I’ve said it many times…I love when couples infuse their wedding with their unique personalities! When I was perusing Shannon and Bryan’s wedding photos I noticed a couple of photos of them with a shot and beer glass in their hand during their ceremony. Well, that isn’t something you see every day, so I inquired with Shannon…
Question: You had beer during your ceremony! What is the story behind that?
Shannon: We had a unity cocktail! We wrote the ceremony ourselves, and we really wanted our personalities to shine through. Other couples opt to light a unity candle, or combine sand, or some other variation on the unity theme. Well, anyone who knows us knows that Bryan loves beer, and I love whisky. And what goes better together than beer and whisky! So we combined the two in a unity cocktail, and I dropped my shot of whisky into Bryan’s glass of stout. We each then took a sip. (It was a huge hit with the guests!)
Thank you Shannon and Bryan for letting me feature your wedding on the blog this week. Readers, I hope you glean some unique wedding inspiration for your upcoming nuptials! Remember, have fun at your wedding. Do something rarely seen, like having a unity cocktail during your ceremony. You and your guests are sure to remember these distinctively personal touches fondly for many years to come!
