What is an Oathing Stone Ceremony

The bride and groom say their vows while touching a stone. The guests are also given a small river rock at the beginning of the wedding, and are asked to hold it and think of a little prayer or blessing for the new couple. The stones are then given back to the couple to place in their garden.
