We included it as part of our reception, instead of the actual wedding. We had Katie read a brief introduction, then we used blue and silver sand to fill the glass vase. The engraving on the glass (it's difficult to read in the picture) is
Tom and Michelle
There and Back Again
We used a base of periwinkle shells from the island before adding any sand. While we poured the sand, we had 'Suddenly' from the Les Miserables soundtrack playing. I think, for us, this was a much more appropriate idea than the traditional unity candle ceremony during the wedding. It's just another example of how we made the wedding uniquely our own and absolutely perfect for us!
