It was a beautiful setting…behind me was a beautifully decorated Christmas Tree and on an adjacent table sat a Menorah. I had the honor of officiating the marriage of Dana and Jamie at the Belmont Country Club. They were surrounded by their six teenagers while family and friends witnessed their commitment to each other and their children. I began the ceremony by asking, do you the children of Jamie and Dana give your blessing this evening to your mother and your father as they prepare to pledge to treat each other and you with tenderness, compassion and love in all the years to come? If so, say we do!” The ceremony was built around the theme of family…their similarities and differences that would be respected and celebrated to make family stronger. I so enjoy working with couples to personalize their ceremony and make it all about them!
