Your wedding ceremony should be a work of art - a reflection of the two of you - it should speak the words of love that your relationship should stand upon - oh heck, it should be whatever YOU want it to be!
When your reviewing officiants/ministers/pastors - whatever their title may be; make sure to ask how they create your wedding day ceremony and if you can review it before your wedding.
My approach to writing a ceremony is to first ask what you would like; if you don't know that's ok to. We will work together to decide if you would like short and sweet or simple or personal and romantic. Once we know the tone of the ceremony then we can work to create a wedding ceremony that is perfect for your day!
It is my belief that creating your ceremony should be more than me asking you to pick this or that, it should be a discussion, maybe you answer a few questions so I can add a personal tone to it and then we work together to perfect it.
It's your wedding day, take charge of what is said and what your guests will hear during your ceremony.
