Ceremonies,Vows, Rituals, Poems and Prayers
This is your very special day, feel free to be creative and make it personal and unique at no additional cost. I am more than happy to write a specifically unique ceremony for you. You can view a few samples of those by clicking HERE. But if you wish to write or piece together your own, or use an already written ceremony, this is the page to start. I have provided below, links that contain samples and ideas for your ceremony. They offer a variety of choices to give you ideas. So that you may easily create and personalize your wedding and add your choice of ceremonies, rituals, vows, readings, blessings, scripture and poetry.
