Bridal Traditions…

Something Old
Signifies a Sense of Continuity and Tradition

Landon’s earrings were a gift from her grandmother. They were originally designed for her grandmother, given to her as a gift from her late husband (Landon’s grandfather).

Landon wore a bracelet that belonged to her great grandmother.

Landon’s garter and the ring bearer pillow were made from her mother’s wedding dress and will become a new tradition for Landon to pass on in her family.

Something New
Signifies the Couple’s New Beginning

Landon wore purple shoes, a favorite color of Landon and her mother. Purple stands for good judgment, happiness, trustworthiness and spirit. Purple is a mixture of red and blue. Red and blue (representing female and male) symbolizes the power of creation, which is an attribute of God.

Something Borrowed
Borrowed Happiness

Landon wore a family heirloom pendant that many women in Landon’s family have worn on their wedding day.

Something Blue
Blue Represents Fidelity, Love, Good Fortune and Purity

Landon’s bouquet was adorned with a blue decorative clip, given to Landon by her aunt for her wedding day.

Bridal Keepsakes

On the eve of the wedding, Landon wore her mother’s wedding dress that was redesigned for the occasion, and a hairpiece that was part of her mother’s veil.

Decorative pillows that will adorn the beds of Landon, her mother and her grandmother were made from pieces of Landon’s mother’s wedding dress. Each day a memory of this special time will bless these three generations.

Church Kneeler

Landon and Zach knelt on a very special pillow during the ceremony that was needle pointed by her grandmother. Landon’s parents also used this kneeler during their wedding ceremony.

The Bride’s Cake Table

The bride’s cake table was adorned with a family heirloom tablecloth that belonged to Landon’s Great, Great Grandmother and namesake.

Silver candlesticks, given to Landon’s great, great grandmother by her husband on their 14th wedding anniversary, were displayed on the bride’s cake table. Landon’s grandmother gave them to Landon and Zach as a wedding gift.

Landon and Zach cut the cake using a cake knife and server that belonged to Landon’s great, great, great grandmother. Landon’s parents used the same cake knife and server on their wedding day.
