Ceremonies

I want you to have a ceremony that is most appropriate for you. I have several templates and sample materials which I will make available to you upon signing a service contract. In addition to the standard introduction, vows and exchanging of rings, ceremonies include a variety of special features, such as:

  • Special Blessings
  • Quotes
  • Poems
  • Song Lyrics

Vows can be standard such as the ones below. Some couples like to write their own vows, a special touch which further personalizes the ceremony. Sample vows:

Sample 1:
I, (name), take you, (name), to be my friend, my lover, the (mother/father) of my children and my (husband/wife). I will be yours in times of plenty and in times of want, in times of sickness and in times of health, in times of joy and in times of sorrow, in times of failure and in times of triumph. I promise to cherish and respect you, to care and protect you, to comfort and encourage you, and stay with you, for all eternity.

Sample 2:
I, [name], choose you [name] to be my [husband/wife], to respect you in your successes and in your failures, to care for you in sickness and in health, to nurture you, and to grow with you throughout the seasons of life.
