One of the most interesting things I saw this past summer was when the bride and groom washed each others feet. This was in replacement of the traditional Unity Candle Ceremony. It was modeled after the portion in the Bible in which Jesus displays serving others and washes His disciple’s feet. This really impacted me. Isn’t that what marriage is truly about, caring so much that you humble yourself and you put your spouses needs before you own? (Even if that means having to touch their smelly feet) 🙂

    Yeah, this is something so different and beautiful. The bowl they used was made for them a friend. What an great keepsake.

  2. What a beautiful symbol of their love for one another. This is the first time I have ever heard of this being done at a wedding, My grandmother went to a traditional church and they had feet washing services there. I have never joined one, but I like the idea. It is such a poignant demonstration of the servant-like love we are supposed to demonstrate to one another. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I for one have never seen anything like this being carried out and it was really interesting and great to see. What a great demonstation of true and honest love shining through, just the way it is meant to be. Thank you very much for sharing this.
