Eternal Unity Wedding 2018-03-29T14:47:57+00:00

$750 ($200 minimum deposit required)

Celebrate your union with significance by choosing the moving and heartfelt Eternal Unity Wedding Package.  This is also the perfect way to include and welcome children into a new blended family. It emphasizes  the importance of each child’s inclusion and cooperation in the unity of the new family.

This package includes TWO ceremonies — the Wedding Ceremony AND the Eternal Unity Ceremony, combined. 

1.   Hawaiian Sand Ceremony

Like the unity candle, the sand is used to symbolize the uniting of the couple. Their separate lives are symbolized by two vials of sand taken from beneath the wedding couple’s feet (if they are on the beach). After the exchange of rings, the officiant explains the meaning of the Unity Ceremony. The couple then come together, and pour into one vial, the two individual vials of sand. Their flowing together symbolizes the joining of the couple as they share their first experience of unity as a married couple. The newly formed union is represented by the intertwined pattern of sand created by the couple. This symbol is then a keepsake of your wedding day. 

This unity ceremony can be extended to include children. After the couple  have poured in their sand, the children can then collect sand from beneath the feet of the couple, which the children can then add to the unity container, thus including them in the newly formed family.  Before they add their sand, the officiant will address the children, asking for their love, cooperation, respect and support of the new family.

2.  Rose Unity Ceremony
In the past, the rose was considered a symbol of love and a single rose always meant only one thing – it meant the words “I love you.” So it is appropriate that your first gift as husband and wife would be a single rose.  In the beautiful Rose Ceremony, the couple give each other a Rose. In the old language of flowers, a single red rose always meant “I love you”. The rose ceremony gives recognition to the newly married couple and their commitment to their marriage. The couple are also advised to use this symbolic rose in trying times when they cannot seem to find the right words to say, such as “I am sorry,” or “I forgive you,” or “I am hurting.” The rose then says what matters most of all, “I still love you,” and can overpower all other things and all other words. If there are children who will be included in the new family, each child may then be given a rose and a hug by the couple, thus showing that the couple’s union and their love extends to and includes the children as well, and that a new family is being formed.

 

3.  Candle Unity Ceremony
The couple will light three candles representing the sacred bond between them. Each one lights the other’s candle. Then, by combining their flames, the couple light the third candle together, symbolizing their eternal unity. This moving unity ceremony can be performed at any indoor location of your choice in the Greater Daytona area from Ormond Beach to New Smyrna Beach. (Due to the ever present ocean breezes, the candle unity ceremony is not appropriate for beach weddings or most open outside locations. However, we can do an outside wedding and then move inside for the Candle Unity Ceremony, or you can choose the Rose Unity Ceremony or the Hawaiian Sand Unity Ceremony, which can be performed anywhere inside or outside.) 

The eternal unity ceremony you choose will be combined
with the wedding ceremony of your choice.
