A Sabering Experience – Swords and Wedding Words

Canadian Bride on his wedding day opening a bottle of champagne with a saber

A wonderful couple from Canada made their destination wedding one to remember with a venue at the Fairmont Sonoma, CA, wedding words by Wedwordy, and a champagne toast via sabering! What is sabering, you may ask? It’s a way of opening a bottle of champagne by way of a cermonious whacking off of the cork with an appropriate instrument – a saber, if there’s one available. Also called “sabrage”, this tradition is fun to witness. Sometimes, the bottle top and cork don’t always separate cleanly (as in our featured picture). No guests were injured in the sabrage! Only joy and fun by those celebrating Jennifer and Ian’s wedding day.

Here is an excerpt from their wedding script, powered by Wedwordy:

Vigilance and uncompromising loyalty for the well-being of your partner will not only help you weather a storm, but it will certainly surround your everyday with tenderness and care.   
Growing together in marriage is truly a most fulfilling adventure. Each day is an opportunity – a blessing, for a comforting embrace, a stolen romantic kiss, a kind word, and genuine laughter and joy.

Congrats, Jen and Ian!
