Reverened Michael Summers
Native American Ceremonies
“Rev. Michael and Diane,
Thank you both so much for making our big day PERFECT & memorable! I have had family & friends asking for the transcript of our vows! Everyone said it was the best ceremony they have ever attended. The “pre-wedding pep talks” were such a special part! I know it was meant to be that David and I met you both! Thank you for everything!”

IN CLOSING, I OFFER YOU THE CEREMONIAL WORDS OF ONE OF THE EARLY INHABITANTS WHO WERE NATIVE TO THIS BEAUTIFUL LAND:
NOW YOU WILL FEEL NO RAIN…FOR EACH OF YOU WILL BE SHELTER TO THE OTHER. NOW YOU WILL FEEL NO COLD …FOR EACH OF YOU WILL BE WARMTH TO THE OTHER. NOW THERE WILL BE NO MORE LONELINESS …FOR EACH OF YOU WILL BE COMPANION TO THE OTHER. NOW YOU ARE TWO PERSONS, BUT THERE ARE THREE LIVES BEFORE YOU, HIS LIFE, HER LIFE, AND YOUR LIFE TOGETHER.
GO NOW TO YOUR DWELLING PLACE, TO ENTER INTO YOUR DAYS OF YOUR LIFE TOGETHER. MAY BEAUTY SURROUND YOU BOTH IN THE JOURNEY AHEAD AND THROUGH THE YEARS. MAY HAPPINESS BE YOUR COMPANION TO THE PLACE WHERE THE RIVER MEETS THE SUN. AND MAY YOUR DAYS BE GOOD AND LONG UPON THIS EARTH.
