Despite the overwhelming joy of a wedding day,  many brides and grooms wish to pay tribute to important loved ones who have passed. 

For some, it is a simple mention of loved ones during the opening remarks of the ceremony.  Others like to offer a more tangible remembrance-be it a mention in a wedding program or lighting a candle of remembrance.  Some people like to place a flower in an empty chair, as a reminder of the family member or friend.  In the case of Karen, who had lost her parent at a young age, she had a vintage photograph of her Mother and Father on her wedding day, on a table near where she and her beloved Ash exchanged vows.  They chose to sign their license during the ceremony, on the table where the photo rested.   It had a feeling that her parents were watching over their daughter’s special day.
