Danny and Rachel got married last week at Theo Chocolate Factory in Fremont (ie: Seattle). Besides the fact that beautiful people belong together, the wedding and weekend were fantastic altogether. The ceremony and reception were both held in the back warehouse of the building, so with the brick exterior and then dark candle lighting, it had a glamorous city feeling to it. My favorite part of the ceremony was when they lit the candles: instead of doing the traditional unity candle, candlelighters came down the aisles and started passing the flame. Then every person in the room took the votive from underneath their chair and symbolically lit the "unity" candle while Danny and Rachel watched. To me that so significantly symbolizes the role of community in the unity of a husband and wife. It was beautiful. And again, as were they.
