All ceremonies can be personalized to your wishes. Some couples like to include wording about how they met and what lead them to this special day. They may want to include acknowledgment of children they bring to the marriage or loved ones who have passed.
I am happy to incorporate any religious customs or traditions such as breaking the glass, jumping the broom, handfasting, etc..
You may also like to include a unity element such as, unity sand, candle, glass, wine, love letter, love knot, cross, rose etc...
