Sarah and Daniels wedding ceremony at Shiloh Farm Tallahassee
On October 15, 2017 I had the honor of officiating Sarah and Daniel’s wedding ceremony Shiloh Farm Tallahassee. It was the most beautiful day for a beautiful couple.
When planning their wedding Sarah had asked me for an affordable way to have someone make sure the reception ran smoothly. A Day of Coordinator was more than they were able to spend. Fortunately they are a very organized and well planned couple so my awesome assistant, Tyler, was able to work their reception for a few hours.
I worked with Sarah to put together their ceremony. She wanted a short and sweet ceremony that mentioned God. They also wanted to include a cord braiding ceremony. A traditional cord braiding ceremony uses gold, purple and white cords but they had tan colored rope so they asked me to help adjust this part of the ceremony. It really turned out beautiful, as you can see below.
Cord Braiding Ceremony
Today, Daniel and Sarah have chosen to braid three strands together into a single cord. Each strand has a significant meaning.
The 1st strand represents God and His majesty.
The 2nd strand represents the groom and his life.
The 3rd strand represents the bride and her life.
In braiding these three strands together, Daniel and Sarah have demonstrated that their marriage is more than a joining of two lives together. It is a unity with God as well. They have chosen to allow God to be at the center of their marriage, woven into every aspect of it.
As Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 reads, “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not easily broken.”

Today, Daniel and Sarah have been woven together by God as ONE in marriage! One man, one woman, and God. It was God who taught us to love. By keeping Him at the center of your marriage, His love will continue to bind you together as one throughout your marriage.
The reception was fun filled including a pizza buffet and candy bar!
