Cleo and Aaron's gorgeous Georgia wedding had one specific feature that we hadn't seen in a little while and had to call out: a foot-washing ceremony. This ceremony has roots in Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Paganism, and other religions, and has taken on lots of forms in contemporary weddings.

Mostly we just think it's a really sweet way to show love and service between each other. We especially thought this comment from our Instagram feed was perfectly appropos:

My husband and I did this instead of a ring exchange. We wanted our first promise to be a promise to serve one another.
