Ceremony Enhancements

"From gift exchanges, special promises, and cultural traditions, these are just a few examples of beautiful ceremonial enhancements."

Unity Candle


Acknowledges the light of love that burns at the heart of every family. Using taper candles to light the “unity” candle, recognizes the joining together of lives, families, and loved ones through the marriage commitment.

The Memorial Candle

Departed relatives can be honored prior to the start of the wedding ceremony. A Memorial Candle Verse will be read in memory of the deceased family member during the lighting of the memorial candle.

Hand Binding

Allows couples to invite members of their bridal party to use a cord or family tartan to wrap their hands to symbolize their binding union of love, faith, friendship and trust.

Rose Presentation

The Bride and Groom exchange their first gift as a married couple. While couples may select any meaningful item, the rose is a traditional symbol of lasting love. The rose acts as a reminder that love needs mutual nurturing to reach its true beauty.

Sand Blending

The blending of colored sand crystals from clear glass vases, offers couples a special opportunity to use these natural elements of nature in their wedding ceremony.
