Mayrant Wedding Riverbend Westlake Austin Texas Lifestyle Photography

The little chapel at Riverbend is the perfect spot to tie the knot – literally! This ceremony was full of Irish traditions.

Handfasting is an ancient Celtic custom common in Ireland in which a man and woman come together at the start of their marriage relationship. During the ritual, the couple holds hands, right hand in right hand, and left hand in left with their wrists crossed. A ribbon or cord is then wrapped around their wrists in a figure 8, signifying infinity. Many people say this is where the saying “tying the knot” originated from.
