The Elements of a Traditional Wedding
Pastor Randy helps couples in Phoenix, AZ create traditional wedding ceremonies that truly embody their special bond. He takes the time to get to know couples on a deeper level through interviews and premarital counseling sessions. The goal is to translate each couple’s distinct dynamic into the ceremony in order to create a unique experience for each couple and their loved ones.
Planning a wedding can be overwhelming at times, but with the proper guidance, you can create the ceremony of your dreams. Pastor Randy helps couples set the tone for the entire flow of their wedding ceremony by breaking the event down into organized stages. Traditional wedding ceremonies consist of the following:
- Procession or Wedding March
- Approval Blessing
- Convocation, Invocation and Consecration
- Declaration of Intent
- Exchanging of the Rings
The convocation calls together the audience to recognize the purpose of the gathering. It is followed by the invocation, or opening blessing, that reflects the couple’s beliefs on the meaning of marriage. This is a perfect time to reflect on the history of the couple’s relationship. Some couples want the pastor to inject a funny story or build up the emotions leading to the nuptials. The invocation leads into the dedication blessing, also known as the consecration. Finally, the couple will each declare “I do” and exchange vows.
Vows are meaningful statements that express what love means to each individual and Pastor Randy can help couples with writing these if needed. He can also incorporate other elements that are meaningful to the couple, such as poems, stories or songs. Ask him for help in finding the perfect selections that convey the true spirit of the bond between you and your significant other.
It is recommended that couples take part in premarital counseling, since this helps them start the marriage with the right tools for a strong foundation. Counseling is a beneficial part of the wedding planning process and it is required in many places of worship. These services allow couples to communicate their feelings about marriage and it is here that couples find how deep and strong their love is. Pastor Randy can use these strengths and translate it into the wedding ceremony.
