Confession: I had a ring bowl made. But we didn’t use it. It’s just that I love Paloma’s Nest too much to pass it up. We didn’t have a ring bearer or flower girl, instead Brock’s brother and best man carried the rings in his pocket. It seemed a little awkward to make a 29 year old guy carry a teeny ceramic ring bowl down the aisle, you know?
And from the beginning, I knew we’d mostly be using it as an ornament on our tree. My parents have an “our first christmas” ornament on their tree and I’ve always kind of liked the sentiment.
I had the Shakespheare quote that we used on our programs and in our ceremony stamped into our bowl. I like that it doesn’t say our names or our wedding date or any traditional wedding-y thing. Instead it’s just a pretty, handmade reminder of our wedding and our vows and the awesome time we had that night.
love love love Paloma’s Nest. And I promise this is the last Christmasy post.
