It’s always fun when our brides and grooms express themselves through tradition and culture. Rachel and Todd brought to us a touch of Scotland at their wedding last weekend.
Did you know that the tradition of the groom carrying his bride over the threshold originated in Scotland? When the celebration was over, the new couple were led to their house where the groom, wishing to protect his new bride from the evil spirits that inhabit the thresholds of doors, would lift his new bride’s feet from the ground and carry her across her new threshold and into her new home. The priest would then bless the new home and would often bless the couple in their wedding bed before they would finally be alone together for the first time as husband and wife.
