It's Knot Over

This is from a wedding I went to a few weeks ago; it was hung under a huge, old sprawling tree on a gorgeous little island in Boston Harbor, and part of the ceremony was conducted right by it.

The post about knots made me think about it. The couple incorporated a Celtic wedding tradition of tying different colored pieces of ribbon around their clasped hands, each color representing a unifying theme for the marriage (passion, faith, knowledge). It sounds corny but it was actually touching in its simplicity.

very cool a Celtic tradition plus buddhist prayer flags... blue, white, red, green, yellow... nothing corny about the wishing of good blessings!
