Attended the rehearsal and married a great couple in a custom ceremony they created at the Hotel this past Saturday & Sunday. The weather wasn’t fantastic, but it wasn’t raining, so we were able to be outside for the ceremony which featured a Lasso Ceremony and a few words by Albert Einstein which were read by the Bride’s brother. Here is the Lasso Ceremony:
[Bride’s Uncle & Aunt come up to the front of ceremony holding the Lasso]
This cord symbolizes an infinite bond of love you share that keeps your relationship strong in the face of adversity, as well as that you both are no longer two, but one in marriage.
May this cord remind you to face your life together courageously and to be mutual in support of each other in carrying out your duties and responsibilities as a couple. And, may your love grow stronger and bind you closer together through the years.
[Bride’s Uncle & Aunt place the cord over Bride & Groom’s heads.]
Bride & Groom, as you are bound together now, so too your lives and spirits are joined in a union of everlasting love and trust. Above you are the stars and below you is the earth. Like the stars, your love should be a constant source of light, and like the earth, a firm foundation from which to grow.
[I then removed the Lasso, and presented it to Groom who gave it to the best man.]
And in case you were wondering about Einstein, here are his words that were read in both English and Spanish:
“Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love. How on earth can you explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love? Put your hand on a stove for a minute and it seems like an hour. Sit with that special girl for an hour and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity.”
The colors were marsala (dark crimson), navy, and blush. Best Wishes, Sean & Ana!
