What was the best part of your day?

Groom: “Seeing my Wife for the First time as she walked down the aisle.”

Bride: “The moment I locked eyes with my Husband and gazed at him until reaching him at the altar.”

Any tips you’d give to couples planning their wedding today? Try to enjoy the day of your ceremony and don’t stress about the small details.

Anything else you’d like to add about your wedding? We Jumped the Broom, an African-American Tradition.

The “Jumping the Broom” is a ceremony in which the bride and groom, signify their entrance into a new life and their creation of a new family by symbolically “sweeping away” their former single lives, former problems and concerns, and jumping over the broom to enter upon a new adventure as wife and husband.

The straws of the broom represent family; the handle represents the Almighty; the ribbon represents the tie that binds the couple together.

What would you have done differently if you had the chance? Nothing
