YOUR WEDDING CEREMONY
"The wedding ceremony should be special and reflect the Bride and Groom and who they truly are. This is a powerful, sacred beginning to a couple's life together and one that they and their families will remember for the rest of their lives. I tune into their hearts and spirits creating a deeply heartfelt union." --- Rev Libby Kelson-Fulcher D.D.
"The ceremony you devised and spoke to us on our special day were some of the biggest, strongest, most powerful words I have ever heard. It's like you knew us, and yet we had never met ....."...Rick and Kathy Sleckman...ILL
Dear Rev Libby --- Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for such a wonderful ceremony! Your beautiful words were such a gift and a wonderful start to our new life together as husband and wife. Best. April and Jessie Gazulo... San Franciso CA
In each moment of love is found freedom and the divine. I aim to create a beautiful, ultra romantic experience, whatever your beliefs, so that your wedding is a moving meaningful experience and one that also changes you, deeply touching your hearts and the hearts of any guests. A message for you both is hidden within the words to assist you in your amazing journey together. I offer words that speak to your love and friendship and how important they are. The final words spoken are a very special Hawaiian blessing for you both." --- Rev Libby Kelson-Fulcher, D.D.
"During our ceremony I was looking into your eyes as you were speaking to me and to be honest, I was awestruck. Not just at the unique shade of color of them, but by how calm it made me feel. The eyes truly are the windows to the soul, and as far as I could tell, yours is genuine, patient, kind and good....Diane and Brian Richardson CO
We include various Hawaiian traditions. We perform a lei exchange ceremony which is a very sweet Hawaiian tradition in which you place a lei around each other, kiss each other while I give you the significance of it. You will find this a uniquely intimate moment that you cannot experience anywhere else in the world.
You can write your own vows if you wish and we will give you samples to start you off or you can hand it all over to us to create for you. You can add anything into the ceremony that is special and important to you.
Let me thank you again for an incredibly moving and touching ceremony. Both Todd and I, as well as our families, feel blessed to have been married by a minister who was able to bring us together at one time and open our hearts to His energy and love..... to have seen them so energized by a spiritual gathering, still amazes me. Corinna & Todd O'Day .... CA
YOUR RENEWAL OF MARRIAGE VOWS CEREMONY
The most honoring acknowledgement to each other and the life you have created together is to "want to do it all over again". Even though the love that you share now is different from the love you experienced the first time you married.
....."I still feel what I felt then, but now it's so much more; and now I know that we are forever. Our love will keep on going and growing, no matter what"...
What greater gift can you give to your children and their children, your family and friends, as you again declare your love and devotion to each other; this time with them alongside, sharing in this amazing experience of your unending commitment. This is a deeply moving event that your children will take with them into their marriage as they see the deep dedication of your love for each other that continues, as do the years.
The Renewal of Vows ceremony is a revitalizing, enriching, meaningful and intimate affair, bringing your marriage to another new level. So many people recognize the importance of updating and re-affirming their vows. They are as creative and unique to each as is the wedding ceremony. I work with you to customize yours. You can create your own personal vows if you wish or let me take care of it for you.
