wedding & commitment ceremonies

there comes a time, when your heart opens to another so fully, so deeply & so completely- that you consciously and joyfully choose to celebrate the union you share in ceremony.  while there are countless details to get swept away with in planning for a wedding- there is nothing more essential than the ground on which the two of you will stand on that day and the commitments you will make to each other.  the vows you take and commitments you make are a way for love to express itself through you- in word, in thought & in action. 

laurieG considers it an honor to share with you in creating a ceremony that is unique and reflects each of you as individuals and the relationship you share. in preparing to stand with you on that day, laurieG offers the following:  meeting with the couple : : drafting of customized ceremony and vows with options for rituals to incorporate (you have the option to read & revise or be surprised) : : (optional) preWedding yoga session (for one or both partners with or without participation of bridal party) : : officiating of ceremony.

"Laurie, We are so glad it was you who stood with us on our wedding day.  The ceremony you created for us was everything we could have hoped for.  The thoughts you shared, rituals you incorporated & vows you wrote were poignant and perfect for us.  So many guests mentioned what a special and memorable experience it was. We will hold the sentiments you shared in our hearts, always. Thank you!"-JG (a happy bride)
"I've been to a lot of weddings, but never been moved to tears. Thank you for reminding me what weddings are supposed to be about."  (wedding guest)

our union 

Our union is like this...You feel cold, so I reach for a blanket to cover our shivering feet.  A hunger comes into your body, so I run to my garden and start digging potatoes. You asked for a few words of comfort and guidance, and I quickly kneel by your side offering you a whole book as a gift. You ache with loneliness one night so much you weep, and I say here is a rope, tie it around me, I will be your companion for life.  -Hafiz, mystic, poet, inspiration
