Ceremony Types

A civil ceremony is a beautiful ceremony that doesn’t reference God or any other spiritual deity.  Civil ceremonies may have traditional or contemporary readings and there are no prayers or blessings.

A non-denominational ceremony is typically Christian, without adhering to any particular denomination (Catholic, Baptist, etc)  A non-denominational ceremony may have traditional, Christian and/or contemporary readings.

A Spiritual ceremony is a beautiful ceremony that often incorporates traditions, blessings, and/or prayers of non-Christian faiths.  ie. Muslim or Buddhist.

Interfaith/intercultural ceremonies incorporate traditions, blessing, and/or prayers from more than one faith or culture. ie. Buddhist and Christian elements, African and Hispanic cultures.

A Commitment ceremony is often very similar to many other kinds of weddings. The difference is that rather than being a legally binding ceremony, it is simply a public affirmation of a couples commitment to one another. Generally, the couple is a lesbian, gay, or transgender couple, and thus are unable to marry under the law. A commitment ceremony may be religious or secular, formal and traditional or loose and unstructured.                                     


Some Ceremony Traditions

Unity Candle Ceremony

The Unity Candle Ceremony consists of the lighting of one candle from two separate candles held by the bride and groom. This ceremony symbolizes the union of two lives into one. Creative variations can be added to the ceremony, such as the mothers of the bride and groom, or any designated member of the wedding party, lighting the candles after they walk down the isle or during the ceremony. The couple may keep the candle (some re-light the candle each year on their anniversary).

The Blessing of the Rings

The wedding ring is the visible sign of an inward bond which unites two loyal hearts in endless love. It is a seal of the vows made to one another. It symbolizes living together in unity, love and happiness for the rest of their lives.

Breaking of the Glass

The breaking of the glass at the end of a wedding ceremony usually is reserved for Jewish ceremonies. However, it is a beautiful ending to any wedding. “Breaking the glass serves to remind us of two very important aspects of a marriage. The bride and groom - and everyone - should consider these marriage vows as an IRREVOCABLE ACT - just as permanent and final as the breaking of this glass is unchangeable. But the breaking of the glass also is a warning of the FRAILTY of a marriage. That sometimes a single thoughtless act, breech of trust, or infidelity can damage a marriage in ways that are very difficult to undo - just as it would be so difficult to undo the breaking of this glass. Knowing that this marriage is permanent, the bride and groom should strive to show each other the love and respect befitting their spouse and love of their life."

Sand Ceremony

     This beautiful ceremony takes sand from two separate containers and mixes it into one container and symbolizes two lives coming together as one.  The words in this ceremony are beautiful and touching.  Have your container engraved as a keepsake, use different colored sand or even add some seashells for a beach wedding.  

Children Services

Many couples are remarrying and want to include their children in the ceremony. There are numerous ways this may be done. Ask us about the Family Medallion Ceremony or a special unity candle ceremony.

Flower Ceremony

This is a family/friends ceremony. Each designated person comes up and places a different flower in a vase to create a garden of love.

Honoring the Mothers

A brief reading is done and then the bride and/or groom present their mother(s) with a small gift (flowers usually).

Silent Blessing and Moment of Remembrance

Both are small blessings/readings honoring the deceased. They may include specific names or a general statement.

Ribbon Ceremony/Handfasting

The ancient Celts tied the hands of the bride and groom. The officiant loosely binds the hands together. They remain that way for the rest of the ceremony

Rose Ceremony

This is one of my favorites. A symbolic ceremony using roses, the symbol of love. The couples who have chosen this have described it as an extremely beautiful and moving ceremony.

Families Service

Parents become part of the introduction to the vows. The officiant asks who brings this couple to be wed and both of the parents either answer or have a moment to say something.

The Laso

     A beautiful Hispanic tradition where the bride and groom are linked together by a giant rosary that is loosely placed around them.  But you can be creative and use a garland of flowers.

Wine or Water Ceremony

The couple share a cup of wine or water while the officiant says a blessing and a reading.

Blessing to the Four Directions

A long time ago, people believed the human soul shared characteristics with all things celestial. This prayer service designates the four points on a compass with human virtues.

Jumping The Broom

There are many different versions of this ritual which involves the couple jumping over the broom. Essentially, the jumping of the broom is a symbol of sweeping away of the old and welcoming the new, or a symbol of a new beginning.

                                Special Event Insurance

Protect yourself.  Let's say at the last minute something happens to postpone or cancel your Wedding.  (This actually happened when the venue burned down.) If you have event insurance, you would get back all the money that you had spent.  This is very useful to protect you & your investment in your wedding should something happen.  It removes the stress of worrying about losing all of your deposits & fees that have been paid! 

SOMETHING DIFFERENT AND VERY SPECIAL(click)web photo sash.gif (20636 bytes)

Have your Officiant wear a special Wedding stole embroidered with your names or initials.  How special when you receive it after your ceremony.  Select from several colors and styles.
