave your comments below. We'd love to hear some different ideas.
Hi there! My name is Sandy and I live in Indianapolis. Thanks for visiting my little blog. I started this when my oldest daughter (I have two) got engaged because she was planning her wedding and it was driving me crazy that I didn't get to be the one deciding on the decor. At my own wedding 28 years ago I don't remember really caring anything about the decor. My mom planned most of it. Anyway this became an outlet for me and my creative juices. I have decorated a few weddings and 50TH anniversary parties, birthdays (most of which I never even got any copies of the pictures for because I didn't have a camera or a computer or a blog or even know what a blog was for that matter) and I have always decorated for the birthdays of the kids I take care of. I still don't have a working camera so it's been very frustrating having to rely on others to take pictures and actually send them to me. They rarely deliver. I would love to actually get to do a party where the budget was BIG. Seems I am always doing everything for free for friends and family so the party business so far is costing me money. If you'd like to pay someone to do yours, most likely I am available and would love to help. If you are an event designer and need help, look no further. I've collected a lot of vases and decor over time and would be happy to sell or rent any of it. If you see it on my blog and want to use it or need help with your party just leave me a comment and I will be happy to get back with you.

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9not by works, so that no one can boast.
