handfasting. This is an Irish tradition that would be a neat way to incorporate J's Irish heritage. I'd just have to find something Italian to even things out ;)

Wedding Traditions in Ireland

Handfasting is an ancient Ireland Celtic tradition, in which a man and woman came together at the start of their marriage relationship. Each partner holds the hands of the other, right hand to right hand, left hand to left, their wrists crossed. The ribbon is wound around the wrists over the top of one and under and around the other, creating the infinity symbol. The practice gave way to the expression “tying the knot”.
