Often during the interviewing process (via phone, email or text) I'm asked, "how long or how much time does the ceremony take?", great question.
My simple answer is generally 15-20 minutes, yet it will totally be up to you as a couple what you desire within your ceremony and how long you'd like it to be. Remember, it goes so fast the actually day, ceremony and reception compared to all the time and planning you have now invested into this glorious day.
Typically, I send to my couples several samples for their review; reminding them to keep in mind they can add, subtract, cut, and paste till they have a perfect sonnet that represents them as an individual and now becoming a married couple.
Keep in mind you can write your own vows, we can take something from a poem, a song, a religious reading, etc.. there are no limits when designing your sonnet for your day. There are additional ceremonies within the ceremony too (I will discuss soon in another blog entry) such as rose ceremonies, sand ceremonies, hand ceremonies, Hawaiian ceremonies and the list goes on.
Below is a basic guideline so do not hesitate to email or call me for further assistance (click on any of the links below for more information and directions regarding your ceremony):
