For their wedding at Franciscan Gardens in San Juan Capistrano, Lauren Brown and Ryan Villasenor opted for a guest book that would be close to their hearts. The couple asked guests to pick their favorite Bible verse and leave a note in the margin of their new family Bible. Says Lauren, “What better way to reminisce about our wedding day than in church or at home looking up a verse and seeing someone’s note for us and the Bible verse they chose to share. It is so personal and intimate.” Lauren shared the idea ahead of time on the couple’s wedding website, so guests had time to select a verse.
