The Ceremony

Burt_Loh_Sept2014_AnnaSawin369My specialty is creating ceremonies that not only reflect what you want to say to the world but, equally important, ceremonies that resonate with your family and friends. And if it’s one thing I’ve managed to do quite well it’s that!!! Over and over my couples and their guests tell me how perfectly I’ve captured them with the words I’ve chosen. But you see, it isn’t just me.

It’s because I work with the couples and it’s because they put their hearts and final stamp of approval on the ceremony that this always turns out great. I am very, very proud of my work and am thrilled with the accolades I’ve received over the years. It makes it all worth while because I know I’m changing lives; one couple at a time.

You will find a variety of ceremonies that simply give you a flavor of what I do. I’ve shortened them in the interest of space and time but it will at least give you a feel for how I operate. This though is NOT one of my ceremonies….though it did make me laugh! 🙂 and I thought you’d enjoy it too!

Dr. Seuss Wedding Vows…

JP: Will you answer me right now
These questions, as your wedding vow?

Groom: Yes, I will answer right now
Your questions as my wedding vow.

JP: Will you take her as your wife?
Will you love her all your life?

Groom: Yes, I take her as my wife,
Yes, I’ll love her all my life.

JP: Will you have, and also hold
Just as you have at this time told?

Groom: Yes, I will have, and I will hold,
Just as I have at this time told,
Yes, I will love her all my life
As I now take her as my wife.

JP: Will you love through good and bad?
Whether you’re happy or sad?

Groom: Yes, I’ll love through good and bad,
Whether we’re happy or sad,
Yes, I will have and I will hold
Just as I have already told,
Yes, I will love her all my life,
Yes, I will take her as my wife!

JP: Will you love her if you’re rich?
Or if you’re poor, and in a ditch?

Groom: Yes, I’ll love her if we’re rich,
And I will love her in a ditch,
I’ll love her through good times and bad,
Whether we are happy or sad,
Yes, I will have, and I will hold
(I could have sworn this has been told!)
I promise to love all my life
This woman, as my lawful wife!

JP: Will you love her when you’re fit,
And also when you’re feeling sick?

Groom: Yes, I’ll love her when we’re fit,
And when we’re hurt, and when we’re sick,
And I will love her when we’re rich
And I will love her in a ditch
And I will love through good and bad,
And I will love when glad or sad,
And I will have, and I will hold
Ten years from now a thousandfold,
Yes, I will love for my whole life
This lovely woman as my wife!

JP: Will you love with all your heart?
Will you love till death you part?

Groom: Yes, I’ll love with all my heart
From now until death do us part,
And I will love her when we’re rich,
And when we’re broke and in a ditch,
And when we’re fit, and when we’re sick,
(Oh, CAN’T we get this finished quick?)
And I will love through good and bad,
And I will love when glad or sad,
And I will have, and I will hold,
And if I might now be so bold,
I’ll love her my entire life,
Yes, I WILL take her as my wife!

JP: Then if you’ll take her as your wife,
And if you’ll love her all your life,
And if you’ll have, and if you’ll hold,
From now until the stars grow cold,
And if you’ll love through good and bad,
And whether you’re happy or sad,
And love in sickness, and in health,
And when you’re poor, and when in wealth,
And if you’ll love with all your heart,
From now until death do you part,
Yes, if you’ll love her through and through,
Please answer with these words:

JP and Groom: I DO!

JP: You’re married now! So kiss the bride,
But please, do keep it dignified.
