  • Tying the Knot Ceremony

    Tangled Up in Love

    Tying the Knot Wedding Ceremony

    The ceremonial tradition of Tying the Knot started as an intimate ritual, originating in the time of the Roman Empire. The tradition comprised on the bride wearing a girdle tied in knots. The groom would untie the knots before they consummated their marriage.

    As time evolved, the custom transformed to the physically tying the couple's hands together during the wedding ceremony. Their hands would remain tied together until after the marriage was consummated.

    Today, this tradition has become more symbolic representation of two people merging their lives together, and varies greatly among different cultural wedding ceremonies.

    Tying the Fisherman's Knot:

    One version of the Tying the Knot Ceremony performed in modern day wedding ceremonies consists of the partners working as a team to tie a fisherman's knot. This takes place during the wedding ceremony, performed in front of the couple's loved ones.

    The significance of the fisherman's knot refers to the physical knot's strength and reliability. This symbolizes the strength of the bond shared between the couple. Rather than waning under pressure, it grows stronger.

    What materials will I need to perform a Tying the Knot Ceremony?

    • Two pieces of rope (for example, fishing rope, ribbons, pieces of twine, or colored cord)
      • One strand represents you
      • One strand represents your partner

    2 PRO TIPS:

    1. Choose two different colored ropes to represent you as individuals coming together
    2. to avoid loosing the knot after the ceremony, assign a reliable member of the wedding part to be responsible for it's safe keeping until after the wedding.

  • Cord of Three Strands Ceremony

    Tradition with a Twist

    Cord of Three Strands Ceremony

    A cord of three strands is not easily broken!
    Those who go.
    Those who pray.
    Those who give.
    ECC, 4:12b

    Also referred to as "God's Knot" or a Unity Braid Ceremony, it is a symbol of you, your partner, and God joining in marriage. The sacred union created on your wedding day is forever remember through this braid.

    This ritual is typically integrated into Catholic or Christian wedding ceremonies. The concept behind it is that marriage takes three; god, you and your spouse. Throughout your life, God has taught you love, and by keeping Him at the center of your marriage, you will forever be bound by His love.

    What materials do I need to perform a Unity Braid Ceremony, and what does each piece symbolize?

    Cord_of_Three_Srands

    • A gold strand to represent God and His majesty. It is a tribute to His divinity. The covenant of your relationship is formed by Him. His authority builds it, and is made with intention of glorifying him.
    • A purple strand to represent the Groom and his life; his majesty as a new creation in Christ.
    • A white strand to represent the Bride and her life; her purity, having been cleansed by Christ's salvation.

    When incorporated into the ceremony, the minister will explain the ritual to the witnesses, and the symbolic representation of the braid itself.

    This tradition can be used in a wedding ceremony or a vow renewal, and is a spiritual/ symbolic representation of your love.

    Rodney and Josette Wedding

    Our Couple

    As we get to know our couples and their stories, we just can't wait to share their journey with you!

    How They Met:

    We interviewed Rodney after he shared the news of their proposal.

    Their's is not your typical love story. They were not childhood friends, or high school sweethearts... not even co-workers who realized they loved each other (like Pam and Jim from The Office).

    They are from different parts of the world; Josette from the Philippines, and Rodney born and raised in Texas.

    Rodney and Josette

    The road to finding each other was not easy. Before meeting, they endured heartbreak, trusted in faith, and found healing in peace which ultimately led them to one another.

    Before Rodney and Josette met, Josette had never been married, while Rodney had been married once before. He explains, "I married young at 22 and was married for 10 years with one child...". The end of a relationship is never easy, but with every ending is a new beginning. Through prayer, reading, and work, Rodney was able to heal and move forward.

    In starting this new chapter of his life, he was ready to find his partner in life and prayed, "for someone to love me for me, someone who would never give up on me or get tired of me... Someone who would fight for me everyday... Someone who loves God more than me, to be able to praise God together as one. Someone who was a little bit crazy because they had to be crazy to be with me :) ... and oh yeah, can she be Asian!"

    Through a dating app, Christian Dating For Free, Rodney decided to step out of his comfort zone and start up a few conversations. At first, he felt a lack of connection emotionally among the individuals he was speaking with... Until he came across Josette's profile. Unaware that when someone views your profile you receive a notification, Rodney clicked on her profile. And with a simple turning of the page, their story began!

    The ball was in Josette's court now:

    Hi- dating app message from Josette to Rodney

    One word. That's all it took! One word to break the ice.

    She continued to write that she loved Rodney's testimonial on his profile. She expressed how she had been going through a similar experience and felt comfortable talking with him about it.

    An Undeniable Connection:

    Even though the app they were interacting on was for dating, they both just wanted to have someone to talk to and who was able to relate... at first. But when they least expected it, everything changed. Once they began talking with each other for 12 hours at a time, it was clear they had something special.

    As their connection grew in strength, Rodney decided to book a flight to the Philippines to go see her. It was a leap of faith that would help them better understand their feelings for one another. This was to be their first time meeting each other in person. And, in that moment, it felt as if they had known each other all along. Their instant connection was overwhelming, but when its true love, you should expect the unexpected! This trip of a lifetime turned into a modern love story.

    When Rodney Knew Josette Was "The One":

    Returning home after two week in the Philippines, Rodney felt like there was a piece of him missing. Their shared love for God and their families proved to him they were meant to be.

    After one month, he decided he was going to spend the rest of his life with her; with her parents blessing, he started planning how he would ask!

    Ring Around the Wedding Rings- The Search for the Perfect Trio Ring Set

    As we've seen with many of our couples, Rodney did not want to propose until her had found and received his trio; all three rings exchanged in marriage. "I began my search for the perfect rings by typing in "couples rings" and came across My Trio Rings where I found the only rings that caught my eye," Rodney explained.

    For the love of his life, he chose the lovely Bella Collection Trio wedding ring set; a 14K yellow gold trio ring set featuring a heart shaped diamond cluster engagement ring paired with matching his and hers wedding bands, each made of yellow gold with a  single row of diamonds.

    In explaining why he was drawn to this diamond trio wedding set, he said, "Since I am giving her my heart, I want this gesture to be symbolized on her heart shaped engagement ring."

    How He Asked

    He had it all planned out; the big proposal was sure to sweep her off her feet... but he would have to wait an entire year to do it in person!

    It would be another year until he could go visit her in the Philippines, so in all the excitement of planning the proposal and receiving the rings, Rodney couldn't wait! He decided to propose to her where the first met, online :)

    How He Asked _ Rodney proposes to Josette

    Incorporating their loved ones, he asked them to hold up letters spelling out "Will you marry me?"

    To help them remember this relationship milestone, Rodney recorded the ring reveal, and her ecstatic reaction!

    The Wedding

    The wedding day was filled with beautiful sentiments as the couple was surrounded by their loved ones.

    Josette surprised Rodney during the reception with a choreographed dance.

    Their Future Together:

    "Now that we are married, it's still surreal that after all those chats and video calls, we are finally together," Rodney expressed. The blessing of their relationship inspired them to open a ministry in the Philippines where they are helping and supporting around 80 children.

    Though they are long-distance for the time being,they continue to support and encourage each other, and refuse to give up on their love.

    "True love doesn't waits, and it never fails."- Rodney

    Congratulations Rodney and Josette! We are so thankful to be part of this chapter of your life together, and we wish you all the happiness in your future together!

  • "A Walk to Remember"

     

    "A Walk to Remember"

    Rob & Jonathan

    Rob and jonathan

    How They Met: 

    Summer time on Fire Island. Two individuals were spending their summers on the southern shore line of Long Island, New York; an oasis of peaceful mornings, beach lounging afternoons, and summer nights spent under the stars. Jonathan was working , while Rob was vacationing on the island for the summer.

    Their first encounter, as described by the two, was not love at first sight. Pre-determine conceptions about one another had been formed, but with open-hearts, they let one another in, and found in each other what they had been waiting for. To paraphrase Rob, their souls dance, making them a perfect match; guiding each other through life and in love. "You have to meet us to understand," exclaimed the couple, so that's exactly what we did! [describe the couple's interaction]

    When asked what moment defined and solidified Rob's decision to propose to Jonathan, Rob responded with, "the first time I held his hand, I knew I was in love with him." This simple and confident answer perfectly sums up the powerful proposal that Rob thoughtfully planned.

    Finding the Matching Rings:

    Like many ring shopping journeys, it started with a simple Google search, which led Rob to the selection of Matching Men's Wedding Ring Sets by My Trio Rings. In his quest for affordable, authentic diamond and gold wedding rings that weren't too flashy, and that were versatile to be stacked with an additional wedding band in the future, Rob narrowed down his search to the Arabella Collection Men's Wedding Ring Set. After a quick 1 to 2 weeks of searching, and receiving a warm blessing from Jonathan's entire family, the time was drawing near.

    By slyly asking Jonathan questions about how he would like to be proposed, Rob narrowed his plan down to an intimate display of love shared with 12 loved ones; 6 of Rob's and 6 of Jonathan's loved ones.

    The Proposal:

    It wasn’t your typical weekend stroll for Jonathan Salazar & Rob Panos! On a weekend afternoon in the garden of Morris-Jumel Mansion, Jonathan took a life-changing stroll that gave us chills and brought tears of joy to our eyes. We were fortunate enough to have seen this beautiful act of love as close friends participated and captured the proposal of Rob Panos to Jonathan Perez.

    rob & jonathans proposal

    Casually walking down the garden path with a friend, Jonathan double takes as he recognizes 11 of his loved ones, each of them waiting to greet him with a hug, a kiss, and a fiery, red and yellow rose. With each embrace, the anticipation of the proposal grows. Guided down the path and around the archway of trees, Jonathan’s emotions are palpable as he realizes his life is about to forever change as he knew it.

    The 11th rose is given to Jonathan by Rob’s daughter. “There’s nobody like him in this world,” she exclaims through tear-filled eyes, “and there’s nobody like you,” she smiles with sincerity. Taking his hand in hers, Rob’s daughter leads Jonathan to her father who holds the 12th and final rose.

    We can sense Rob’s confidence as he takes Jonathan’s hands in his and states, “I want nothing more than to start a life with you.” Reaching into his pocket, pulling out a little red box, he presents My Trio Rings’ matching, Arabella Collection wedding bands featuring timeless white gold and authentic, conflict-free diamonds.

    The small gathering of loved ones had grown in numbers to a crowd of awestruck romantics who stumbled upon this beautiful production. “Will you marry me?” asked Rob. A simple question; four words awaiting one simple answer. “Yes,” Jonathan exclaims with elation. The crowd erupts in applause as the couple embraces and embarks on their life journey.

    Though not among the crowd, we feel lucky to be part of the beginning of a new chapter in Rob & Jonathan’s life together. Congratulations to two people who deserve all the happiness in the world!

  • The Great Diamond Debate: Real, Alternative, or Fake?

    The Great Diamond Debate:
    Real, Alternative, or Fake?

    Diamonds VS. Alternative Stones
    for your Engagement Ring

    Presenting your one true love with a ring has become a global symbol of devotion. A diamond is recognized as the most sentimental and romantic symbol of love and marriage.

    As traditions take on new forms, and both partners want to be involved in the purchasing process, we believe that every couple should be well-informed on the ring they are purchasing and the selection of stones they have to choose from.

    real_ alternative_ or_fake

    However, the Federal Trade Commission's recent amendment to the Jewelry Guides was approved with the intention of preventing deception in jewelry marketing. A Forbes article, The Jewelry Industry Grapples with the Real Impact of Lab-Grown Diamonds, refers the alterations of the original definition, "A diamond is a natural mineral consisting of pure carbon crystallized in the isometric system," by comparing it to the new definition, "A diamond is a mineral consisting essentially of pure carbon crystallized in the isometric system." This ruling, though it was meant to benefit the consumer, has resulted in confusion. There still remains a lack of consistency between the differing definitions of a Natural Diamond versus a Lab Grown Diamond. This translates to the consumer's pre-purchase anxiety, resulting in frustration and an elongated purchasing process.

    Simply put, whether it is formed within the Earth and extracted or grown in a laboratory, a diamond is a diamond. However, since there is still a strong distinction within the industry between natural diamonds and lab grown diamonds, it is important that all consumers are empowered with the facts to make a well-informed and confident decision.

    Who's it for? A sentimental & romantic individual with high standards for quality and a desire for one of a kind pieces. A  thoughtful individual who is in-tune with trends and wants to know that their diamond was created within a laboratory. An individual who wants a gemstone with great brilliance that is lab created and generates a yellow-green iridescence. An individual who wants to wear a ring with a large statement stone, without the value of a diamond. 

    real_ alternative_ or_fake

    The discussion of man-made diamonds within the luxury jewelry industry has been a controversial topic of conversation for a few years, being analyzed and debated by sources such as Forbes in the article Diamonds Disrupted: How Man-Made Diamonds will Disrupt the Mined Diamond Industry by Pamela Danziger. In this article, our industry experts here at My Trio Rings weighed in on the future of lab grown diamonds stating, "Lab-made diamonds are the result of a technological process which means their prices will drop like any other technological innovation, an effect described by Moore's Law. Our team predicts that as the prevalence of lab-created options increases in the market, their wholesale rates could drop 20-40% - due primarily to the prospect of unlimited supply and increasingly lower production costs."

    As jewelers start to offer alternatives to diamonds, it will be imperative that consumers remain well-informed on the fading fads, timeless styles, and the differences between the stones they can choose to set within their engagement ring and wedding bands. With this knowledge, you will be pleased with your final decision.
