Uniting Families Ceremony

“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!

Love

Callie and David”

Children CereomonyUniting Families Ceremony

Blending families with the inclusion of children in the wedding services is important by conducting a uniting families ceremony. Often we think of a marriage as a Bride and Groom be wed as wife and husband.  Marriage to each other is much more than two people joining together in matrimony when there are children from previous relationships or marriages.  It is often a blending of two families coming together as one. With children present, the wedding ceremony also becomes the joining of a new family together with the inclusion of children.

Blending families together with a Uniting Families Ceremony can help in creating life-long bonds between step-siblings knowing that they are part of the union of marriage.
