In today's world, many couples consider themselves "spiritual" not "religious". As you consider your wedding ceremony, you may or may not want to include prayer. Traditional ministers and officiants have standard scripts they use to marry couples which may include prayers that may or may not be comfortable for you and your fiance.
My approach is to get to know you and your fiance and your beliefs, values and traditions. Together we create a ceremony that opens your hearts and makes your spirits soar! Spiritual components may include mystical readings from Rumi, Kahlil Gibran, Thich Nhat Hanh just to name a few; Native American rituals; Earth based rituals; Pagan rituals; creating an altar representative of your love and beliefs; Buddhist, Hindu or Toltec rituals or rituals from other Eastern traditions. These sacred rituals connect us in one-ness as we acknowledge Namaste: My soul recognizes your soul. I honor the love, light, beauty, truth and kindness within you, because it also resides within me. In sharing these things, there is no distance and no difference between us. We are the same, we are one.
I look forward to hearing more about your Spiritual beliefs and co-creating a beautiful and meaningful ceremony for your wedding day. Namaste, Jen Paul of Life Passages
