Unity Candle Alternatives, Minneapolis Wedding Photographer

While the unity candle is a great way to represent two people uniting as one, some couples want to mix it up and do something different to show their union, especially if they’re having a windy outdoor wedding.

While the unity candle is a great way to represent two people uniting as one, some couples want to mix it up and do something different to show their union, especially if they’re having a windy outdoor wedding. Here are a few ideas from real Minnesota weddings to inspire a unique unity candle alternative for your wedding ceremony! Sand Ceremony  This is probably the most common alternative to a unity candle. For parents getting married, this is a great way to include the kids. Each kid can have their own color of sand, along with the couple. Instead of using a vase, you can pour the sand into a frame and use it as decor for your house.   Anniversary Box Many couples have been choosing to do an anniversary box where they write letters to each other to read on their first anniversary. During the ceremony, the couple places a bottle of wine and the letters in the box and nail it shut. A popular spin on this idea is a “first fight box” where couples open the box when they experience their first big fight. They read the letters over a bottle of wine. Hand Fasting This is an ancient Celtic tradition where the loved ones of the couple fasten the couple’s hands together with colorful cords (or other material). This custom represents the couple binding their hands together in unity. Feet Washing To show their service to each other and equality in their relationship, the couple washes each other’s feet.

University Club of St. Paul is such a wonderful Saint Paul wedding venue! With fireplaces, chandeliers, beautiful windows, romantic greenery, and stunning architectural detail, this venue is perfect for couples looking for a more intimate setting.The University Club was constructed back in 1913 and was designed by architect Allen H. Stem, a prominent Saint Paul architect who co-designed the Grand Central Station in New York City with Charles A. Reed. He also designed numerous Summit Avenue homes and local landmarks in Saint Paul, including University Club’s sister property, Saint Paul Athletic Club. The University Club has a beautiful view of the downtown Saint Paul skyline and Mississippi River Valley. The University Club contains a Fireside Room, The Summit Room, The Terrace, The Overlook Room, a library, and more! Their indoor ceremony site has a beautiful fireplace to serve as a backdrop. If a couple wants an outdoor wedding, the club will host you at Lookout Park which is adjacent from the property. For outdoor photos, I love walking with my couples around the surrounding area. There is so much beauty and history in this area of Saint Paul! For couples looking for an intimate Saint Paul wedding venue with beautiful architecture and a rich history, I highly recommend looking into University Club of St. Paul!

He proposed at Garden of the Gods by Pikes Peak in Colorado! Can you imagine being swept off your feet and the beauty? Their Mayowood Stone Barn “Fall in Love” wedding was filled with shades of bright orange and red! Their decor consisted of silk fall leaves and they even had apples as their wedding guest favors. The bridesmaids wore long, silver shimmer gowns to really make their red and orange bouquets pop!
