Weddings with children…two this weekend!

Tomorrow I will be performing Jamila and August’s wedding.  It will be an intimate ceremony in my home and their children are included in the ceremony.  It’s always fun to watch the children’s faces when they see Mommy and Daddy saying special words to each other…and feeling important too, as they are part of the ceremony.  Sometimes children are part of  the introduction, sometimes, the children give the mother to the father…sometimes the children hold the rings, and sometimes vows to the children are made as well. 

This Sunday, I will be in Gig Harbor performing the wedding for Rebecca and Brandon. Rebecca and Brandon will be creating a new blended family with their new 8-week old daughter and both the bride and groom will be bringing a child of their own, two boys, into the marriage. It was fun to hear the excitement in Brandon’s voice as he made the arrangements for this last-minute wedding…he’s waited a long time but because of various life turns, never got the big wedding off the ground.  I didn’t hear a drop of disappointment in that…only happiness as they will finally have the ceremony they have waited for.  Another lovely weekend in the life of a Celebrant!
