There are so very many ways to make your wedding day your own. From the time you were young, you probably had some idea of what you wanted your day to be like. Your partner probably did as well! Now that there are two of you, there can be a blending of your ideas to create something that truly reflects your personal style, your spiritual beliefs and the love and life you share.
I perform themed weddings often! Do the two of you have a love of all things western or Hawaiian? Then why not have a western or Hawaiian themed wedding? Perhaps you both love the ocean. How about a nautical theme? Want to get married at a vineyard? No problem!
For instance, if planning a western theme, tie the knot outdoors. The wedding party could wear Western boots or hats, you could ride up to the altar on horseback, you can do a unity ceremony using rope and serve pulled pork sandwiches with beans or host a pig roast. Are you more nautical? Why not say your vows by a lake, on a boat or in a stream? You can do a unity ceremony using a weaver's hitch, lake water or sand. Serve seafood, walleye or lake trout. Always dreamed of a wedding in a vineyard? I can create a unity ceremony using wine. Hold it mid-morning and serve grapes with a selection of cheeses, wine and crackers. Instead of feeding each other a piece of wedding cake, why not mash some grapes the old fashioned way?
Whatever is special about the two of you, I can help you create a theme and write a wedding ceremony around it. I work with you to write a ceremony that completely reflects what you want your special day to say to each other, to your guests, and what will make the two of you feel like your hearts and souls have been joined together like no other.
