is a key to life!
A renewal of vows ceremony is a meaningful, touching and revivifying
ceremony for yourselves, your children, your families and friends.
Often couples comment how surprisingly romantic it all felt!
It is a wonderful example to set for your children and grandchildren.
Significant anniversaries are an especially appropriate time
for renewing your commitment and love for one another.
We offer a selection of vows, blessings and prayers which are
appropriate for mature love. Some couples choose to take the
very same vows as when they first wed. Others choose to amend,
select or write new vows.
Sometimes new rings are purchased for the occasion. There are
wonderful ways to involve your children and grandchildren. As
with our first time weddings, we offer prayers, readings, rituals
and verse which celebrate every tradition, creed and culture.
My ceremonies serve and celebrate all faiths, colors and cultures.
Spirituality, love, relationship, marriage and family are emphasized.
For couples who have learned the art of marriage we offer some
particularly appropriate readings.
Here The Anniversary Song,
by Naomi Long Madgett:
How good it is to let our memory wander
And travel back across the fruitful years
To count how many miles we've walked together!
On pinnacle of dreams, through vales of tears,
Along the level ground of every day
We've made our way.
In sickness and in health, in joy and sadness,
Together, side by side, sunshine or shade,
We've worked toward common goals, found
In all the hours of which our years are made.
All things were possible because we shared,
Because we cared.
After many years, we still hold dearest
Of all life's blessings anywhere on earth
The trust and honor that we give each other,
The love that gave our other blessings birth.
Praise be that I am yours by plan divine,
That you are mine!
