It is our belief that we bring not only couples together, but also bring children into the new family unit in ways that honor God and teach respect for each other as well as His commandments.
Both our Sand Ceremony and Family Unity Ceremony offer children the perfect opportunity not only to participate in a meaningful way in your wedding, but also to have their very own lasting keepsakes from this special day to treasure for a lifetime. The price for a Sand Ceremony is $99.00.
This is done immediately following your wedding. The Sand Ceremony includes the family ceremony, a beautiful keepsake glass vase, five 4×6 photographs, as well as the multicolored sand used in the ceremony.
Limit: 5 Children plus Bride and Groom. There will be an additional charge for parties exceeding this number. This does not include the price of your wedding ceremony. Please see our Wedding Package section for prices on Wedding Ceremonies.
The Sand Ceremony is a unique way to show the blending of each individual into the new family unit. The white sand represents Christ, and other colors represent each individual and the unique characteristics they bring. This beautiful new one-of-a-kind creation that is formed becomes a lasting keepsake reminder of your blended family.
We also offer a one-of-a-kind Christ-centered Unity Medallion Ceremony: $29.00 for the first child and $10.00 for each additional child (this does NOT include the medallion pendants or lapel pins, see prices below).
We offer two sizes of medallions:

These beautiful medallions have been custom-designed to honor Christ as the true center of the family unit. It is usually presented by the new parent to recognize and welcome the child(ren) as an important part of their new family. Parents may also choose to present the child(ren) with a family heirloom or other gift at this time. This ceremony also includes an exchange of vows between parents and child(ren) to establish a foundation of mutual love, respect and commitment both to God as well as each other. This ceremony is done immediately following the marriage ceremony.
Our Unity Candle Ceremony – $49.00, which includes the ceremony and beautiful lace-trimmed keepsake candle.
As the Unity Candle Ceremony begins, the couple is recognized as two distinct individuals, which are symbolized by a member of the groom’s family lighting his candle, and a member of the bride’s family lighting her candle. During the ceremony, the couple take their own candles and light their keepsake candle together, and extinguish their individual candles to symbolize that their separate lives are now blended into one.
Our Time of Tribute Ceremony – $29.00, which includes ceremony, memorial candle, and fresh keepsake red rose and tribute song “I Sure Miss You”.
This Time of Tribute offers an opportunity to honor someone special in the couple’s life who has passed on. We ask that you bring a picture or other special memento to be placed on the Table of Tribute. We provide a fresh keepsake red rose to symbolize your everlasting love. You will light a special memorial candle in this person’s honor, which symbolizes the light and joy that he/she brought into your life. Song of tribute is “I Sure Miss You”.
