    I love to incorporate a sand ceremony into my weddings, which is a beautiful and meaningful ceremony that originates in Hawaii. The bride and groom each have a small container of a different color of sand. These separate vials of sand represent all that they were, and all that they are, and all that they will ever be. By combining their individual jars of sand together, I pronounce that, “just as these individual grains of sand cannot be separated, so may your lives be blended together for all eternity.” Regardless of where this ceremony originated, it is a beautiful and meaningful addition to your beach wedding ceremony or a very suitable alternative to a unity candle ceremony.
