There are no rules when it comes to your wedding. There are two major questions that need to be asked:
What do you really want out of this day?
When you look back, what do you want to remember?
I want your wedding ceremony to be focused on what you are looking for in the ceremony. I have several options and models, both traditional and modern, or we can create something new. Two things that I do strongly recommend are that you write your own vows and that you each email me a brief description of why you love each other. Your marriage ceremony is entirely centered upon your friends and families witnessing the vows you are making to each other for the rest of your lives, so I insist upon each of you taking the time to think through them and put them in your own words. The email with the description of why you love each other will help me shape the ceremony to be more personal.
