Much is different these days, and we may never return to how things were before Covid-19. But we will adapt, change, and overcome; weddings included.

We are often discussing commonwealth here at Central Ceremonies. It’s because we believe marriage is a mini-commonwealth, and because marriage ceremonies are part of building the greater commonwealth.

No, no . . . not the physical address. Although that is important (see my previous post on welcoming words). This is more about the message to the bride and groom.

Gather in, gather ’round. It’s the opening strains of a good story.  And the first words, the first notes, the first movements matter. They will either hook the listeners or lose their interest. Think of all the amazing first lines of great books: Genesis, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, A Tale of Two Cities. […]
