The Imbuement Of Shells Ceremony

After Coco and John’s wedding ceremony, they and their guests took part in an interesting and unique event that, I assumed, was part of Coco’s Philippine culture.  She had collected a variety of seashells and each guest took one, placed it against his/her heart and  took a private moment. They then threw the shell out over the cliff, upon which the Hammond Castle is built, to the ocean below. Here are Coco’s words about the ceremony.  “I thought long and hard about doing something that paid tribute to the beauty of the North Shore and, at the same time, honoring our dearly departed as we begin our new lives as family. It was also an opportunity for our family and friends to give us their blessings…. like an affirmative prayer. The act of casting them into the ocean sends those loving thoughts and energy out into the universe as a signal that will attract unto us those same loving positive energies. I called it The Imbuement Of Shells Ceremony.”
