What a great photo opportunity! Either during the ceremony or after. The bride, the groom and the officiant signing, signing, signing….um……something!
Unfortunately, the wedding license in most states is just an ugly duckling, and in many states (NJ included) the bride and groom don’t even sign it; just the witnesses. Two witnesses signing a legally looking piece of documentation does NOT a photo make.
Fortunately, there are alternatives, like this beauty, courtesy of www.fineweb.com, the website of Gary Fine, an officiant in Massachusetts. You can fine beautiful certificates and Ketubahs online, or you can ask your New Jersey Wedding Officiant (smooth, eh?) to make one for you. The signing of a beautiful document is so often an accompaniment to important and momentous days, and it might be just the sweet, symbolic touch to add to yours.
