For Manuel and Irma Hernandez, having a traditional Catholic ceremony, in Spanish, was very important to them on their special day. In the Hispanic culture, traditional rituals like the Unity Candle, Lasso and Arras Coins go back generations and generations. They are ways for close friends and family to share their blessings and participate in the couple’s nuptials.
The unity candle ceremony involves two taper candles with a large pillar candle (called the “unity candle”) in the center. At the beginning of the wedding ceremony, a representative from each light the two taper candles, and after the vows, the bride and groom use the two taper candles to light the unity candle together. This ceremony symbolizes the joining together of the two families, and their love for the bride and the groom, into one united family that loves the new husband and wife. It is the union of two individuals, becoming one in commitment.
The lasso is a cord that is placed around the bride and groom by a pair of close friends or relatives, to symbolize the infinite bond of love that a couple shares. It symbolizes that the couple is no longer two, but one in marriage.
Finally, the arras coins represent a reciprocal reminder of give and take. The couple exchanges the coins as a reminder that they will support each other, their children and the community around them. They are a symbol of a pledge of dedication.
While these special rituals add an incredible amount of meaning to such a special occasion, it was made even more special because Reverend Rene Esparza was able to perform their ceremony in their native language- Spanish. “Texas Wedding Ministers is well-organized and was very responsive to any questions or concerns that we had,” said Manuel and Irma. “Reverend Esparza was helpful during both the rehearsal and on the day-of. He took charge, and was friendly to all our friends and family. It was a good choice to have Reverend Esparza as our officiant.”
