Civil/Secular – Do you want a civil ceremony? It contains no religious wording. Your ceremony will consist of meaningful words that speak to your heart. You are able to speak your vows to each other in your own personal words or I will provide you with words to repeat. Your wedding ceremony time ranges from 15 to 30 minutes.
Do you want a religious ceremony? We can incorporate religious poems, wordings, Unity Cross Ceremony, Candle Ceremony, Bible verses, etc. Some couples choose to add a candle ceremony as well or any additional ceremony of your choice. Again, it’s all about the two of you. Do you already have children and want to get them involved? I encourage you to include your children whether it’s mentioning their name in your wedding ceremony or participating. There are several beautiful ways to give your wedding ceremony a very warm, loving and meaningful moment. Your ceremony, including an additional representation, will last about 30 to 40 minutes depending on what you choose.
Are you wanting an elopement? Coming in from out-of-state? New Orleans or Baton Rouge? Let’s make it legal and still meaningful for both of you. Let’s make it special. Whatever words you choose that touches your heart, we will make it happen. If you are coming in from out of state and getting married in New Orleans I am able to waive your 24-hour waiting period. Just go to the Orleans Parish Clerk of Court’s office, obtain your license and I will waive it for you. Bring it to your wedding ceremony and I as your wedding officiant/wedding minister will provide the paperwork. If you are eloping in Baton Rouge it’s a little different. If you do not meet the 24-hour waiting period, then a Judge is required to waive your waiting period.
Are you as a couple wanting to combine both of your religious backgrounds? This is called an interfaith ceremony. Everyone can get involved and have a beautifully blended ceremony. This is very satisfying to the couple and both families and makes everyone happy. I will ask you to provide beliefs from both sides of the family and I will incorporate it into one beautifully written wedding ceremony. You are able to get both sides of the family involved. It is nicely done and usually lasts about 30 minutes.
Spiritual? What are you feeling? What does your heart tell you? Spiritual ceremonies are very special and meaningful. Do you have heart-warming words that mean so much to the two of you? Would you like to share something with your guests that is unique and speaks to your heart? We can make that happen of course. Whatever your heart desires it will be said with love. Your ceremony may last 15 to 30 minutes.
