Wedding Ceremonies

Rev. Bill Marchiony loves to do weddings! He promises you a unique ceremony that is joyfully presented, which both you and your guests will remember for years to come. He understands the importance of an elegant, contemporary, spiritual (rather than religious) ceremony. The focus is on you having a stress-free wedding.

A good ceremony is not necessarily a long ceremony. For your guests to really appreciate your wedding ceremony it is important that the words used reflect your commitment to one another and your view of marriage. It must be authentic to your relationship.

To facilitate creating your perfect wedding ceremony, you and your Fiance’ will receive a Complete Wedding Kit.  It contains various choices for the different parts of your ceremony.  At the first meeting you and Rev. Bill will discuss additional ideas to include your family or children in your ceremony. Furthermore the Wedding Time Capsule, Wine Cup, Sand Ceremony, Hands Passage, etc. are some additional options you can incorporate to make your day most memorable.

Using your choices, together you and Rev. Bill will create a customized ceremony that truly resonates with what is in your heart. When it is presented in a heartfelt manner, your guests will find it to be unique and wonderful.

Rev. Bill offers highly personalized services to couples, with two meetings - in person and/or phone or web to be sure every detail of your ceremony is just as you’d like. Note that if you do not require this level of personalized services Rev. Bill also gladly performs simple civil ceremonies.

Memorial Ceremonies

Rev. Bill is honored to officiate Memorial Services, sometimes called Celebration Of Life services. These provide an opportunity for family and friends to honor and remember their loved ones. It is where the community can come together to stand by those who grieve and show support and sympathy.

It is a time to affirm our faith as we reflect on life's transitions and the mystery of death.

To be part of such a sacred service is humbling and Rev. Bill does his very best to represent your loved ones wishes and to fulfill your requests as how to best pay tribute and celebrate the memory of his/her spirit. The goal is to provide a service that compassionately supports and consoles the family and friends of the loved one as they grieve, pay tribute to, fondly remember, laugh and cry together.

The ceremony will address the loss and grief you feel. The group will join in prayer and reflection, and remember your loved one with eulogies and personal stories.

Rev. Bill provides spiritual as well as non-religious memorial services, and will work closely with you to write the ceremony you desire for your loved one.
