Your wedding day can live on in history with a comemorative brick. This one seen is included in your wedding package at Sarah Hite Memorial Rose Garden in Milwaukie.
Whatever you choose, let your wedding day be a reflection of the two of you. Don't be afraid to do things YOUR way. Below are a few example of how couples made their ceremony unique to them.
<left ~ added to the unity candle table was also an eagle feather, cystal quartz and a single red rose. Each represented something personal to the couple.
A couple chooses to be married in a cave at the beach then walk across hot coals together.
This bride wore her dream wedding gown while the groom was comfortable in jeans, leathers and dew rag. Conforming to the theme, the bride wore her leather boots with her gown (seen above holding champagne glasses) and the ring bearer wore matching attire to the groom.
Nothing more beautiful than a wedding gown on a Harley!
