These ceremonies have the strength of hundreds of years behind them. They include words your parents and grandparents spoke to each other, cementing their love. Traditional weddings may be either religious or non-religious. The first option usually mentions God at the ceremony's beginning and end, perhaps blessing your rings, while all the remaining sections are non-religious. Weddings derived from various faiths, including Catholic, Jewish and Protestant, are also available because Justice Maryann has studied comparative religious.
Special flourishes personalize your ceremony and add warm, happy memories as well as create fabulous photo-ops. These include the following choices. A Sand Ceremony creates a visual representation of the merging of your two lives into one through the use of colored sand and glass containers. Some people have chosen beach sand from places significant to their relationship. This is a pretty ceremony addition and has the advantage of being safe at an outdoor wedding. Sand also works well with children.
