Some couples with children were faced with medical or financial challenges and in some cases a death of a family member requiring them to postpone a formal wedding ceremony. Some couples have children from a prior marriage and are now creating a blended family. Including children in the wedding ceremony, typically by incorporating a meaningful wedding ritual like a “Unity Sand Ceremony” or “Hand Blessing” is a meaningful way to say, “We love you and solemnizing our union includes you.”
Here’s some feedback from a couple in the photo of two young children we invited the grandparents to bring to the altar for a “Hand Blessing Water Ceremony”.
“We were grateful to find Lucinda when searching for a Minister for our wedding. Lucinda was very easy to work with and through a collaborative effort we were able to create a ceremony that reflected who we are as a couple. She was an amazing resource when it came to finding a way to incorporate our 2 young sons into the ceremony. Our guests raved about what a touching ceremony it was.”
