The civil ceremony requires only the consent between the parts to be official. We are not substitutes for a rabbi, priest or any other religious authority.
All the other parts of the wedding ceremony can be personalized to reflect your preferences, traditions and culture. You may add wedding enhancements ceremonies (or rituals) that I have listed or create your own.
Language (one, bilingual or mixed)
Your ceremony may be officiated in one language or more. It means that you may select to have all in one language, in two languages or have only parts of the ceremony in two languages. I am also open to co-celebrants from different religions or for languages that I am not fluent. It works very well and it is very special for the couple and the guests.
