Theme weddings are a great way to express your individuality. By incorporating your thoughts, dreams,and passions into your personalized wedding ceremony you can make it one that is unique, meaningful and truly reflective of who you are; both individually and as a couple. This particular wedding did not find me in Greece, but the Amphitheater at beautiful Jackson's Mill in Weston, West Virginia was magically transformed as family and friends sat enthralled with the Greek flavor that surrounded them as Kristen and Scott pledged their marriage vows. As Kristen walked down the aisle dressed in her beautiful Greek Goddess style wedding gown, the tone was set for one of the most beautiful ceremonies I have ever had the occasion to officiate. Their wedding was steeped with Greek heritage and tradition, with the highlight of the ceremony being when Scott's father performed the exchange of Stephana. For thousands of years, people in Greece have been crowned with wreaths, signifying achievement. The traditional reading is from Psalm 8:5 "For thou hast made them a little lower than the angels, and have crowned them with glory and honor." At weddings the wreaths signify the love in a couple's home and give honor to the spark of divinity that resides within them both. This is a symbol of how in marriage it is our higher selves that the couple promises to one another and the very best that they have to give. These wreaths, called "Stephana", are bound by a single cord; a cord of love and commitment. The pearls represent romance and sweet blessings. As Kristen and Scott were crowned, I spoke a blessing over their home and marriage with each exchange of the Stephana, and, as I did, they were forever united as one. The ceremony ended with a special sand ceremony in which Kristen and Scott's mothers poured sand in the bottom of a larger vase representing the foundation they had laid for them as parents, following which the Bride and Groom continued to fill the glass with their own individual containers of sand. Just as the grains of sand can no longer be separated, neither can Kristen and Scott. Like the wind, like the sand, they are one. I would like to extend a special thank you to Kristen, Scott and their families for the wonderful privilege of being a part of this special Celebration of Love and for all the beautiful memories that will forever be a part of who I am.

Each of my ceremonies are custom-written and personalized to your specifications and can include any number of add-ons to make your wedding day exactly as you want it. I have several you may choose from or if you have an idea that you would like to incorporate, we can certainly do that. Give me a call and let's talk. I will do everything within my power to make your ceremony totally stress free so that all you have to do is smile, say "I do", and enjoy your day. :) I look forward to the possibility of working with you. http://www.sweetsongministries.com/id...
