Unconventional marriage vows for wedding ceremonies

Deevo Tindall - Monday, July 25, 2016

I've often wondered why wedding ceremony vows position the woman in such demeaning and subserviant capacities. (EXAMPLE).  Recently, I came across a very unconventional piece of literary work that proposes the very same concept and I wanted to share them.

From "Conversations with God: An Uncommon Dialogue, Book 3" by Neale Donald Walsch

Minister:
Neale and Nancy have not come here tonight to make a solemn promise or to exchange a sacred vow.
Nancy and Neale have come here to make public their love for each other; to give noticement to their truth; to declare their choice to live and partner and grow together - out loud and in your presence, out of their desire that we will all come to feel a very real and intimate part of their decision, and thus make it even more powerful.
They've also come here tonight in the further hope that their ritual of bonding will help bring us all closer together. If you are here tonight with a spouse or partner, let this ceremony be a reminder - a rededication of your own loving bond.
We'll begin by asking the question: Why get married? Neale and Nancy have answered this question for themselves, and they've told me the answer. Now I want to ask them one more time, so they can be sure of their answer, certain of their understanding, and firm in their commitment to the truth they share.  read more

Charlotte Maternity and Newborn Photography with past bride and groom

To say that I am in love with some of these photos might sound cliche... and of course it is, except it's not because the feelings I have for photographing Baby Avery and her mother and father before her are sentimental feelings.  I photographed Busola and Kenyatta's wedding three years ago, and to have the opportunity a few years later to come full circle with them, is why we do what we do!  I get goosebumps just thinking about it. :)  read more

Wedding Thank-Yous: How to Write a Perfect Thank-You Note

Did you think the work was over now that you said "I do?"  Unfortunately, once you are back from the honeymoon, you have a little bit of wedding wrap up to work on.  It is time to whip out some fun stationary and jot down a few thank you notes.  You want to make sure that all of your loved ones are properly thanked for the great wedding gifts you received and will continue to receive over the next few months.  It is not only polite and thoughtful to drop a little thank-you note in the mail (yes, we are speaking of snail mail, nothing electronic), but these notes act as confirmation that you have received those delayed gifts.  The process is really quick and easy.  Don't over think it - grab a pen and lets get to work.   read more

Paul and I could not be happier with our engagement and wedding pictures. Deevo and the Fusion team completely captured our vision and our personalities. Now we have the very difficult decision of picking which pictures to frame because they are all frame-worthy.
