I have two original rituals that work well with very young children. 1. The bride and groom draw around each others hands, then around the child's hand. The officiant says, "Today is not just a celebration of marriage, it is the beginning of a new chapter as a family." 2. Family bouquet. A vase of greenery is placed at the altar, as the groom passes he places a single flower in the vase, as the bride passes she adds a flower to the vase, then each child places a flower in the vase.
To everything - turn, turn, turn There is a season - turn, turn, turn And a time for every purpose under heaven. This has been a very busy season for the celebrations of life. I want give my blessings to the futures of all loving couples who have allowed me the honor to officiate them in matrimony. Bright moments to all the weddings that are yet to come. For love has its power in which you cant command. But if love finds your worthy it will command you. Sincerely Roland F. Cummins For The Celebrations Of Life
