Marriage is one of society's most important social institutions. It represents the exclusive commitment of two individuals to each other, based in love, respect, and mutual support. With marriage come all the financial, social, and legal benefits as well as the obligations of a committed relationship.
For some couples, the marriage ceremony is of religious significance and therefore is most appropriately performed in the more traditional religious setting of church, mosque, or temple with a priest, minister, rabbi, imam, or monk. For others with no particular religious beliefs attached to marriage, a civil ceremony utilizing a Justice of the Peace is appropriate.
As a non sectarian minister, I offer my services to those couples who feel that, although they may not have traditional church affiliation or are not of the same faith, they have certain spiritual needs that are important for them to have expressed in their wedding ceremony.
