This is perfect for a small wedding on the beach. Learn more about the shell ceremony for the Outer Banks.
Here each of the guests and wedding party are given a shell to hold during the ceremony. At the end of the ceremony, the officiant requests everyone go to the edge of the water with their shell, silently make a wish or blessing for the bride and groom, then return the shells to the ocean thereby combining all the wishes and blessings to ebb and flow together forever.
The guests actually get to participate in the ceremony and find it to be a very heartfelt experience. W
