How to Plan a Wedding Ceremony Using Skype

Jeremy and Nanci live in Fairbanks, Alaska.  They decided to marry in Snohomish, Washington, so as many family members as possible could attend the wedding.  Kent, their officiant, is located in Seattle, Washington.  Everything worked out beautifully thanks to the phone, email and Skype!

I sent the collection of wordings for ceremonies to the bride and groom and they selected what was right for them.   Then, we had a planning session to make sure all would go well on their special day.

The two have adult children who they wanted to have a role in the ceremony so they decided on a sand ceremony.  
 "Just as the grains of sand are now blended, so are your lives joined. They are combined in such a way they can never be truly separated.  May the union and this connection between all of you bring greater happiness and love into all our lives."

The sand container currently sits nicely in their living room
and receives comments from visitors all the time.
Everything turned out so very well.  Here's what the Mr. and Mrs. though about the experience.
"We wanted an intimate, personal ceremony and assistance in writing our ceremony and vows.  After looking at a few sites and reading your website and talking with you in person, you two felt right for us.  It was clear you truly enjoy what you do.

The suggestion of the sand ceremony was perfect.  Our children loved it.  We truly felt the importance of what it meant to have three of them be a part of the ceremony. 

As a result of working with you, our ceremony was perfect for us!

We would tell couples interested in having you officiate for them that you genuinely are there to support and assist the couple, to make sure their wedding is everything "they" would like it to be ... and more!

Success!  A very happy couples, a very perfect ceremony.  Wishing Nanci, Jeremy and their children much happiness.

Thanks to Bill McNay for the photos.

Love Him, Love Her, Think We'll Get Married In Seattle!

Don't they look happy!  I think "the reveal" is so great.  The bride and groom have a private moment to take in the significance of their impending marriage; to share their joy, their excitement, their anticipation; and, to take photographs that will be treasured for life.

That's what Peter and Lacy decided to do!  Those wise people.

And, they had so much fun.

Then, on to the ceremony at the Washington Athletic Club. 

Loved how Lacy included a momento of her mother, who has passed on, in her bouquet.  Isn't this a wonderful idea?

 The wedding party was all set.

Personal touches + Personal words = Great Wedding Day!

Here's what Lacy loves about Peter:
"You appreciate how important family is to Peter and how caring he is:  he goes above and beyond for everyone he knows.  He is a person you can always rely on:  he listens with an oopen heart and provides a shoulder for you to lean on.  Peter has a good sense of humor and can always make you laugh.  His laughter is contagious and reminds you of your mother.  He is an overall wonderful man and you love him dearly."
And what Peter loves about Lacy:
"You are totally smitten about Lacy:  she is beautiful and filled with good energy.  She has complete confidence in you, which makes you feel good about yourself.  Just being around Lacy is great:  she is encouraging, has a great sense of humor, and get along with everyone.  Lacy is your best friend and you can't image life without her." 
Hand in Hand
Married ... and delighted!!!
Mr. and Mrs!

Also loved the photo booth and guest book, where everyone could create their own message next to their photo.  Always great fun!

Here's one of our pics.
Fell in love with Kent because
he's so cute!!!
Lacy and Peter created a wonderful day, both for themselves and for all their guests.  Many thanks and many blessings for their life together as a married couple!
