Types of Spiritual Weddings We Officiate:

Examples of our ceremony options:
+Use of Rose petals encircling a couple to symbolize eternal love where there is no beginning and no end

+Reading of poetry i.e Dante, "the Prophet," the Apache blessing, Kahlil Gibran

+Unity candles: 2 lighted candles symbolize your separate lives, lighting the center candle together represents your 2 lives joined into one light.
+Sand Ceremony- 2 different colored sands are poured into one to represent the couple joining as one
+Children Services- yours, mine & ours- services which include children
+Rose Ceremony: The couple gives each other a red rose in the ceremony as their first gift. A red rose means "I love you."
+Vow Renewals: i.e. on the beach at sunset. A couple publicly recommits to their relationship by expressing their enduring love for one another. A sentimental rather than an official legal event, a vow renewal is a way for a couple to commemorate an important milestone, such as a major wedding anniversary or important personal milestone.
+Second Marriage Vows: Couples are strongly encouraged to write their own wedding vows for their second marriage ceremony. They are thus more meaningful and personal. Self-created wedding vows can be a source of strength and inspiration for the lifetime of your marriage. When writing your own wedding vows keep in mind what your marriage means to you and describe what makes your relationship wonderful.
The decision to baptize a child is entirely up to the parents. Many times the baby is baptized into the faith of his/her guardians. For those who do not claim any particular religion, but worship God in a spiritual way, they may choose to have their child baptized with light or love.
America families are composed of many religious backgrounds or none at all. Many interfaith couples are seeking private rituals that will honor the religious philosophies of both parents
Anyone at any age can be baptized, and it is not necessary that the ritual of baptism takes place in a church.
The baptism ritual can be performed in a home, hall, park, etc. However, the place you select should be special. So when your child looks back on it, he/she will be proud of where it was held and how it was executed.
We offer customized baby ceremonies so that you can incorporate your beliefs into the celebration.
+ We prefer to focus on the delight of the child's birth to all present, and the blessings that that child will bring into the world. We celebrate the child born in Original Blessing not original sin.
+We will pray for protection, health and wholeness, fulfillment, happiness and long life.
+We will use rose petals or Holy water to bless the child.
A house blessing is an ancient tradition. It energies your home with positive energy into your home. If you bless your home and lavish it with love, it becomes a gracious holder of your dreams. A house blessing allows your home to flourish with love, harmony, health, happiness and prosperity.
+ Pink candle blessing which symbolizes love and kindness and invite these energies into your home.
+Smudging Blessing-stating intention to promote positive energy in each room
+Holy water blessing
+Prayer and positive energy to sanctify, dedicate, and protect a home or house.
