The process of getting legally married is the same for everyone. Obtain a marriage license from the county clerk, sign the license with a wedding officiant, and return the license. It's paperwork. People do it every day.
The sacred act of marrying is completely different and unique to each individual couple. There is a change that is made in the hearts of two people when they fall in love, another when they decide to marry, and another when they actually marry.
Many couples feel they are already married in their hearts and nothing else is really necessary. There is no ceremony or party that could enhance the experience they are having.
Some couples choose to have a spiritual experience on their wedding day. It may be in a church with their religious leader surrounded by their church family, or a spiritual celebration surrounded by like-minded individuals.
To these couples, the love between two people is a sacred gift from their creator and the ceremonial act of marriage is an important part of how they take their place in their community in a new way.
Now you have lit a fire and that fire should not go out. The two of you now have a fire that represents love, understanding and a philosophy of life. It will give you heat, food, warmth, and happiness. This new fire represents a new beginning – a new life and a new family. The fire should keep burning; you should stay together. You have lit the fire for life, until old age separates you.
How you choose to ceremonially commit to one another is completely up to you. As a wedding officiant, I want to support you in your choices and help you make your vision a reality.
You may choose a traditional ceremony, giving deeper meaning to the ritual of marriage, or you may choose your own perfect words to express how you feel.
There is nothing more satisfying in the work I do than helping a couple marry each other. As a wedding officiant, I facilitate your interaction. It's the two of you and the love between you that makes the sacred magic happen.
The words, the scent of the flowers, the rings you exchange the, the location, the weather, the music, it all works together to make your wedding.
As I walk, as I walk
The right music can set the tone of any wedding. It might be the song you were singing along to during a joyride or road trip when you looked at each other and knew you were in love.
It may be the first song you danced to, or the song you were both talking about on your first date when you thought, "Wow! I thought I was the only person that listened to that band!"
Perhaps, the two of you simply enjoy being together without talking, listening to relaxing or uplifting music in the background.
