Worship from the Start

by admin on April 23, 2015 in Ceremony Traditions, Music with 2 Comments

Many brides choose to have hymns sung as they walk down the aisle. It’s a beautiful way to tie into the history of sacred tradition as many saints have done before them. Whether a cappella or accompanied, the opening song becomes the intro to the story of the bride and groom’s marriage. At a recent…continued here

Song of Solomon, Sexy and Sacred

by admin on May 30, 2013 in Ceremony Traditions, Scripture with 1 Comment

Friends of mine were so moved by Song of Solomon that they chose passages from this book as their wedding ceremony Scripture reading. They stood next to each other, with the Bible in front of them, and read to each other—in front of the congregation—the words of the lover and the beloved.

Jesus is …

Jesus is patient; Jesus is kind; Jesus is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. He does not insist on His own way; He is not irritable or resentful. Jesus does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. Jesus bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

10 Considerations for Choosing a Bridal Party: #8

by admin on January 3, 2013 in Bridal Party, Ceremony Traditions with No Comments

Especially if the girls walk down by themselves rather than with a corresponding guy, the audience will barely notice that your numbers are uneven. I’ve seen two guys walk a girl back up the aisle, just as I have seen one guy with a girl on each arm.

Cultural Wedding Traditions

by admin on July 12, 2012 in Ceremony Traditions, Family, Reception Traditions, Vows with No Comments

I love ethnic weddings!  Seeing the bride’s and/or groom’s cultural traditions displayed through her and/or his music, attire, ceremony, food, or dancing is an extremely tangible demonstration of keeping a wedding in the personality of the bride and groom.  I truly believe those are the best weddings. I was at a wedding where the bride’s…continued here
