I truly love sharing stories about the wonderful couples I work with, the amazing wedding ceremonies we create together, and the results of wedding days that are full of love, humor, touching moments, and pure joy! If you're looking for shorter posts with photos, please be sure to "Like" my Facebook page, A Lovely Ceremony -- which has a lot of posts and photos from weddings I've officiated!
When a passion and a career combine, it's a wonderful thing! My job is never, ever boring -- I can truly state that I never do the same wedding ceremony twice. Yes, it takes more time to create a new ceremony for every couple that I work with -- but since each couple I work with is different, with a different story, different interests, and different desires for what they want included in their wedding ceremony, it's necessary to work with them to create a unique script that is truly "fit" to the two of them.
Of course, some themes are very popular, although the wording changes for each ceremony -- examples are Star Wars, Sci-Fi, pets, hobbies, and, of course, a couple's "story" -- other elements can include a special reading or verse that has meaning to the couple, inclusion of children or other family members in the ceremony -- the list is endless! As we work together and get to know one another, the couples and I come up with some wonderful ideas -- many times it's they who make the unique suggestions, and not me!
So, to end this post, I'll wish you all a wonderful 2016, filled with good health, good fortune -- and maybe a joyful wedding!
