love letters, wooden crates & wine

For their wedding ceremony Cori & Z of hat & feathers created a wonderful version of an old tradition:

“We put a bottle of wine, two glasses, & a set of love letters (written in secret & unshared) into a wooden crate and then sealed it with nails (each nail was hammered by a family member to show their commitment to supporting our marriage & then finally by us). The crate is meant as an act of reassurance, a romantic gesture–if ever our relationship is in peril, we are to open the crate, drink the wine, & read the letters before we make any decisions about our future.”

Oh yeah, I love it!
