Rachael and Kristin were surrounded by their closest and dearest family. Each person had an opportunity to participate in a blessing stone ritual. The family imbued their individual wishes for the couple into a stone. Rachael and Kristin collected the stones and placed them around their unity candle. As the couple lit the candle their family wishes went forth into the Universe.
This was followed by the family encircling the couple to represent completion, family unity, and strength. Rachael and Kristin recited their vows within a circle of true love.
From the hearts of Rachael and Kristin
"Our family is a circle of strength and love.
With every birth and every union, the circle grows.
Every joy shared adds more love.
Every crisis faced together makes the circle stronger."
