With all of the craziness of throwing a giant party for all of your friends and family, sometimes you lose sight of the fact that a wedding is actually centered around a ceremony. That ceremony might only be 30 minutes, but it impacts the rest of your life in profound ways and shouldn’t just fly by with the rest of the day. During Rory & Elise’s ceremony, time seemed to stand still. The rain outside fell insistently on the tin roof and guests sat in a circle around Rory & Elise as they made vows that bound their souls together. While rain on your wedding day can be a bummer, in that moment it felt perfect, sacred and intimate, as though nothing else existed but that moment.
