2. Sand Ceremony
3. Plant a tree! Both these families used soil from both their families yards/farms + poured them together and planted it at their home.
4. Branding. Cally + Travis branded their own piece of wood to put in their home. I loved this unique idea!
5. CHEER with BEER. This couple + their bridal party cracked open some cold ones together to celebrate!
6. Wine + notes in a box for your first anniversary! This can be done a couple ways, you + your partner can write notes to each other for you both to read on your anniversary or your parents can write you notes to read!
