Married a great couple with a Lite Spiritual Wedding Ceremony at the McDonnell Conservation Area on Sunday afternoon. The weather was brisk and cool, and the water was running high so we had to camp out on the upper bank for the ceremony. Six family members and friends witnessed the proceedings. Best Wishes Sean & Erika!

Performed a Classic Wedding Ceremony for a nice couple at the hotel this past Saturday. The ceremony was held inside, and that was probably a good thing as it was very windy and quite chilly on the beach! Color was royal blue. All the Best Ryan & Ashley!

My second Halloween day ceremony was on the beach at Ogunquit Beach. The couple was accompanied by their children and a handful of other family members. The ceremony was close to sunset, and it was windy and cold. Still, the intimate nature of the group gave the wedding a cozy feel. Colors were burgundy, gold, and champagne. Congratulations Joshua & Yajaira!

Wed a great couple with a Classic Secular Wedding Ceremony in front of about 60 family and friends this past Saturday evening at the Tuscan Kitchen in Salem. It was a cold and stormy night, this couple’s love kept everyone warm! The ceremony featured a hand-binding ceremony. Here is the text…

“In ancient Celtic culture, couples announce their marriage through what is called a Handbinding. When a couple joins hands and takes on a new life together, their destinies are tied into one future. This tradition includes a cord to symbolize that as husband and wife, Joe and Kelly will be bound together as one family.

Kelly & Joe have chosen to unite their hands and hearts into one life.

Notice that each person is still an individual but now they are working together.

Joe and Kelly, as your hands are bound together now, so your lives and spirits are joined in a union of love and trust. Above you are the stars and below you is the earth. Like the stars, your love should be a constant source of light, and the earth, a firm foundation from which to grow.”

The wedding color was burgundy. Best Wishes Joe & Kelly!
