5 Important Ceremony Questions Answered By Rev. Dr. Henderson
We recommend just a few Officiant's with whom we've worked with before. Not all Officiants understand the concept of public speaking, working with sound equipment and other vendors, to make the Bride and Grooms ceremony something unique and special.
In a first of our series of interviews with Officiants, we asked Rev. Dr. Robert Henderson some important questions:
1) Do we have a choice between a standard ceremony and a ceremony that we collaborate with you in creating?
"I believe the wedding ceremony belongs to the bride and groom. It is fine if they prefer not to be involved in deciding on their ceremony; although I prefer to collaborate with the couple in creating a personal and unique ceremony that reflects who they are."
2) How long do you believe a ceremony should last?
"I do not believe in ceremonies that last too long leaving everyone uncomfortable. I also do not believe in weddings that are too short so that people hardly knew anything happened. I think in 30 minutes meaningful things can be said and done which honor and celebrate the commitment and love of the beginning of a marriage."
3) Will we be able to email, talk on the phone, meet in person, and perhaps Skype with you?
"The wedding preparation is the beginning of an important relationship I will have with the bride and groom. Whatever means of communication we can have is important to me so we can do whatever is necessary to make the wedding a very special day."
4) What do you believe should be focused on in the wedding ceremony?
"The bride and groom have the final say as to what is included in the ceremony. I believe the heart of a wedding is captured through the blending of the romantic and the spiritual."
5) Will we be able to stay in touch after the wedding?
"The wedding represents the initial stage of my relationship with the bride and groom and I look forward to staying in touch throughout their life. I am honored when we can be friends on Facebook."
