From the couple: We had a few unique wedding day traditions. First, we had Kobi, our lab-collie mix, serve as our ring bearer. He had on an orange and white bow tie and wore the ring bearer pillow that Abi's mom and dad used for their wedding. During the ceremony, Harrison also wore his dad's Naval Academy cuff links. His dad attended West Point Military Academy and when he was in school it was tradition to exchange cuff links with a Naval Academy student. We have also been dating since high school (6 1/2 years ago), and we met in band after Abi moved into the school district as a sophomore. Harrison says he was so terrible that Abi had to be moved from the alto sax section to help him follow along with the sheet music. The rest is history. :-) To represent this story, the couple used an antique saxophone case as their card holder and had the saxophone standing next to it with a flower arrangement in it. Last (but not least), Abi surprised her Grandma by quickly changing dresses between the wedding ceremony and reception. Abi changed into her mom's wedding dress that her Grandma had sewed for her, and (luckily) it fit like a glove! Abi and her mom called out Grandma and she was SO surprised and couldn't believe how good it looked. Her mom brought along a picture of her in the dress from her wedding day, and she, Grandma, and her mom took photos with Abi holding the photo of her mom in the dress. It was such a cool moment, and everyone loved the story behind the second dress.
