Military Weddings

There is something special about military weddings. The ceremonial attire, traditions of the archway of swords (sabers or rifles), and time-honored military wedding venues. The beautiful wedding parties adorned in the ceremonial attire including the men's uniform with white gloves give the special day an appeal of greatness. 

 

The Saber Arch is a common tradition, raising swords to create an arch and walkway for the bride and groom to walk through. "Saber" bearers approach the center aisle after the ceremony and the swords are raised in their right hands above the couple, signifying a safe entry into the bride and groom's new lives.
