Julianna and Thaddaeus became husband and wife, surrounded by just their closest family and friends, at the beautiful Japanese Friendship Garden in downtown Phoenix, Arizona. It was enriched in cultural tradition and meaningful touches. Upon arrival guests could say a prayer over the bride and groom’s wedding rings. The couple’s unique guest book was a set of stones for guests to sign, as historically, stones are used as metaphors for strength, permanence, stability, and refuge- all characteristics we desire to emulate in our marriage. Once the ceremony began, couple exchanged vows and rings, as well as a hand fasting ceremony in honor of Julianna’s Irish heritage. To incorporate Thaddaeus’s French culture, he participated in a sabrage, which is basically cutting the end of a champagne bottle off WITH A SWORD. No, I’m not joking, but it sounds awesome!
