Japanese-Inspired Miami Koi Gardens Wedding
Though we both come from Christian backgrounds, we decided to have a relatively non-traditional ceremony.
We group out seating in one large group so there was no aisle to walk down. We had no wedding party so instead of walking down an aisle, we walked in together while hugging and greeting all of our guests as we made our way to the front where we were going to say our vows. Our immediate family members were the last ones to be greeted before we met our officiant.
We also passed out a glass of champagne for everyone so that we could have a toast in the middle of the ceremony. It created a very welcoming and relaxed environment. Almost every single guest told us they appreciated our ceremony because they felt like they were a part of it instead of simply being an outside witness.
