A Beautiful White Wedding

The traditional bride always wears white on her wedding day. But beyond tradition, white is, at its cores, the physical image of light in perfect balance--everything and nothing at the same time. White is the willingness to surrender to purity and joyous weightlessness of being. Taken by itself, it is a blank canvas, a clean slate--simple, fresh, and without adornment; nowhere else is potential and beginning so clearly illuminated.

Paired with green, white is immediately in accord with nature and the home. Matched with silver, it is a statement of understated elegance and undeniable class.

"God paints in many colors; but he never paints so gorgeously--I had almost said 'so gaudily'--as when he paints in white." -G.K. Chesterton
