Water Vase Ceremony: $50
This ancient, traditional wedding ceremony which honors mother earth through ceramics and water. The importance to ancient cultures of a single vessel, with the sole purpose for wedding ceremony cannot be overstated. In this ceremony, the couple fill a vase with two holes on either side from two containers of water. The single containers representing them both as individuals and all the elements of their past lives. The water mixed in the ceremonial vase representing the couples marriage and the inseparability of both the water and themselves. The Bride and Groom then drink from the water vase as a toast to their union. A couple that can drink simultaneously without spilling a drop is anticipated to have good understandings guide them throughout their marriage.
You may bring your own or borrow our vase.
Blanket Ceremony: $50
In this ancient cultural ceremony, the bride and groom are first wrapped in individual blankets which represent elements of the couples past lives and all that they were. While wrapped in the blankets, the officiant acknowledges the couples union. The individual blankets are then removed and then replaced with a single blanket, representing the couples dedication to each other, covering them together as they enter into their new shared experience. The officiant blesses their union and welcomes them to join together as one on their new life journey filled with peace and happiness.
You may bring your own blankets, 3 are needed, or borrow ours.
