A wedding is a ceremony where two people are united in marriage. My role as a wedding officiant is to conduct that ceremony. Much like a conductor, I use words and gestures to indicate what is to be said, who stands where, and who does what.
Additionally, I am acting in the capacity of a third party administering a contract between two people. Ultimately however, my role is to bring two people who share the same values and are in love, together.
At the end of the day, saying "I do" is saying to each other that you are choosing to walk together down this path we call life. Below are the steps to getting married.
