Sand Ceremony

Champagnes (Tans)
Ivorys (Off-Whites)
The bride and groom participated in a personalized “sand ceremony” designed to unite the two stages of their relationship. In one glass urn, sand from Long Beach Island symbolized their meaningful courtship, while sand in another urn from the beach in Naples symbolized their marriage. Together, Lauren and Chris poured both contents into a third vessel, inextricably mingling the grains.
