Traditionally, boutonnières symbolize love undefined yet captured in a single bloom. However, Tobias was not wearing just a simple flower. Instead, his floral spray was a homage to Sarah’s hand-held bouquet. I could tell by they way they looked at each other, their love was anything but undefined.
As we talked, I asked Sarah and Tobias if they had brought any traditional good luck tokens with them. No, they hadn’t. After a quiet moment of thought, Tobias smiled broadly and declared, “We started a new tradition! Have two kids before you get married!” Sarah gleefully agreed, adding their first born, a toddler, was patiently waiting for them at home.
