One of the many things that I do is perform commitment ceremonies.
I always like to meet the couple and just see who they are and how they interact with one another which that alone upsets people. But I think it is your day and you should have a choice and so should I, because your wedding day should be a pleasant occasion in your life. Also, this is a time in your life when you are not just committing to one day but for the rest of your life and I like to think that I am part of the rest of your life. For this is a time of excitement, preparation and joy. Ups and Downs! I pray for you, with you and for whatever you allow me to. Some people I stay far away others I am a godmother for children it all depends on the couple.
This is a ministry for me and a responsibility before God. So, there is a contract, financial responsibility but there is also a relationship and that is above all else.
As you plan your weddings remember the scriptures but also the teachings of faith. Not everything should be driven by money. It has its place but should not take priority.
Genesis 2:24 That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh. NIV That to me is to me a lifelong process….
As an Ordained minister I can do this in the privacy of your home or a destination wedding all to be discussed when we meet.
