10. A walk down memory lane, part 2

If you’ve already got your aisle decor set but you love the idea of having your guests walk through both of your lives in photos, fear not! Another great idea to have guests “walk your story” is to decorate the path between your ceremony and reception (or just your reception if they’re in separate places) with photos of both of you, from the time you met to the present.
