Your ceremony is a significant moment in life; a personal, distinctive statement shared with your family and friends; an intimate ritual celebrating your love and commitment while marking a formal beginning of your new life together. You’ll likely want it to be rich in life, love and laughter and a cherished memory for everyone.
Your celebration lies in the hands of the person performing the ceremony. After all, you might only say those famous two words ("I Do") - but they could say 5000! A great wedding officiant is more that a person in a robe, with a heartfelt presentation. The officiant uses quotes, poetry, humor and his/her own original material to set the tone you expect and keep the participants engaged.
The verbal expression of your vows is an intimate and spiritual event – occurring at your most vulnerable moment. Shouldn’t the wedding official be someone with whom you have a connection?
Whether your ceremony is held in an enormous venue or in the intimacy of your home, your celebrant should craft and deliver a beautiful, custom ceremony with vows that express your interests, dreams and intentions as well as your uniqueness as a couple. The spoken words and rituals on your wedding day should tell your love story and reflect your commitment.
I hope you will explore the Vows and Promises website and then give me a call. Perhaps I am the non-religious wedding ceremony official you are looking for… ? I look forward to finding-out.
