    Interfaith Beliefs

Many couples today have interfaith beliefs. This can make your wedding ceremony all the more interesting as we can incorporate your particular traditions into an entirely non-denominational celebration. I have performed ceremonies which include Jewish traditions with Filipino traditions or the jumping of the broom with hand fasting.

During this non-religious wedding ceremony I addressed the audience before their wedding vows and requested that all the couples' friends and family support them in their new lives with one another. The whole audience said "We do!"


  Start Your Own Traditions

Please feel free to incorporate any traditions, whether they be religious or just your own thoughts, into your marriage ceremony. You are beginning a new life and with your ceremony you may want to start your own traditions. I've introduced the sage blessing into a wedding, where we lit bundles of sage and passed them throughout the audience as a reminder of cleansing and beginning anew.
