Wedding Information

We perform various types of Weddings:

Christian: A Christian beautiful ceremony is a ceremony with emphasis as Christ at the center of your marriage; an expression of worship, reflecting joy, celebration, community, respect, dignity and love; a testimony of your live before God, demonstrating your Christian values. These ceremonies generally include prayers and scripture readings.

Traditional: Traditional wedding vows are foundational wedding vows found in every culture and religion around the world. They are the basis for the declarations of faith, love and commitment that marrying couples share with each other. In many cases they are cornerstones to your own custom marriage vows and an inspiration to help you build on the things you want to express from your heart one-to-another.

A Non-denominational Ceremony is typically Christian however it can also be spiritual. The main differentiation is that it does not adhere to any particular denomination (Catholic, Baptist, etc) These ceremonies may have Christian and/or contemporary readings and inserts.

Interfaith/intercultural Ceremonies incorporate traditions, blessings and/or prayers from more than one faith or culture, for example Buddhist or Christian elements, African, Jewish or Hispanic cultures, etc.

A Spiritual Ceremony is a ceremony that often incorporates traditions, blessings, and/or prayers of non-Christian faiths or couples that consider themselves to be spiritual but do not attend a particular church or affiliate with one particular belief.

A Civil Ceremony is a ceremony that doesn't reference God or any other spiritual deity. Civil ceremonies may have traditional or contemporary readings or poems and there are no prayers or blessings.

A Civil Wedding Ceremony is available for those who do not have a church affiliation or perhaps getting married again and do not want a traditional ceremony. Civil ceremonies can be performed in a judge's chambers, registrar's/lawyers office, by the Captain of a ship or venue of your choice, depending on the area in which you wish to get married in. Different laws apply to different states and countries and you can usually find out most of the information from the local court house or City Hall where you wish to be married. Special Requests
