Informations you'll need
It is my belief that each couple should have a wedding as unique as they are. The ceremony should include all the elements that put their uniqueness into a very special perspective. If your religious backgrounds differ, each should be able to include those parts of each religious ceremony that mean the most to you and your families. If you are spiritual, rather than religious, I also have ceremonies that speak to that belief. So, have fun, be creative and enjoy the process of creating your ceremony. Here are some samples that I have written!
Ceremony Sample 1
MINISTER: With great joy, we come together to join this man, Scott and this woman, Anne, as husband and wife. We are here, not only to witness their commitment to each other, but also to wish them every happiness in their future life together.
Scott and Anne within its framework of commitment and loyalty, marriage enables the establishment of a home, where through trust, patience and respect, the love and affection, which you have for each other, may develop into a deep and lasting relationship. We, who are witnessing this marriage, hope that despite the stresses inevitable in any life, your Love, and Respect for each other, your trust and understanding of each other, will increase your contentment and heighten your joy in living.

MINISTER: Good evening! We are gathered here today, not to witness the beginning of what will be, but rather what already is! We do not create this marriage, because we cannot. We can and do, however, celebrate with Scott and Anne the wondrous and joyful occurrence that has already taken place in their lives.
Marriage is a supreme sharing of experience and an adventure in the most intimate of human relationships. It is a joyous union of two people whose friendship and mutual understanding have flowered into romance. Today, Scott and Anne proclaim their love and commitment to each other and these witnesses. We gather to rejoice, with, and for them, in the new life they now begin together.
