The Sunflower Ceremony

Posted by bridalbuds on Oct 05, 2009

Hi Buds! A funny thing happened during our wedding planning. I took so much care and consideration planning the reception and decor, that I didn’t give much thought to the ceremony itself!

Our goal was to have a simple, beautiful ceremony in a natural setting. To make this happen, we chose to have our ceremony on the golf course where our reception was also being held. We found a location that was secluded, yet close to the parking lot, and far enough away from flying golf balls!


The only decor items added were the 4 urns of flowers, which allowed the beautiful trees that hung over the guests to be the center of attention.


Walking down the aisle with my dad was a real highlight.


Our minister is a family friend and neighbor, which made for a perfectly personal ceremony.



Our 2 1/2 year old ring bearer Riley was a perfect addition. When using children in your ceremony, don’t set them up for failure – only require them to do tasks that they can handle easily. We only had Riley walk a few steps up to hand me the rings, and it was well worth it for the cuteness factor!


Leading the way back to the reception had to be the most fun part!
