    Happy New Year - Hello 2017

    Hello to all you happy couples who may have said yes to a proposal recently. Would love to hear from you and see what we can do now that you have mutually decided to say, "I do." 

    Such an exciting time. Savor every moment of being totally engaged. Do try and enjoy the process of picking your celebrant, your venue,... your day is yours so don't let it become a chore!

    Now for a few of favorites though each and every one of my couples are a favorite in their own way!

     When the officiant gets moved by the vows being shared you know they are "WOW VOWS!" Two teachers in love, Caitie and Justin, did not hold back as they vowed to each other at Chequessett Yacht and Beach Club in Wellfleet this past summer. Laughter and tears and lots and lots of love!

    Such a loving family wedding at Borsari Gallery in Dennis. The children were a dream and what a gorgeous happy couple!

    Weddings on Cape Cod: Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall......


                                        The Prowers Pretty Little Winter Wedding at Chatham Bars Inn

     The winter wind has abated. It's breath warmng even though the branches are still bare and will remain so until well after any threat of snow. Most springs on Cape Cod the winter holds on tenaciously. This has been a gentle fallow season. It seems like life itself is percolating right beneath our feet; earth softening;crocuses peaking.We all say, "Yes!"

     Ceremonies in draft form like seedlings sprouting line my desktop. Today I will print out one so it takes form. Onto pretty paper words will form. The paper is from Thompson's Printing a local business in Orleans. One ream is called 'Blooming Pink' the other entitled, 'Botanical.'

    Weddings are about beauty. Close to Summer Solstice, Sarah and Justin wed at Wequassett Resort on Round Cove.

    And wedding ceremonies are about words of truth and fidelity.

     The Meaning of Marriage- Wendell Berry The meaning of marriage begins by giving our word. We cannot join ourselves to one another without giving our word….

      Consent:   Have you come here today of your own free will to give each other your word in Marriage?    “We Have.”  Please turn and take each other’s hands and share the vows of marriage.


     A marriage of words and images, symbols and rituals that make the ancient rite of marriage like the rite of spring; a testimony of hope and love that renews and transfoms everything it touches


    "For love is matchless in majesty, it has no parallel in power and there is no darkness it cannot dispel."

    Meher Baba

     

     Happy New Moon Eclipse and St. Patrick's Day.  Enjoy these last days of winter before the busy as a bee days of Spring sweep in.

    This Cape Cod Wedding Celebrant reflects on 2015

     

    It has been a sweetly sincere ceremony season. I've enjoyed presiding over

     low key weddings that leave everyone on a high note.


    "To be natural "as John O'Donohue says, "is to be holy.  I'm loving the authenticity of the couples who seek my services for weddings and later for baby blessings. So what is this quality of being authentic? I see it in my couples who talk to me not only about their wedding but their hopes for a contented married life.

    As for me I hope I am congruent and authentic in my approach to presiding over weddings. I can authentically claim to be both rustic and vintage- more and more so with each passing year. With great gratitude I come from a place of contentment after 27 years of marriage. When I get impatient with my husband he reminds me of my own words of wedding wisdom. And to be totally honest somedays I think about what I gave my word to 27 years ago. Giving your word to each other is the heart and soul of a ceremony. As Wendell Berry reminds us. "The meaning of marriage begins with the giving of our word...."

     So stay true to yourself and to one another. Allow yourself to be content and grateful as I am to all of you for making 2015 such a wonderful wedding season. 

                                    Remember: Don't Worry. Be Married and

                                                       THANK YOU

    Hooray for Marriage= and Happy Anniversary to June Bride and Grooms

    David and I just celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary yesterday. We walked to Sheep Pond. I had a silky swim. David told me that in the Bill Bryson book he is reading that there is something in certian waters that makes it feel silky. Whatever that is, Sheep Pond has it.We then had a delicious dinner at Bucca's in Harwich- very romantic and fun. 

    Our marriage is in a good place right now. I would say we are on an even keel. Far from rocking the boat my husband's retirement has brought us closer. We are one of those couples who are so very different;not each other's best friends. Now that we are figuring out how to be better spouses it feels like the friendship is growing. 

    Hey before I go on let's give a cheer for Marriage = Equality. To all the couples especially from the South, who came to Cape Cod to wed, I want to say Hooray! Y'all really means you ALL.

     Rainer Marie Rilke-On marriage--

    The point of marriage is not to create a quick commonality by tearing down all boundaries; on the contrary, a good marriage is one in which each partner appoints the other to be the guardian of his solitude, and thus they show each other the greatest possible trust. and once the realization is accepted that even between the closest people infinite distances exist, a marvelous living side-by-side can grow up for them, if they succeed in loving the expanse between them, which gives them the possibility of always seeing each other as a whole and before an immense sky.

     

    After 27 I am happy to say that "I still do." I am also more committed than ever to my marriage and yours.

    As for the traditional vows they are essential "to have and to hold, from this day forward, in sickness and in health, for better or for worse, in good times and in bad ......." Have fun with your personalized vows but remember the essence of the ceremony is the promise to be a faithful spouse for a lifetime. That makes picking up your socks sound really simple!

    Don't Worry. Be Married,

    Love and Happy Anniversary to all you June Bride and Grooms.
