Before the fall wedding ceremony could begin, Liz had her bridesman walk down the aisle and light a bundle of sage. He did this to cleanse the ceremony and is said to help purge negative energy and encourage the couple to start the next phase of their relationship on the right foot! Special touches like this are what elevate weddings to the next level, bringing a sense of intimacy and uniqueness. 

It was super cold outside so the couple provided guests with blankets adding a cozy element to the ceremony. Liz and Drew shared the sweetest vows, there wasn’t a dry eye at the event!
