Today I am going to share with you pictures from me and Nick's wedding ceremony!
The Lincoln Theatre opened its doors in 1915; we were married in a 100 year old piece of history!
This place is so breathtakingly beautiful, we didn't even have to decorate it!
We walked down the theatre's aisle, and were married on the stage!
The outdoor marquee boasted our names and wedding date, saying "Now starring Mr and Mrs LaPinta! Release Date: June 6, 2015". It was super neat to see our names in lights!
It was very cool!
I walked down the aisle to Elvis Presley's "Love Me Tender". We were standing on the staircase waiting, and when I heard that song start, I knew it was time. It was such an exciting and emotional feeling!
My Daddy walked me down the aisle. This was one of the most special moments of the day for me. And I know for him too.
One of my aunts told my mom that she's been to a lot of weddings, and she has never seen a groom looking any happier than Nick did! She said he had a look of such love, and joy, she's never seen anything like it!
You can actually see him saying this to Nick in this picture!
It was absolutely wonderful.
During the ceremony, instead of doing the usual unity candle, or unity sand ceremony, we did a peanut butter and jelly unity sandwich ceremony!
We decided that we wanted to do something different, something that we had never seen at a wedding, to represent the uniting of our lives. So Nick came up with the idea of a unity sandwich!
During the ceremony, I spread peanut butter on a piece of bread while he put jelly on his slice. These represented our individual lives, and when we put the pieces together, represented the joining and uniting of our families, lives, and hearts. It was a very special ceremony, and everyone absolutely loved it!
Here are some pictures of the unity ceremony.
And I guess the following pictures of the rest of the ceremony prove that true!
I also kept giggling, I was just so happy and excited!
