Wedding with Egyptian Embellishments
We've all heard the saying: "Just follow the instructions!" If this groom had followed instructions when signing up for a math tutor he wouldn't have met Jaime, the love of his life. They felt something click between them at their very first tutorial, and four years later they took their vows and exchanged rings engraved with Egyptian hieroglyphics. Jaime has a deep fascination with ancient Egypt, so there were several references to Egypt in the ceremony. I loved the words that Jaime wrote in her vow to Jake: "In ancient Egypt it was believed that you could get into the afterlife only if your name was written and protected. I have written your name in my heart." Later everyone partook of a cake decorated with Egyptian hieroglyphics!
