A beautiful hotel by the sea was the venue for this weekend wedding, It featured a sand ceremony, whereby the couple poured individual glasses of sand into a third glass, as a symbol of their unity.
…Today you join your separate lives together. The two separate bottles of sand symbolize your separate lives, separate families and separate sets of friends. They represent all that you are and all that you’ll ever be as individuals. They also represent your lives before today. As these two containers of sand are poured into the third container, the individual containers will no longer exist, but will be joined together as one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will your marriage be.
The couple repeated their vows in both English and Spanish – the groom and his family are from Spain, while the bride’s family is from the USA and Thailand.
The ceremony was held in a valley that opens out onto the beach, a very romantic spot.
