Interfaith Weddings with Floralove Katz, Wedding Officiant
During our Planning Meeting and discussions, I learn about your backgrounds, about how you met, what you cherish about each other, about your religious and symbolic preferences. In the ceremony, I incorporate explanations relative to the traditions, symbols, spiritual elements that are important to you, to your families and friends.
As a professional singer, I can include the Cantorial Seven Blessings (Sheva Brachot), offer blessings over wine, bread, and in celebration of this wonderful moment in time, and Aaron’s Blessings for the closing benedictions.
I can offer meaningful readings from Corinthians, or other Bible passages, explanations about hand-fastening, broom-jumping, the Polish bread ceremony, about the tartans, the symbolism of breaking glass, the exchange of rings.
In the ceremony, I can include references to each heritage, to your shared values and goals. I may include special readings, testimonies, or important historic developments that bring you together.
Your family can be involved in the lighting of the Unity Candle, presentation of flowers, mixing of the sands, or in special readings.
My goal is to draft a wedding ceremony that it is truly memorable and meaningful for you, and your loved ones.
