Spiritual Moss Green and White Wedding Tuesday, March 10, 2015 ~ 1:30 p.m.

Described by Joshua Aaron Photography as a "Young, headstrong [couple] focused on God," Alyssa and Hayden wanted a personal and spiritual wedding that reflected their love for Christ and each other. The marriage ceremony was held at the beautiful Stone River in Columbia, South Carolina, and decorated with white tulips and greenery, lanterns, and black Chiavari chairs draped in white fabric and ribbon. The touching ceremony featured the bride and groom washing each other's feet and lots of tears as the couple prayed and exchanged their own vows.


I know what you're wondering - a feet washing ceremony? Because I, too, am unfamiliar with the ritual, I did a little bit of digging. I found that the blogger behind, One Flesh Marriage explained it well and simply enough. "In John 13: 1-17, Jesus washed his disciples feet and instructed that we should do the same. Kate and I decided to start our marriage together with this symbol of humble love. At the time, this was based on the idea of service to each other, each becoming less so that the other, and thus, the couple, could become more."


The moss green and white theme was carried through to the indoor reception, which was decorated with a variety of sweet white flowers like tulips, daisies and roses. The bride, who loves to bake, created several two tier wedding cakes for each of the reception table centerpieces, and used fresh moss to cover each of the cake stands. Guests were also polled on who should wear the cake - the bride or the groom - a very cute touch at the cake table.
