I didn’t know Jami or Kory before their wedding day. But so quickly I came to learn just how beautiful of a couple they are, and authentically themselves. We had the opportunity and pleasure to work again with Danielle Elizabeth Inc., who led photography, videography, and designed the floral for the wedding. It was such a great night, witnessing such genuine love between the bride, groom, and all their family and friends.
Jami and Kory’s ceremony was unlike any I’ve attended this year. The couple wrote their own wedding vows, and carried out a hand tying ceremony. That’s not the part that makes this ceremony unlike any other this year. It’s what they said –the words they spoke. The vows they made were so eloquent, so raw, and so genuine. There were moments of laughter in their vows, followed with solemn pauses. Their wedding vows echoed all the sentiments of traditional vows, but the words weren’t pulled from “tradition”; I could sense these words came from deep within them. I don’t know if Jami or Kory enjoy writing, but I would say they are quite good at it.
The wedding was a more intimate wedding in size, and what I loved about that was the way the table for dinning was lined as one long table — a place for everyone to gather together, instead of multiple tables like one often sees at a wedding reception. Everything about the night can be summed up by three words for me, it was intimate, eloquent, and real.
And as far as writing wedding vows go, Jami and Kory have converted me into a huge fan. I know writing wedding vows is not for everyone. Josh and I stuck to traditional vows (adding in a few extra lines). But, if your considering writing your own wedding vows, after witnessing their’s, my answer would be to go for it!
