“Why Marriage?” by Mari Nichols

This wonderful poem by Mari Nichols reads like a marriage vow. We feel the poem speaks wonderfully of the depth of the beauty of love in relationship and the tremendous freedom marriage can provide.

Because to the depths of me, I long to love one person,
With all my heart, my soul, my mind, my body…
Because I need a forever friend to trust with the intimacies of me.
Who won’t hold them against me,
Who loves me when I am unlikable,
Who see the small child in me, and
Who looks for the divine potential of me
Because I need to cuddle in the warmth of the night
With someone who thanks God for me,
With someone I feel blessed to hold…
Because marriage means opportunity
To grow in love, in friendship…
Because marriage is a discipline
To be added to a list of achievements…
Because marriages do not fail, people fail
When they enter into marriage
Expecting another to make them whole…
Because knowing this,
I promise myself to take full responsibility
For my spiritual, mental and physical wholeness.
I create me.
I take half of the responsibility for my marriage
Together, we create our marriage.
Because with this understanding
The possibilities are limitless.


We hope you have enjoyed your visit.

Vows: Jennifer and James

Last weekend we celebrated the wedding of high school sweethearts whose lives went away from each other and came back 35 years later via Facebook. These are the vows James and Jennifer shared  in their ceremony, before their family and friends.

James’ Vows to Jennifer:

Because of you
I dare to dream again.
Because of you:
I laugh,
I smile,
I live again.
Because of you, I look forward with great joy and excitement exploring our new life together and spending the rest of my life with you growing as a husband and wife should.
Today, I stand here with you. in front of our family and friends, vowing to love you with all my heart and soul.
I vow to support and comfort you through all of life’s ups and downs.
I offer you all that I am and to be true and faithful as long as we both shall live.
I love you.


Jennifer’s vows to James:

James, I found you in the midst of a very rough time in my life.
You were the strength that helped me through it.
When I cried, you wiped my tears and held me close, always assuring me you would always be there for me, for this I am grateful.
It’s funny how life is, in the midst of pain,
Love still finds its way to overcome and conquer and join hearts, for this I am grateful.

I love you James with all my heart and soul,
You are my partner, my friend, my confidante,
For this I am grateful.
Today I stand in front of you, and our family and friends vowing my love and commitment to our unity of marriage.
I also promise my hand will always be holding yours.
Standing besides you through all of life’s joys and life’s challenges.
For as long as we both shall live.
I love you

Why Your Wedding Ceremony Must Be Personal

The entire experience of your wedding day is about the two of you, your marriage and the marriage ceremony, otherwise there would be no need for all the rest of the things that go along with a wedding day. The ceremony MUST be personalized, it must reflect who you are. No two couples are alike. No two loves are alike. No two relationships are alike. Each couple is totally their own beautiful reflection of love. A ceremony is the ritual framework that attempts to articulate with words, music, colors, design, location and symbols the immense mystery of your two hearts in love.

We have been personalizing weddings ceremonies for years. We are so tremendously grateful to be able to create with a couple their ritual which best reflects their love. IMAGINE, if every wedding ceremony celebrated were the same, what a flat, one-dimensional world we would have. Life is too full, rich and abundant to have the same old, same old – Celebrate we must with creativity, color, personality, life, spirit and LOVE!
