“Our Bride and Groom have chosen to include a candle lighting in their ceremony, yet it is one that reflects who and how they are within their relationship. They have chosen to use a “Double Happiness Candle” Separately the characters mean happiness. They stand as two individuals who are whole and strong in and of themselves. Together they shall become double happiness which is the character for marriage. Two individuals joined by something larger than themselves seeking only their togetherness and the happiness of the one whom they love most in the world.
