by Dayna Reid

Book Image Not Available
Overview
“Sacred Ceremony: Create and Officiate Personalized Wedding Ceremonies,” brings the focus back to the real purpose of a wedding … not the cake, the dress or the centerpieces, but the sacred agreement between two people that defines their marriage. In step-by-step, informative chapters, Dayna Reid describes the elements of a wedding ceremony from beginning to end, and the choices people can make with each element. “Sacred Ceremony” includes a wealth of wording and ceremony selections, to celebrate diverse styles, beliefs and traditions, from Christian to Zen, to the simple declarations of love that transcend tradition.
Description
Practical help for selecting the right words for your wedding, from pure suggestions to full sample ceremonies. A step-by-step overview of the many possible elements that can be included in a ceremony, from approval and dedication blessings, to the declaration of intent and pronouncement (the only legal stipulations involved), to vows and the exchange of rings, to the kiss and the close with abundant samples inspired by the spiritual or nonspiritual, traditional or alternative, biblical scripture, Native American blessings and prayers, Buddhist homilies, rabbinical teachings, Irish blessings and toasts; Armenian, Hawaiian, Inuit; Rumi, Oscar Levant, Kierkegaard; song lyrics, movies, children's books, television. Readers are encouraged to broaden the ceremony with personal touches, such as the ringing of little brass bells instead of the shower of rice or birdseed. Lastly, Dayna Reid takes on the bureaucracy; obtaining license, filing paperwork, officiating.
About the author
Dayna Reid, Author and Minister. She has officiated weddings for over 12 years. Her love for people and the desire to provide couples with a non-judgmental and personalized approach to selecting the words spoken at their wedding inspired her to seek ministry ordination and to write the book "Sacred Ceremony." Although Dayna personally believes in God, she also believes, "Everyone has to find their own way in this world, including any beliefs they may have about the mysteries. Because truly, all we really have is a faith in what we believe to be true."
