Brad + Patsy | Lafayette Square + Vic’s on The River | Savannah, Georgia Real Wedding

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-13

This probably is one of the most popular wedding readings. Patsy and Brad made me stop and think about this verse on their wedding day. They truly showed this type of love to each other in every way possible. It was a joy to be a part of their wedding day and get to know them just a little bit more.

String Lights!

String lights come in many different sizes, shapes and colors and will add a more intimate feel to your outside, indoor, or tent wedding. They give an amazing glow that you can’t get any other way. Some historical venus do not allow candles, string lights are a great alternative. If you are going for a more elegant look go with all white lights. For a whimsical feel have colored lights mixed in with white or add streamers. For a more vintage look go with the large bulbs. Strings lights are just the start of what you can do with lighting for your ceremony and reception but are sometimes a cheaper way than hiring a company to add up lighting, spot lighting and more. Check out these great ideas!!

10 Obscure Marriage Laws in the U.S.

1. Legal: Marriage by Proxy for Military Personnel

Marriage by proxy, which means someone can stand in for a bride or groom who can’t be present at his or her own wedding, is limited to members of the U.S. Armed Forces. But of the four states that allow the practice—California, Colorado, Texas and Montana—Montana is the only one that allows double-proxy weddings.

2. Legal:  Marriage Under the Age of 18 with Parental Consent

For a few months between 2007 and 2008, anyone under 18 could get married in the state of Arkansas with parental consent. That’s right, even babies could get married as long as their parents agreed.

3. Legal:  To Annul a Marriage That Was Done on a Dare

Ever been dared to get married…as a prank? Neither have I. But apparently this happens often enough in Delaware that it’s actually an option when couples file for an annulment.

4. Illegal: To Marry the Same Man Four Times

In the state of Kentucky, it’s illegal to remarry the same man four times.

5. Legal:  Man Must Prove Himself by Killing Birds

In Truro, Massachusetts, a groom-to-be must “prove himself manly’” prior to marriage by hunting and killing either six blackbirds or three crows.

6. Illegal:  Married Couples to Sleep Nude in a Rented Room

Apparently, married couples are not allowed to sleep in the nude in a rented room in Massachusetts.

7.Illegal:  For Men Over 16 to Propose Marriage—and Not Mean It

In South Carolina it is illegal for a man over 16 years old to propose marriage and not mean it. Doing so means he’s committing a misdemeanor under the Offenses Against Morality and Decency Act.

8. Illegal:  Mistreatment of Mother-in-Law as Grounds for Divorce

Many husbands would probably say their mother-in-law isn’t their favorite person in the world. But for those who really, really dislike their wife’s mother, moving to Wichita, Kansas, might be a good option.

9. Illegal:  For Married Couples to Kiss in Public on Sundays
The police can cuff you and throw you in jail—that is, if you live in Hartford, Connecticut…and it’s Sunday. Well, maybe not these days, but technically, it’s still illegal in this city for a man to kiss his wife on the Lord’s Day.
10. Illegal:  For Palm Readers and Fortune Tellers to Officiate a Wedding
