Marriage: A Celebration of Love

Your wedding is very special.  You need awesome photos, fabulous food, and marvelous music.  But you also need a soulful ceremony to remind you that when the photos fade, the food is digested and the music vanishes , marriage sustains and thrives.  I can provide you with a spiritual ceremony, tailored to your specific needs, that will make your wedding wonderful and marriage a lasting covenant.
