Instead of a unity candle or unity sand, the couple chose to do a padlock ceremony in which they locked two padlocks together and intended to send away the keys, attached to helium balloons. But the balloons had barely enough lift to carry the keys. The bride and groom took it all in stride, laughing uproariously.
