Rose Ceremony

A beautiful ceremony about a rose as the 1st gift a couple exchanges after they repeat their vows. I use beautiful long stem artificial red roses decorated for the event. If the couple requests live flowers they may supply them.

Readings can be included as one of the 3 add-ons package.


Blended Family Ceremony

In reality, marriage is often much more than just the couple. It is the coming together of family and friends. When the bride and/or groom have children, it is appropriate for the children to be included in the wedding ceremony. With children present, the wedding ceremony also becomes the proclamation of a new family or a "family wedding."

Adding a family Sand ceremony is another way to symbolize the joining of the bride and groom and their family together.


Jumping the Broom Ceremony

Jumping the broom has its ancestral roots deep in the heart of Africa. It's original purpose and significance has been lost over the years because of the association with slavery.

The broom ceremony pays homage to those who came before us and paved the way. It is said that broom jumping comes from an African Tribal Marriage Ritual of placing sticks on the ground representing the couple's new home together

The broom in Asante and other Akan cultures also held spiritual value and symbolized sweeping away past wrongs or removing evil spirits.

This is where the broom comes into play regarding marriage. Brooms were waved over the heads of marrying couples to ward off spirits. The couple would often but not always jump over the broom at the end of the ceremony.

A special decorative broom is required. I supply them for an additional charge or the family can bring their own.

Ceremony can be included as one of the 3 add-ons package.


Handfasting Ceremony

Handfasting is a rural folkloric and neopagan custom, initially found in western European countries, in which a couple hold a commitment ceremony.

In the Middle Ages a betrothal was a much more serious and binding than a modern engagement. The betrothal was not the point at which the couple first decided they would get married. Rather, it was a formal ceremony where the couple exchanged promises to marry in the future and where the marriage contracts were finally agreed upon.

The officiant will place a cord over the couple's hands. It may be loosely tied symbolizing life. This identifies that the handfasting is a commitment. One year and a day after being handfasted, the couple may return to the presider and repeat their vows with the cord or cloth tightly knotted. This symbolizes the intent to have a permanent relationship. This ritual is the source of the expression "to tie the knot."

Handfasting can be included as one of the 3 add-ons package.
