Please keep in mind that the "Wedding Officiant" is the most important element in your wedding. The ideal venue, cake, music, etc., should be second! Without a Wedding Officiant, there is not a wedding!!!
I will be more than happy to attend your wedding rehearsal, but keep in mind that this will incur an additional cost. Additionally, I do not recommend that I attend the rehearsal because you will loose all that "special moment" the day of your wedding.
Traditional ceremonies are 10 - 15 minutes in length, and include an Introduction, Pledges, Love Poem, Vows, Ring Exchange, Pronouncement, and a Unity Candle Ceremony (wind permitting), or a Unity Sand Ceremony. ~ Family Vows ~ Including Children, New Sibling Vows, Children's Gift Ceremony and others.
Ideas for the Ceremony
The Unity Candle or Sand Ceremony (Family Candle or Sand Ceremony also)
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 wedding ring is an outward symbol of an inward change .It represents the bond created through and by the love of the couple. The wedding ring tradition has existed for centuries and demonstrates a visible evidence of the institution of marriage. Much can be added in this portion of the ceremony usually involves the verbal participation of the Bride and Groom during the exchange.
Family Vows ~ Including Children, New Sibling Vows, Children's Gift Ceremony and others.
Many couples are remarrying and want to include their children in the ceremony. There are numerous ways this may be done.
This refers to gift of the hands of each to one another. The officiant makes mention of the Bride and Grooms hands as the hands that will comfort, nurture, care and hold the other person in time of need. This usually takes 1 to 2 minutes.
