Love the locket-in-the-bouquet idea! A great way to incorporate something personal while not necessarily wearing it.

The Saber Arch is also a lovely tradition.

What a lovely wedding. I think military weddings are so neat, especially the sabre part as the couple exits the church. You look beautiful! I love the contrasting colors of your dress and earrings. Have a terrific holiday! Hope you get to spend some time on the water. xo xo
