Second Wedding Ceremonies

We are especially sensitive to the needs of couples marrying for the second time.  This often involves a deeper blending of families through the incorporation of children into the marriage.  We suggest that the children be included as fully as possible in the wedding ceremony to provide them with a sense of love and belonging that extends from the bride and groom themselves.  This can be achieved through such actions as including them in the wedding party, the unity candle or sand ceremony, or in the presentation of a gift at the end of the ceremony (see Ceremony – Optional Elements) We are also available for special counseling of such blended families as a post-nuptial service.
