Performed a Custom Wedding Ceremony and attended the rehearsal (on Thursday) for a great couple in front of about 150 family and friends at the Country Club on Friday evening. Colors were grey, slate blue, and silver. Congratulations Tony & Erin!
Later on that Saturday afternoon, I performed a Spiritual Wedding Ceremony for a fantastic couple and their children in North Hampton. This ceremony featured a Puzzle Joining Ceremony that celebrated the union of the bride and groom and their children into one family. Each member of the family held a puzzle piece that fit into a specific place in the puzzle, and placed it in that spot on my cue, in essence, completing the puzzle. Here is the script used for that ceremony…
“Lisa and Mike, you are making a commitment to share the rest of your lives with each other and honor your children (Children’s Names) as well. Today, your family relationship will be symbolized through the placing of these individual puzzle pieces into our puzzle picture; One puzzle piece, representing you, Mike and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be, one puzzle piece representing you, Lisa, and all that you were and all that you are, and all that you will ever be; and another puzzle piece for each child.
These children will share in this marriage. The gathering of this new family will have a deep influence on them. We know that in order for a home to be a happy one, it is essential that there be love and understanding between the children and the adults being wed. As you each hold your puzzle piece the separate puzzle pieces represent your lives to this moment; individual and unique. As you combine puzzle pieces together in the puzzle, your lives also join together as one family.
You may now place your pieces in the puzzle symbolizing the uniting of the children and bride and groom into one.
Just as these puzzle pieces will never be separated from the larger puzzle picture, so will your marriage and your family be.”
The couple recited personalized vows. Colors were burgundy and navy. All the Best Mike & Lisa!

Performed a Classic Wedding Ceremony for a great couple on Marginal Way late Saturday afternoon in front of a small group of family and friends.
